The Natchez Trace Parkway is the ultimate motorcycle route. It’s a 444 mile historic road from Natchez, MS to Nashville, TN through beautiful scenery, curvy roads, history, interesting stops, minimal traffic, places to stay and good restaurants. What else could you ask for?
During this time of year, spring is the perfect time to hop on a motorcycle and take a relaxing drive on the Trace. The wildflowers are blooming and the trees and grass are a beautiful, bright green color. The weather is just right during the spring–warm enough to ride but not too hot yet.
Traffic is generally light and there are often more motorcycles on the road than vehicles. You don’t have to worry about stop signs or stop lights… just keep cruising, enjoy the scenery and the wind blowing through your hair. The Parkway is clean and smooth, so you won’t be tackling bumpy roads.
All along the Trace in Mississippi, Alabama and Tennessee you’ll find historical and nature attractions. Take a break, notice the gorgeous nature that surrounds you and learn a little history at the designated mileposts. Numerous side roads take you past antebellum and victorian homes, sunken roads, civil war battlefields and southern towns.
If you’re feeling hungry, restaurants are located just off the Trace in our corridor communities. Head to scenictrace.com, click Communities, then click on Restaurants under the community in which you would like to search.
Need a gasoline or a restroom? No problem! Restroom facilities are provided by the National Park Service about every twenty miles or so.
*Note: The Natchez Trace Parkway was required to reduce its annual budget by five percent, in accordance with the sequestration provision of the Budget Control Act of 2011. Reductions are necessary to comply with sequestration, but the park remains open and welcomes visitors. Click here to see the effects of the sequestration.
