Plan Your Visit
Whether you are planning a short afternoon visit, drive, or hike to a multiple day journey to follow the whole route, there are many ways of visiting and traveling on the Natchez Trace. This "Plan Your Visit" section has all types of information and tips to make your visit a memorable one. By design, there are no food, gas, or lodging services "on" the Parkway. However, just beyond the trees in communities throughout the Parkway's 444-mile length, you can find everything that you will need and many places worth exploring.
Be sure to check out the recreational vehicle page if traveling by RV, and the bicycling the parkway page if you are pedaling your way. No matter how you travel the Natchez Trace, knowing where to get food, gas, and lodging can make your trip a much more enjoyable one.
