From the bloggers at Watsons Wander:
Heading south and west from Nashville it only made sense to travel the Natchez Trace National Parkway. No trucks? Check! No obnoxious billboards or other signs screaming about fast food joints and gas stations? Check! No stop lights, stop signs, or slowing for small towns? Check, check, check!
Instead what we got was 444 miles of scenic highway from the rolling hills outside of Nashville all the way to the low country of Natchez, Miss.
There are two ways to drive the Trace. Either you bomb through the whole thing at once taking advantage of the lack of traffic and watching the scenic countryside go by, or you take your time and stop to enjoy the numerous historical markers and hiking opportunities. We chose a hybrid approach.
