If I were you..........
Leave the Trace near the end and hit Port Gibson, Miss. Cool military park and museum there. On to Lorman, Miss and the best food EVER at The Old Country Store. Continue down to St Francisville, La and cross the ferry to New Roads. Head up Highway 1 (kind of boring) to north of Alexandria and then jump on 119 --runs along the Cane River -- gorgeous scenery, 484/494/119 will take you into Natchitoches and you can get back on 84.
You said Texas Trip......... Where in TX?
Weather here in March can either be hot as Hades or cool. Last year I went to the Panhandle and it was cold when I left and a week later I was in a mesh jacket.
