Natchez Trace Parkway Maps
Because the central feature of the Natchez Trace Parkway is a 444-mile, tri-state motor road, maps are an important tool to make your visit more enjoyable. The standard National Park Service map of the Parkway can be easily viewed using the "view map" button near the top of this page. Printing the map is a different challenge. The map is nearly nearly four feet long! To print the map, it is recommended that you print each of the four maps below, or just the sections that you need. Note that Map 1 is the southern most quarter of the Parkway, starting in Natchez, Mississippi. Map 4 is the northern most quarter in Tennessee.
Printing Note: Use the "shrink to fit page" command, or the equivalent for your printer when printing these maps.
