The National Park Service, or NPS, provides a free, printable map of the Natchez Trace Parkway on its website. Maps are also available at information centers located along the Parkway or by requesting an information packet from the NPS. Third party websites like NatchezTraceTravel.com offer mail orders for hard-copy maps.
Visitors can acquire additional information by mailing, emailing or calling the Visitor Center during regular office hours. Check for closures of Parkway facilities, trails or other services on its website. The Parkway itself is open year-round, although it is subject to closure due to severe weather or construction.
No commercial services are available on the Parkway. The NPS provides an informational handout on its website that lists locations where food, fuel and lodging may be obtained.
Natchez Trace Travel has individual maps for Tennessee, Northeast Mississippi and Alabama, Central Mississippi and Southern Mississippi. In addition, the site has interactive parkway maps organized by state. These allow close-up views of specific mileposts with points of interest, such as bed and breakfasts, markets, gas stations and restaurants. There is also a link for receiving a free parkway map through the mail.
