Thanks- I am pretty familiar with the Blue Ridge Parkway- It seemed that the Natchez had a bit less traffic than that-  but good to know the trouble areas.

Thank you!  Is it low traffic in most areas on the parkway?- since we will have kids with us- that is a concern.



Routes / Natchez Trace Parkway
« on: July 13, 2017, 07:48:40 am »

We just came back from a two-family trip on the GAP and C&O Trail for 6 days- It was amazing- the kids did great!  I am researching trails for our next trip.  We do a van-supported trip right now at least as our youngest family members are 10 and 11 and it gives us a great back-up.  I am wondering if anyone has done a trip on the Natchez Parkway?  I know that there is car traffic allowed there- and I have some information from the NPS but wanted to ask people here.  We would not be doing the whole thing but would pick a section of it if we chose this choice.  Anyone done a trip here?  Thanks,

Thank you so much for your advice.  I read the tires again and they are 32 -630 .  I do have an old bike (Bought it when I was 13 ) but I love it- It has a Brooks hard leather saddle that I absolutely love and a Runnels frame and my dh just refurbished it for me- I am so comfortable on it as I have ridden it many, many miles and on my trans-continental trip- so  I am going to take both of your suggestions to the local bike shop so at least I sound like I have a clue about tires.  Thank you!

I am new here-  We are planning a family trip on the GAP and C&O Trails this summer for about a week.  One of my daughters and I have  road  ( touring ) bikes and for these bike trails they recommend a hybrid ( though they say if you have a road bike you just might want to get knobbier tires)  I can't afford to get a new bike for one of my daughters and I so I want to get some tires that will work well.  My current tires are 27 x1 1/4.  Any suggestions of what kinds might be best?

Thanks,  Margaret
