Great "winter" ride on the Trace!

February, 2017 by ramlamson

Enjoyed a great round trip ride on the Trace! The trail is very well maintained and regularly monitored. I did have a hard time finding anyone in the Trailhead centers even though I was there during open hours. No biggie, very enjoyable ride. Note that there's a bike shop at the Covington end and about midway.

Good trail

December, 2016 by kalebraybon

This is a very easy trail but a good scenic trail. Get to look at a lot of different types of nature, ponds, lakes, and a POW camp. Flat trail that makes the higher mileage easier for newer hikers.

Nice ride on Tammany Trace. A Great Trail.

November, 2016 by jduffy3124

We had great fall weather for our ride today. The leaves are turning and the sky is blue. We started at the SE end at the Slidell trailhead. Staff was on the trail and at bridge over bayou near St.Tammany Parish trailhead (which closes @5:06pm) The trail is well maintained and is well used by the community. One ranger we spoke to has met people from all over the world traveling the trail. The trails website and this site give accurate descriptions of the trail. There are a lot of things to do along the trail and facilities are available. Be sure to leave the trail to visit or camp at Fontainebleau State Park. Mandeville has some beautiful sites to see. We had lunch in Abita and turned around for the return trip today. We've visited the Covington trailhead and the bike shop right on the trail previously, and I can say you will enjoy that end as well.

Tammany Trace

An Excellent Trail

October, 2016 by gzymmb

Rode this trail from the Koop Dr. trailhead north for about 7 miles. Flat, straight ( in this section ), and well-maintained made this a pleasure to ride upon.

Great time

Excellent ride.....

August, 2016 by fishallday

Being from Louisiana but now living on the coast of Mississippi, I would suggest doing this ride in the fall or winter because of the heat and humidity in our deep south summers. If you do shorter rides, you can manage but you have to be able to handle the temps. Lots of beautiful trees and wildlife to view. Cool places to stop and get a bite/beer. Flat surfaces, no hills, clean. You will not be disappointed....

I am writing to share a wonderful experience I recently had on your Rails to Trail during a vacation to Mandeville from Raymond, Mississippi. My husband and I have recently taken up biking as a hobby that provides both leisure and exercise to ward off at least some of the unfortunate side effects of aging.

On what turned out to be one of the hottest days of the year, we lit out on your trails to enjoy a few hours of riding in a new environment. We were amazed at the size of the rabbits, the lovely landscape and the overall quality of the trail infrastructure; however, the most noted aspect of the ride was the blistering, relentless HEAT. About 28 miles into the ride I began to have a headache, blurry vision and nausea due to the heat. My husband was not concerned and encouraged me to press on to shady spots for breaks as he was not so affected by the heat. On our third break after the turnaround point, I told him to call 9-1-1. About the time I thought I would pass out due to heat exhaustion, two rangers, CJ and Allen, appeared to literally save my day!

They pulled out ice cold water and called a cab for me to take me back to the inn where I was staying. They loaded my husband’s bike in the cab and called ahead to the next ranger on the trail to have water ready for my husband who would complete the ride back on my bike. Were it not for the serendipitous timing and preparation of these rangers, I would likely have been hospitalized. Instead, I was able to enjoy a sno cone compliments of my cab driver, Mo, and make my dinner reservation later that same day.

I understand that governments face increasing economic pressure to meet many competing demands. I hope this letter serves as an endorsement for the wonderful rangers and trail program that you have established. I will continue to visit your parish and trails and promote both as a place where one can experience leisure, natural beauty and wonderful Southern hospitality. I hope you will recognize the excellent service of CJ and Allen and continue to offer these wonderful experiences to St. Tammany natives and visitors alike.

With gratitude,

Betsy Crook

Great trail with lots of shade!

June, 2016 by robindeawaugh

One day we rode from Covington trailhead to Mandeville trailhead and back (about 25 miles). Lots of pretty scenery, shade, and other interests, like Abita Springs, bridges, playground, and a tunnel. There's a restaurant within 2 blocks of the Covington trailhead that is really good, too! (Mattina Bella) Another day we rode from Mandeville to Slidell. Had problems at the beginning so we went into Mandeville and found a store, The Bike Path, to help us. Great service from them and we were back on the trail in no time! This section was more remote. We saw a beautiful area full of blooming lilypads and also enjoyed checking out the Lacombe drawbridge. There are a few picnic tables along the way and most are maintained well. Loved this even in the heat of summer - my advice is go early in the morning!

Tuxachanie National Recreation Trail

Good trail for beginning hikers

May, 2016 by maxpearl

This is a great trail for beginners. It is well marked and fairly flat. If you park a car at Airey Lake and ride in a second car to the Highway 49 trailhead, the roughly 6 mile walk is fairly nice. I have hiked it one way (6.2 miles) or roundtrip from Airey Lake to Highway 49 and back (12.4 miles) or the long hike from Highway 49 to Airey Lake to the POW Camp. Sometimes the long route is not well marked, so you have to figure out which way to go, but as hikes go, it's nice, but long. As someone else said, you need to bring plenty of water for these hikes, as there is not a supply except a couple of spots. Also, South Mississippi can get incredibly hot midday till late afternoon. I recommend starting very early in the morning. Parts of the trail have no canopy, so you are in full sunlight.

This is a pine forest trail. It is well marked and clean. We at lunch by a stream. It has a few hills and some roots, but it is really a well maintained trail.
