Tanglefoot Trail

Favorite Trail

June, 2018 by annreply50

My brother and I do nothing but rails to trails. We have done at least 10 different ones and this is our favorite. Though it's a 5 hour drive, we go at least twice a year. Trail is incredible, SHADY, well maintained, and each trailhead has a great restroom and some type of restaurant. They even have tire repair stations for flats . This is a FIRST CLASS trail.

Whistle Stop in Houston!

May, 2018 by augustwalk

It's Memorial Day 2018 and I'm sitting here in the brand spanking new Whistle Stop in Houston. Finally! Years in the making. Much appreciated. It's great and huge, as Whistle Stops go. And nearby there's also a large shelter.

I used to not really want to come here because there was no place to take a break. Now, as the Glen Campbell song said, Houston, I'm coming to see you. No more saying, Houston, we have a problem.

See photos.

Made trip from Fl. to Ms and Al to do 3 trails. This trail was great, smooth pavement clean restrooms at the "Whistle Stops" Several cute towns along the way, not many restaurants close to the trail until New Albany. We spent several days and did round trips, safe parking at each site, got warm later in day but had a lot of shade. We used the Library in New Albany for parking our last day, very friendly and helpful staff. Nice bridge over the street to the end in downtown New Albany, outside courtyard with tables but the shops and restaurants closed the day we were there. Trail was worth the trip and I would put it on anyone's bucket list.

Tanglefoot Trail

Beware of dogs!

April, 2018 by marshagot

I spent 2 days of a planned 5 day trip on this trail. Day 1 started from the Houston, MS end and found this end of the trail poorly maintained for about 10 miles-there were branches and dead limbs everywhere. At about mile 6 or 7 I had 2 aggresive dogs chase me from a house adjacent to the trail. I continued on and after 10miles found the scenery and ride pleasant. On day 2, I started from New Albany and rode down. Beautiful and peaceful ride esp through Pontotoc which had a nice rest area. When i got to mile 18, I had 2 really nasty dogs chase me to the point where I was frightened. I went down to mile 15 and had 2 more dogs barking threateningly from a yard. I was afraid to ride back until one of the trail patrols came by. When I explained what happened he offered to ride me back through those areas and told me has complained about the dogs @ 18mile mark before. If you want people to use this trail it needs to be safe and dogs in the area should be pinned up or leashed. I won't be back to this rail trail!

3/2018

April, 2018 by onestep1964

started from the northern end and only covered 18 miles, cool and windy ( 45* and SE at 10-15).
VERY nice trail ( along with the longleaf). nice to see that its been around for awhile. great stops just about every 10 miles or less, you're never away from support if you should need it .
Only complaint is the wooden bridges, if you're cranking along at a good speed , they can rattle your ride. I've been on worse, and if this is the only complaint- well we're not doing bad. I will definitely be back again- superb ride.

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.

Great Time!

February, 2016 by mcintyrefamily

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

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.
