I haven't done it, yet, but a group of us will be riding it in April. We're starting in Natchez and heading north to Nashville, hoping the winds will be coming from the south most of the time. A majority of the hills will be in the Tennessee area at the end. (We all live in southeastern Tennessee, so we're used to hills.)

One of our friends set up our tour, so I'm not exactly sure where we'll be staying, but he did say that some of the lodging is quite a ways off of the Trace. We will have a SAG vehicle that will transport us. (That will be my husband, who is a non biker that we refer to as "Saggy Bob!")

I'm assuming the bugs won't be bad in October. They aren't around here. Maybe a 'sparker' from Mississippi can weigh in on that subject.

There are a lot of good resourses on the internet to check out about the Trace. I'm sure a lot of your questions can be answered that way, too.

I'll let you know how our trip goes!

...and then in the middle of everything, you realize you're alive right now, and the time to live is right now!

My husband and I are thinking of riding the Natchez trace in the fall this year (...maybe spring of 2012). It extends approximately 440 miles from Nashville, TN to Natchez. MI. We are probably going to go for a "credit card" tour instead of camping. My questions are: Are there still a lot of bugs out in October, and is it possible to get hotel rooms at that time? I have read a couple of books that suggest that we get reservations really early in the year, but we aren't 100% sure if time will allow a fall tour yet.
