We drove the parkway from Natchez to Hwy 20 or Milepost 385.... we left because of a detour! You MUST get the map of the Trace to know what every site is! If you don't, you will just see the markers! 50 mph is a nice pace....leisurely drive! Very Interesting!

This is our second time we have traveled the parkway. It's ideal for the motorcyclist or if you own a sports car. Watch your speed as rangers do patrol. Restrooms are plentiful and very clean

After visiting the National Park Shiloh battlefield, we traveled south to get to the Natchez Trace to enter into Tupelo. What a wonderful experience. I am so glad we did this. The Park service has done an exceptional job posting highlights, overlooks and trails. We took advantage of server of these. The parkway is immaculate and so beautiful. So proud... More

Its a great trip if you like history. After a few hours, it does get monotonous but no more so than an Interstate. You have to plan ahead for fuel, hotels and food. There are some towns along the way that are big enough to have everything.

Too dark at night, need Street lamps at junctions. Easy to miss turn offs. Exit's not clearly marked.

The speed limit keeps this from being a 5 star. Beautiful scenery especially in the spring and fall. Not a place to be though, if you are in a hurry.

We live in a big country, and, traveling across it, we're typically trying to get from one city to the next as quickly as possible. The Natchez Trace is a 444-mile reminder to slow down and recall how much much beauty, history, and richness there is to be found between cities. You can't be in a hurry to get anywhere... More

Never heard of this National Park. We only drove through part of this parkway. We stopped at a visitor center and the young man was very helpful. We walked back on the actual trail and saw 13 unknown Confederate Soldiers graves. It was beautiful and felt sacred. We found the Battlefield and found a cemetery that was old and beautiful... More
