The Great River Road’s Mississippi section follows the river through the farmlands of the deep South. It passes through historic cities such as Greenville, Vicksburg and Natchez. Riders will also ride part of the Natchez Trace as they follow the route. You have the opportunity to visit the Vicksburg National Memorial Park along this section as well.
The Mississippi section of the Great River Road is split into 2 parts; Walls to Mayersville and Mayersville to Woodville.
Note: We have created 2 sets of routes for each state. 1 is for riding North to South and the other is for riding South to North. Each route is notated either N to S (for North to South) or S to N (for South to North).

Our digital routes are designed to operate in most GPS devices. In addition to GPSs, our routes should work with several smartphone apps. They will NOT work on Google Maps or Apple Maps.
If you plan on using a smartphone app, we recommend the REVER app. REVER will work with both Android and iOS and in addition to navigation it has many other great features.
For best results in REVER, download the route to your computer first, then import into your smartphone. Turn by turn may not work, so we recommend that you utilize the "Follow the Line" option.
