      This is the official parkway headquarters (and the only real information centre on the Trace) and therefore a must for maps, directions and other advice. There's also a 20-minute self-guided walk through the woods. With just one gas station, no motels and not a single food outlet along its entire length, the Natchez Trace Parkway is a corridor of real beauty and tranquility.

      If you go:
      The full 444-mile route from Natchez to Nashville is mileposted from south to north; the visitor centre is at milepost 266.
