Tanglefoot Trail

New gateway at Ponotoc!

September, 2016 by SoFlaKettwiesel

Our second time on the Tanglefoot trail found many improvements! The gateway at Ponotoc has restrooms, picnic tables under cover, beautiful landscaping to make this a first class Trail Head.
Parking just to the north as before.
New Albany gateway now all paved with many restaurants nearby.
Whistle Stops along the trail ideal for recreational riders to ride all the sections of the trail over several says.

Tanglefoot Trail

Smooth sailing

March, 2016 by mkavkewitz_tl

Drove from Chattanooga to Houston, MS and biked to New Albany, stayed at nearby Hampton Inn and road back yesterday. The Houston Trailhead is not finished and the Sheriffs department discourages overnight parking. Thus, we parked at a nearby grocery store which had a big back lot with permission. The trail is very well maintained, and is flat. It goes through rural northeast Ms. passing through a few towns. In the 43.6 miles on Sunday we passed 8-10 bikers and about the same number of walkers. On our way back Monday 2 or 3 bikers and walkers, so we had the trail to ourselves on sunny 60 degree days. Some wild life, farm animals, open fields and long tree lined sections. Not spectacular but a very pleasant peaceful ride.

Tanglefoot Trail

Great Time!

Wonderful experience. Great trail. Rest stops, bathrooms, stores, diners everything! I'm already looking forward to a return trip.

Tanglefoot Trail

Great Trail

November, 2015 by tandysm

Beautiful scenery rolling past woods and open fields. Nice rest stops with restrooms and water every 6-8 miles, travels through several lovely towns with snack/meals options available. Great lunch @ Fat Lueys in New Albany at the turn around. Trail is fairly flat, suitable for all rising levels.

Tanglefoot Trail

Very nice trail

October, 2015 by pauldowney

We usually ride out from the New Albany trail head at the north end of the Tanglefoot Trail. Nice, easy trail to ride, level and well-maintained. There's several good shops near the New Albany trail head, notably Trails-n-Treads Bike Shop, AC's Coffee Shop and the Sweet Frog frozen yogurt & iced cream shop. There's a number of whistle stops along the trail every 6 - 8 miles, with picnic tables, bike racks, lavatories and drinking fountains.

Lots of hardwood trees and farm fields adjacent to the trail, very scenic.

The trail is 43.6 miles from New Albany in the north, through Pontotoc in the middle and down to Houston at the south trail head. Enjoy your ride along the Tanglefoot Trail in north Mississippi!

Tanglefoot Trail

A Great Ride!

September, 2015 by caroljeicher

My husband and I rode half of the trail out and back last week starting in New Albany. Great trail. Well kept and very clean. Love how the trail supporters were recognized on markers along the way. We stayed at the Bridges-Hall Manor (a trail supporter)in Houston that night. What a delight! Don't miss staying there if you are in the area. Hostess Carol is great and breakfast is yummy!

Tanglefoot Trail

Tanglefoot, up and back

September, 2015 by tslaw

My brother-in-law and I rode Houston to New Albany and back on Sunday, September 20, 2015. I found the trail to be just as much fun as the Long Leaf Trace for riding. There is not as much scenery if you want to sightsee on your ride, but I found it to be outstanding. Whistle stops were great, and there are stores and eateries within view along the trail if needed.

We met many locals out enjoying the trail, and all were friendly and eager to tell us about the area.

One minor complaint is the roughness of the bridges. Man, there are a lot of bridges. The wood decking was so uneven that it was impossible to find a comfortable way to cross them. One had some steel decking over the wood - it was the worst. I'm sure building so many bridges was a huge expense in the budget.

I also felt that overall the trail was flatter than the Long Leaf which might make it easier for recreational riders, like me.

I loved it. I will be back.


Tanglefoot Trail

A true gem in Mississippi

September, 2015 by bentrider4life

My wife and I rode from the trailhead in New Albany to Pontotoc 9/19/15. Plenty of parking was available. The surface of the trail was fantastic, the right of ways very well kept, all the facilities were clean. After two years you can tell the trail if being well cared for. There were several other riders, joggers and walkers, everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. The grades are so gradual that even inexperienced riders should have no trouble at all. We happened to be in Pontotoc during Bodock festival which was a nice diversion. On the return trip we stopped in Ecru and McCoy's grocery which was a block off the trail and a great place to stock up on water and snacks. There are plenty of places to stop and rest and the shady spots made for a very enjoyable ride. All together we did 39 miles, made a day of it, and had a great time.

Tanglefoot Trail

Second Best Trail in Mississippi

September, 2015 by OldTerry

Road the trail from New Houlka to the southern terminus on Monday, September 14, 2015. I like this trail because of the long, flat straight shots and the good condition of the trail surface. I ride mostly for exercise purposes and the Tanglefoot Trail fills the bill very well. I would not say there is a lot of special scenery to view and for that reason my wife is somewhat indifferent about this trail. The Longleaf Trace in Hattiesburg is a better trail for sight seeing purposes.
