Natchez Trace is a piece of cake by comparison. Scenery blander but still very attractive. Houses are an infrequent sight, no billboards or any adverts on the trace. It is somewhat rural but access on/off is frequent and towns or crossroads never very far. Elevation changes typically 50 -200' range, occasionally hills a mile or so long but grade rarely if ever above 5%. Road surface very good, traffic much less than SD, maybe comparable to some sections of BRP. Most of my time has been on the Tenn
section, can't speak for the Ms portion though the general design is the same.
Didn't notice any Hawgs on the Trace last summer during an August century. Steve
