Tammany Trace

Great Food and Beer Along the Way

September, 2022 by hooksetter

This is a great trail that passes through nice towns along the way. Definitely pay attention to closures along the route and plan accordingly. While we have ridden portions of the trail several times, we have never been able to complete the ride end to end due to closures.
Perhaps it has been reported before and we missed it, but we discovered access to the Abita Brewer yesterday that is definitely worth a stop if you like beer. After leaving Abita Springs headed towards Covington, watch for a white decorative bike at the intersection of Josephine St and the Trace and turn right; the Brewery parking lot is a few hundred yards on the right.
Supposedly there is also Trace access to the Chafunkta Brewery at the tunnel under Hwy 59, but it wasn't obvious with the tunnel construction still in progress. Happy trails.

Tammany Trace

Shady, easy going

August, 2022 by cbradley55

Started at the eastern edge, smooth sailing all the way to Fountainbleu State Park then returned. Trees hug the path providing lots of shade, looks like recent asphalt. Mostly flat with slight incline. I liked the lily pond and the drawbridge was the smallest I've seen. Any construction that may exist must be on the western side because my ride was fully open.

Tammany Trace

Great trail-should have paid attention to closures!

June, 2022 by longellob

I had been looking forward to riding this trail for months after reading all the positive reviews. This was our first bike trip toting our dog in her "carriage" and the Trace would be a great test of my strength and stamina! We started in Covington and made it to the I-12 construction point. My thought going in was we could just cross over the highway and pick up the trail on the other side...nope; especially not towing a dog behind! Will definitely have to put this on our list to do again when construction is complete! I saw comments about no pets on the trail...we didn't experience any issues. I did see signs saying no pets but I assumed it meant in the grassy area where the signs were, to keep it clean.

Pontchartrain Lakefront Trail

Easy ride, flat, safe, and scenic

May, 2022 by davidmsr

Nice trail on the south side of Lake Pontchartrain. Very smooth, flat, and scenic trail overlooking lake. Parked at Bonnabel Boat launch/park. (Close to causeway bridge) Safe and plenty of parking spots. Also has port-a-potties at this location and at Laketown fishing pier next to Treasure Chest Casino. Observed police patrols in all the parks, plus locals walking and running alone. No shade on this trail, but nice breeze off the lake the day we rode. (If you want shade, ride on the north side of the lake-Tammany Trace)

Tammany Trace

AWESOME TRAIL

April, 2022 by thejake91739

On a wet, March morning we braved the sprinkles and enjoyed as much of the Tammany Trace as we could before the full brunt of the storm hit later in the day. We got wet and had to modify our bike ride, but it did not dampen our admiration and enthusiasm for this awesome trail we traveled across the country from California to ride. This 5 star Rail Trail Hall of Fame trail absolutely lived up to its reputation!
The trail was smooth, flat, safe, quiet, and picturesque. If you enjoy long, straight, peaceful rides along tree covered trails accompanied by the sounds of birds, then this is the trail for you to ride, walk, or jog.
We loved our visit to Slidell and would highly recommend this trail as a road trip destination experience!

From the FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH DEPARTMENT: I noticed a couple of previous reviews mentioning the e-bikes being banned. One rider so ticked off he gave the trail just one star. We had several interactions with the trail ranger, and she had no problem with us (a couple of senior citizens) utilizing our quiet Swytch pedal assist systems. No throttle, no roar, no excessive speed. Too many e-bikes aren't bikes, they're motorcycles. I'm just sayin' . . .

Tammany Trace

Closure Update

March, 2022 by shoemakerma78

We rode the trail yesterday and found that the trail closure now extends from the Dove trailhead (south of I-12) all the way north to Robert Road (north of the Rt. 59 tunnel). This is due to I-12 widening construction as well as construction at the tunnel. The signs indicated closure as "indefinite" so watch for updates. We road Abita Springs to Covington trailhead and Dove Rd to Mandeville trailhead. Last week we road from Mandeville trailhead to the Bayou Lacomb draw bridge. Very nice rides. Also note that the rules of the trail do indicate "no electric or motorized vehicles" with no exception for e-bikes. We suspect this may be due to horses that share portions of the trail. This may also be the reason for another rule stating "No pets allowed". This is the first trail that we have encountered that does not allow pets.

Tammany Trace

Not nice to E-bikers.

February, 2022 by blainejarboe

Wow...All I can say is stay away from this trail if you have an ebike. Sadly, I encountered a ranger who insisted my ebike was a "motorized vehicle" and thus not allowed on the Tammany Trace. I was on a road trip and was looking forward to this trail, but left without even pedaling a single foot on the trail. So disappointed that some people are so misinformed about the laws regarding ebikes. Fortunately, I found less than an hour away some GREAT trails in Alabama. I highly recommend heading East and skipping this place.

St. Anthony Avenue Trail

a trail that has gone neglected

January, 2022 by cschully

This is one of the oldest in the city; an earlier member of the Morrell dynasty helped install it. But it has not been repaired or updated to fit new traffic safety standards. It’s probably fine to walk. Don’t try a wheelchair or bike. Hopefully this old beauty will be fixed one day.

Dawson Creek Greenway

This is a scenic well maintained path but not really long enough for bike riding by itself. It does connect to other neighborhoods that will allow you to ride all throughout the south side of town.

This is a really nicely maintained and pretty path for locals to walk. The trail really isn't long enough for a decent bike ride by itself, but it does allow you to connect to neighborhoods that will lead to other places to ride in around town.

Baton Rouge Levee Bike Path

Great trail out of traffic

October, 2021 by wiliermdb

Trailink needs to update the info on this trail. As of 10/30/2021 the levee path runs north from L'auberge Casino in to downtown Baton Rouge. Path is fully paved for 12.5 miles one way. Once you're south of Brightside Dr. the walker, jogger traffic thins out and the only area to use caution is between the cattle crossings.

You can access the path from several locations. Parking at L'auberge Casino, Farr Park, LSU Vet School or downtown. You can add some miles and scenery by hopping off at the Vet School and take a spin through campus, around the lakes and back. Hit one of the restaurants across from the football stadium and then finish your ride.

Great for kids or those that don't want to deal with vehicle traffic.
