Naches Trace

Is the Naches Trace a worth while trip. We live in Florida so a good ride to get there. Is a class A and toad a problem on the parkway? Is there enought things of interest to see. Like to hear from those that have done this trip. Thanks for any info.

We travel the Trace every year when heading to TX for the winter. We have not been south of Jackson. Lots of place to stay and visit. Here is a link to Natchez Trace NP.
You should not have a problem with a MH and toad. Northern portion of Trace has lots of turns and hills.
There can be a lot of bike riders on the trace during summer months. Makes for tight driving with only 2 lanes and very few shoulders.
We like the ride away from the hectic driving other roads. 400 + miles of driving through a park at 50 mph.

We drove it from outside of Nashville south to get to Red Bay, Al. (where Tiffin is) The ride was very comfortable with very little traffic and no trucks. We only stopped a couple of times to look at sites. Not problem towing a car though. Oh yea, there were a few bike riders to look out for.

We have driven every mile of the Trace and parts of it twice with our DP & toad. Next trip I plan to skip the twisty turns close to Nashville.

Not all the turnoffs can handle a long RV combo, slow down and check before turning in.
If you want to see wildlife get a very early am start.

I live mid way of the Traceand travel it regularly. The northern 15 miles are pretty curvey so be prepared to meet yourself a couple of times. All turn offs are labeled if there is not a loop to traverse without backing up so pay attention and you should have no problems with a toad. There are no gas stations nor any signage along the Trace so if you need fuel or anything, you will need a GPS or something to help out. I do not recommend travel after dark, when the sun goes down, all 440 miles belongs to the deer and they are not above sacrificing there life to prove it. Fiberglass and a 100 lb doe do not mix so be forewarned.

Had a class A, with toad, and the Trace is a beautiful way to go!. No trucks, slow speed, lets you enjoy the ride. There is a gas station on the trace around Tupelo, I think. We went all the way , from Nashville, to Natchez. We also had audio tapes to listen to as we traveled. Helped to identify parts of the old "trace". The old mansions along the route are not to be missed. One, Longview, I think is still as it was in 1860. Amazing !!!
