According to book reviewer, Jim Grant:
About 40% of the book is taken up with auxiliary routes that either start or cross the Trace and are not a part of traveling the Trace from end to end.
From David Dupuis:
I planned for this ride for the better part of eight months using Glen’s book as a guide. As this was my first solo self contained ride I wanted to do it right. When it came down to departure date I started to organize all my gear,I had a stack of maps and literature that weighed in at about 15 lbs! I quickly narrowed this down to one map supplied free from The National Parks Service and Bicycling The Natchez Trace by Glen Wanner.
We've lived in the Nashville area since 2001 — and all 3 of our houses have been situated relatively close to the Natchez Trace Parkway. To me, the 'The Trace' is a hidden gem of Nashville — a place to go when you want to get away from it all and be one with nature. I've hiked it, biked it, motorcycled it, walked it with my dogs, and driven my car on The Natchez Trace Parkway more times than I can count! This is where I share some of my favorite things to do along the Natchez Trace Parkway — which runs 444 miles from Nashville Tennessee to Natchez Mississippi and through parts of Alabama. When I'm not enjoying the beautiful outdoors along the Natchez Trace Parkway, you'll find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
