The Trace can be a very relaxing ride , if you have adjusted your
expectations for a languid tour, not a timed run.Its character
varies with the seasons. If ridden at the speed limit from end to end with only a few
interruptions for scenic stops or short visits to towns just off the
Trace it will actually take no longer than it would to connect the end points using
the regular road system because the scenic parkway has no stop signs and cuts diagonally across the state and all other routes. In a spring ride from Natchez to near
Nashville I saw lots of snowbirds in motorhomes heading north along it
because they could so avoid heavy traffic . In late fall I imagine
they use it similarly in the opposite direction
If you want to see and experience regular Mississippi towns however
the Natchez Trace will disappoint you., better stick to all the other state
and county roads.
