South / Natchez Trace Northern Terminus Connection to Nashville
« on: September 06, 2012, 12:25:03 am »
Hi all. Just wanted to let you all know of some recent developments in Nashville. The northern terminus of the natchez trace leaves you at the outskirts of the city. I know many tourists wonder: "what's the best way to get into Nashville from here?" This year, Nashville unveiled the Music City Bikeway, a ~26 mile route through downtown Nashville. Good news for adventure cyclists: its an easy connection from the Natchez Trace. This is the route you should take if you want to get into Nashville from the Trace.

Here's a map of the MCB: http://maps.nashville.gov/MusicCityBikeway/

You can see that the southern terminus of the MCB is Vaughns Gap and Highway 100. The Trace ends at HWY 100, 6.4 miles down the road from the MCB. This section of road can be congested and there are some bad rumble strips in certain places, but it is an easy connection nonetheless. Once you get to the MCB, your route will be well signed. It is a combination of greenways, bike lanes, and shared paths.

I hope this helps somebody plan a trip. Come visit us in Nashville!
