The riding conditions on the Natchez Trace Parkway are excellent with cyclists enjoying an almost traffic-free road. The two-lane road is gently graded and is generally well paved. Although there are no shoulders, the road edges merge evenly onto a grass shoulder. No commercial traffic is permitted on the Parkway and a 50 mph speed limit is strictly enforced. At Jackson, where the parkway is not yet completed, you will be riding an urban route to connect to the next parkway segment. The Parkway ends near Natchez, Mississippi, and from there southward the route passes through rural woodland areas of southern Mississippi and Louisiana, where narrow two-lane roads and timberland dominate the scenery. The route ends in Baton Rouge. This route intersects the Southern Tier Bicycle Route just north of the city.

Your maps are always filled with good guidance, great tips, and accurate information. As for the Great Rivers ride, I haven't done it yet. I'm planning on riding it this year. Next year I'm doing the Northern Tier again: east to west this time. Too good to only do once!
