Planning a ride on the Trace is straightforward; it's perfect for a two-day journey. Of course, you could cover the entire stretch in one very long day, but why rush through paradise? Tupelo is close to the halfway point and makes a logical layover site. I took my ride in early May, well before summer tourists flock to the area. Plan your gas stops carefully—there is no gas available on the Trace itself so you'll have to jump off to fill up. Finally, check out the many resources available on the web to customize your daily itinerary. Key attractions are easily located using mile markers.

Right: Gray beards of Spanish moss wave gently in the breeze beside this Methodist Church, the only remaining building in Rocky Springs, Mississippi.
