The Natchez Trace Parkway is a 444-mile scenic route stretching from Natchez, Mississippi to Nashville, Tennessee. The terrain along the Trace changes from 70 to 1,100 feet in elevation and passes through five degrees of latitude. It is one of the most beautiful drives for viewing fall foliage, and we can prove it. Actually, our visitors can prove it…
Our social media followers (TheNatchezTrace) love playing photographer. Who could resist taking pictures with amazing fall colors all around? Just for our readers, the Natchez Trace Compact put together a gallery of gorgeous fall color photos taken this fall by Parkway visitors.
A picture is worth a thousand words. Prepare to be speechless when you flip through these:

In addition to stunning foliage, the Trace offers cyclists a great route for riding, recreational activities, and historic sites and attractions. Along either side of the Natchez Trace Parkway, visitors can stop for a good night’s rest at the quaint B&Bs and hotels available. We can’t forget to mention the delicious (and we mean DELICIOUS) restaurants along the way, too. If you love to eat, be outdoors, and see interesting attractions, the Natchez Trace Parkway is for you.
