Two Days on the Natchez Trace

When we lived in Brentwood -- a suburb just outside of Nashville, Tennessee -- 'RandoGirl' and I took this two-day tour a couple of times. Most of it is on the Natchez Trace, a federal road closed to commercial traffic and carefully maintained by the National Park Service, making it a truly superb bicycle route. It makes for an easy self-supported tour; you can follow the route either to one of two bed and breakfasts, or to a full-amenities campground. By following the "off-Trace" part of the route, you'll go by a great country store for lunch, and a fine little winery for an afternoon break.
