    Natchez Trace Parkway

    A friend and I are going to attempt to ride the Natchez Trace National Parkway. Do any of you have suggestions about stops, sights and other things that should not be missed? Any help would be much appreciated

    The journal website—

    www.crazyguyonabike.com

    has 4 or 5 reports of travels along this route. Just use the search term "Natchez".
    Even the old horse in the barn still dreams of galloping a thousand miles....

    It might be a good idea to go from south to north as to keep the wind at your back.

    This book is helpful, but a bit out of date. The Trace is complete, no Jackson bypass needed.

    I'll probably end up doing that. My parents live a short distance away from Nashville, so I can have them pick us up at the end of the trip.
