We live near the Natchez Trace Parkway in Nashville. We’ve driven, biked, motorcycled, RV’d & walked it. Here’s how to enjoy The Trace if you only have 1 hour.

These videos show the most unique qualities and beauty of the Natchez Trace Parkway. If you’ve never been, you will definitely want to schedule a trip to the Natchez Trace Parkway after you see these!
As long as I’ve lived in Middle Tennessee, this is one of the first times that I’ve seen peak Autumn colors arrive so early: before the end of October! Here are some photos, plus info about viewing fall foliage in Tennessee.
I live near the Natchez Trace Parkway in Nashville. Aside from being there and experiencing it for yourself, the next best way to get a feel for what it’s really like is to view photos of the Natchez Trace Parkway. Following is a collection of Natchez Trace Parkway photos taken by lots of different people.
Peak colors are only days away, folks! Compare today’s photos with last week’s photos. Then compare those with last year’s peak fall foliage on the Natchez Trace Parkway…
Unfortunately, it appears that we’re still a week or so away from peak colors here on the north end of the parkway. Here are some photos of fall foliage as it stands now on the Natchez Trace Parkway. Enjoy!
These cows were grazing within a few feet of the Parkway itself. They had obviously escaped from some nearby fenced-in farmland.
I don’t know much about turkeys, but I’d say it’s baby turkey season here in Tennessee! These past 2 weeks, I’ve been seeing LOTS of little tiny wobbly-legged birds playing follow-the-leader along the side of the Natchez Trace Parkway. It’s soooo cute!
Every time I’m driving on the Natchez Trace Parkway, I can’t help but glance over at The Judd’s family farm. You can actually get a great look at both, Naomi Judd and Ashley Judd’s homes from the Natchez Trace Parkway — near Garrison Road in Leiper’s Fork, Tennessee. Here are some pictures…
I hope you enjoy seeing the minuscule, yet oh-so-colorful changes, as they take place over these last days of Autumn. Enjoy these pictures which were taken on November 5th…
By the looks of things on the Natchez Trace Parkway today, I’d say we’re a little over halfway into the color-changing process for the year. Enjoy the pictures of beautiful Fall colors on the Natchez Trace Parkway in Tennessee.
This is the bridge that spans across Highway 96 in Franklin Tennessee on the northern end of the Natchez Trace Parkway. I’m hoping to find another blue sky day to photograph this same bridge amidst some bright reds, oranges, yellows, and browns — in the form of leaves changing colors soon!
As you can see, the leaves are just now starting to change colors on the Natchez Trace Parkway…
I’d call this another ‘hidden gem’ on the Natchez Trace Parkway. It’s an up close and personal view of that mammoth expansion bridge that crosses over Highway 96 in Franklin, Tennessee.
To date, I have taken 274 photos of this particular Natchez Trace Parkway bridge! The bridge itself spans across Highway 96 in Franklin, Tennessee, near Nashville.

Springtime along the Natchez Trace Parkway means a sea of purple trees everywhere you look. Redbud trees in full bloom are a sight to see in the Spring on the Natchez Trace!
A frequent occurrence around here is watching the sun set over (and under) the Natchez Trace bridge. View the photo in its full size here…
Around here, we refer to wild turkeys as Tennessee yard birds. And it is practically guaranteed that every time you take a drive in the country, you will see a Tennessee turkey. Usually more than one. Here’s proof…
Tennessee colors compared one Saturday afternoon, and the following Sunday morning… what a difference a day makes when the colors are at their peak!
There no truer sign of autumn than the vibrant colors witnessed along the Natchez Trace Parkway in Tennessee. Early November appears to be the best time to view the fall foliage in the Natchez Trace State Park… in the northernmost part towards Nashville at least.
