Mississippi River Trail (Louisiana)

Nice riding trail.

January, 2017 by almremod

Rode from the zoo to the spillway and back. Really nice ride with no stopping. Total of 54.2 miles round trip. There is good parking next to the zoo. There is a bathroom about 16 miles north from the start.

Mississippi River Trail (Louisiana)

Great Ride

November, 2016 by crad94

In town for a bachelor party this weekend. While the crazies slept, I rode from Audubon Park to the end and back. Just under 52 miles...All the trail is paved and some recently updated... Solid trail to log some miles. The ride back sucked a little due to being into the wind, so keep that in mind!

this could be the start of a great friendship!

September, 2016 by temeyer

Brought my Brompton on the train to New Orleans to ride the Tammany Trace Trail but did not expect to be able to ride to the French Quarter from Metairie Road on a newly paved beautifully landscaped trail to the heart of the city. A great start to being bike friendly!

Serenaded by the vast amphibian life and the views were spectacular, too. Great place to escape from the hustle and bustle of life... Even if just for a couple hours. If you're a reader or looking for a quiet place to meditate, take the walk to the end of the trail and enjoy the open air.

Awesome Trail

May, 2015 by arkansasflash

Rode the river levee trail yesterday. There are two sections of it that are closed. One is easy to navigate around and is short. The second is longer and you'll end up walking your bike. The plantations are amazing. Great views of the Mississippi River. Tandyou'll have to

Mississippi River Trail (Louisiana)

perfect bike path

September, 2014 by jvanpelt

The trail extends from the Audubon Zoo parking lot all the way to the Bonnet Carre Spillway, a total of around 25 miles. It's a great trail, although as ckelleher0 mentioned there is little shade. However, I am a cyclist and find that it is perfect for early morning or evening training rides. There are a few service roads that cross the path, but they are rare and bikers / pedestrians have the right-of-way. It is sooo nice not to have such a stretch of bike trail with absolutely no concern for traffic.

There are plenty of places along River Rd to stop for a break or to refill your water bottles.

The levee construction is definitely a hindrance, but it is due to be complete by the end of 2015, I believe. Check out these two links for more information: http://bit.ly/1rw4mtj and http://bit.ly/1q8zXG8

However, even with the construction there is currently about 20 miles of continuous path open (as of 9/14) in Jefferson and St Charles Parishes.

Construction at the Audubon Entrance.

July, 2014 by webassett

I left Audubon Park and traveled west along the trail. After 1.5 miles the trail is under construction. I tried to follow the trail along the heavily traveled side road and could not find where the construction ends after 1 more mile. I am not from the area and if someone else knows about the length of the construction please make that information available. I and from the Charlotte, NC area and was excited to travel this entire length only to be disappointed.

Mississippi River Trail (Louisiana)

Rollerblading Fiasco

December, 2012 by mikeman

First of all, I went there and Rollerbladed, NOT as a biker or runner, so you may want to take this with a grain of salt. The Trail is not smooth at all. It is very course in many areas, and small pebbles and stones are common. Also, many small repairs are needed due to wear and tear. One section was closed for about a mile down by Audubon Park so be weary of this possibility... You will have to walk the grassy surface. The Trail is also very suseptible to wind due to its elevation and proximity to the Mississippi River. Traffic crossings abound, due to the shipyard ports and employees driving in and out. Also, the smell of toxic waste and/or burning fuel will be noticed from time time.

The only redeeming quality about this trail is its truly spectacular views of the Mississippi, but even the view are diminished because of its industrial ports and smells.

I give the Trail 2 out of five stars out of generosity. In my opinion, you are much better off just going to Audubon Park and doing the 2 mile loop a few times instead.
