Driving Natchez Trace

are there any low height restrictions you folks have came across on the Natchez Trace. We are planning to drive it from Mississippi to Memphis.

I don't think there are any on the Trace between the Tennessee River and Nashville but I'm almost certain there is at least one or two on the secondary roads going UNDERNEATH the Trace.

underneath

that's what I was the most concerned about. I figure the Parkway is pretty good but the pull off exits are the concern. I heard there are a couple of low bridges stopping to get gas etc... but trying to find out where.

A quick view of the map at Allstays.com shows a 11'4" overpass on TN-241 (Napier Lake Road in Lewis County, Tennessee) to be about the only one on the northern part of the Trace. As I recall, it's a very small county road that doesn't have any type of amenities.

If you plan the trip using RV Trip Wizard, you can see all the hazardous bridges on the side roads.

The Trace itself is good, but go to the website https://www.nps.gov/natr/index.htm and read the parts about RV's having trouble at some of the pullout areas along, the way. I just looked and some of the pullout areas are closed due to storm damage.

One that I know of for sure is going under the Trace to the Thousand Trails campground at the northern end. There may be others, but there are none on the parkway itself.

That CG warns you about which exit to take to avoid the underpass that eats RV AC units. One reviewer noted the number of busted AC units laying by the side of the road. The underpass comes up quick if you get off at the wrong exit.
