Here is yet another piece of useless trivia about the Natchez Trace Parkway:
All milemarkers are located on the east side of the road.
That means, when you’re driving north (from Mississippi, through Alabama, and into Tennessee), the milemarkers will be on the righthand side of the road. And when you’re driving south (from Nashville to Biloxi), the milemarkers will be on the lefthand side of the road.
There. So now you know.
For what it’s worth, and just to make this article a little bit longer…
Deer on the Natchez Trace Parkway are usually found grazing at the tree line on the west side of the road.
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).
