This is me finally getting to be the passenger for once.
Usually, whenever I’m on the Natchez Trace Parkway, I’m driving our Jeep.
But, a couple of times each year, Jim will go with me.
Like this particular day, when we decided to visit Jackson Falls for a brief Autumn hike… with the dog.
Or, this day, when we went for a day-long hike from the Old Trace to Garrison Creek and back… with the dog.
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).
