Top Answers To Natchez Trace Parkway Travel Questions
You sure can, Alberto. The Trace runs south from near Jackson to its southern terminus at Natchez, for a distance of just over 100 miles. There's a map with highlights on the NPS website at: http://bit.ly/h6azmH If you're looking to fuel up before the drive, don't miss Sal & Phil's in Ridgeland just north of Jackson. The crab, crayfish, and po-boys here will do you right before you set off!
The only gas station on the parkway itself is at the Jeff Busby camping area (just past milepost 190), though plenty of exit routes offer access to gas stations and other services in communities around the Trace. The NPS's Natchez Trace website offers a link to a PDF document (look for the motel thumbnail, lower right of page) listing information about local communities along the parkway at: http://www.nps.gov/natr/planyourvisit/index.htm

According to this (http://1.usa.gov/e7vGsH) the speed limit is about 50 m.p.h. throughout most of the park, though there are some areas where you have a slower speed. There are plenty of turn-out areas for cars to stop and sightsee.
