Tammany Trace

what a treasure

Kudos St. Tammany Parish for this beautiful and safe trail. What a treasure.

Covington construction

June, 2024 by maurgreen2020

Tried to start in Covington. Bridge out so had to ride around this on the busy highway. Otherwise trail in very good condition. A lot of cross roads that you have to slow down or stop for. Shaded for the most part. A lot of people on the trail which is nice to see

Beware of the downtown area. Very few drivers stopped for us in crosswalks. I also had one driver sharing the bike lane with me. If that bothers you, start at mile 5

great ride

March, 2024 by jeff.burroughs726

We rode Tammany trail from Neslo rd to Abita Springs 2/26/24. The surface is blacktop the entire way and in great condition, with the exception of a couple small spots. Ride is flat. There are several intersections with roads, but good visibility and almost no vehicle traffic. We had the trail pretty much to ourselves until we got to Mandeville, then some light bicycle and pedestrian traffic.

Well Kept Trail!

November, 2023 by 5ksfxdbcht

I have run this trail 3 days per week for 2 years and it’s the most peaceful & serene experience one could ever ask for. It encompasses the true Louisiana Swamp beauty! From the occasional gator sunbathing to the squirrels rustling through the pine needles for nuts. The large array of southern flowers will have your senses going haywire in a good way¿. As perfect as this sounds there are a couple things you’ll need to be aware of. 1. Pets are NOT allowed, but yet people still make their way on the trail and allow their pets to poop without picking it up. Sometimes the less than desirable drug addicts make a way to the trail. They won’t bother you, they’ll just move out of your way. And last but not least please be careful when crossing the intersections it’s a lot of them.

beautiful rural trail

November, 2023 by patty58050

This trail is awesomely maintained with beautiful rural America scenery. We rode from Hattiesburg to Prentiss and all the restrooms and water stations were open and clean. A must do rail trail, what a wonderful trail and a real asset to the communities it goes through.

Flat and straight

November, 2023 by arlene.deardorff

We rode from Mandeville to Covington round trip @28 miles. There are lots of street crossings but many have a 4 way stop. There isn’t much traffic at the crossings. There are 2 towns of interest , Abita and Covington. Other than those towns there isn’t much to look at. Trees are on both sides of the bike path so you do have shade. I like lots of scenery so this wasn’t my favorite trail.

Longleaf Trace

Shaded almost whole distance

October, 2023 by ltbike

The trail is very well-maintained and a good asphalt surface. Repaving just done from Hattiesburg and north. That part of the trail is lovely and scenic. We found the rest of it rather boring. No scenery other than trees and brush. Lots of shade. We rode by some rather sketchy places and there were some dogs running loose barking at us. All the trailhead restrooms are locked up in the northern 2/3 of trail. The towns are very small. The addresses on the trail website are not exact, but close by—just follow the brown signs. We were camped at Lake Jeff Davis at Prentiss.

Nice Ride!

June, 2023 by swgross

23 June 2023 - Sumrall to Carson Overall, this is a lovely place to ride. The trail is mostly covered with shade and offers scenic views of the Mississippi countryside. We enjoyed a serene ride with almost no traffic along the way. The trail is asphalt that is in fairly good repair. However, roots have bulged the trail in a few places and create rather large bumps. These are easy to dodge but are not well marked. There are bathroom stops at all the little towns but the Bassfield and Carson rest rooms were locked (this would have been a 5-star review otherwise). .

Longleaf Trace - 2 JUN 23

June, 2023 by 7s5a692x35

The Longleaf Trace is in the process in the near term to be paved in certain areas. See photos of a flyer stating to follow the Longleaf Trace’s Facebook page. Here is the latest posting:

Due to some weather delays on current projects the contractor was unable to start as we had hoped. A new project date has not been confirmed at this time. Sorry for any inconvenience and again we appreciate your understanding and patience throughout this process.We are excited to soon start repaving the Longleaf Trace from Hattiesburg to near Apostolic Road past the Sumrall Station. The repaving will be done in sections and we will update closures here on our Facebook page. On May 15th the trail will be CLOSED at the Hattiesburg Gateway to the 59 Overpass for repaving. Thank you all in advance for your patience during this process!

The trail is tree canopied for 98% of the trail as we started in Prentiss and finished up in Hattiesburg at the Southern Prohibition Brewing Co. Due to the tree cover causing shadows it was hard to see the rough trail conditions caused by tree roots causing asphalt heave even as they were marked by bright colored paint but the paint had faded over time. You need to stay focused on the trail versus sightseeing along the way.

There plenty of rest stops on the trail to include “rain stops” with overhead cover when you experience inclement weather while on the trail. The rain stops seemed to be located near the populated areas.

Mileage was marked with a mile maker every mile which is helpful if not using GPS.

Once they pave the areas needing attention, this will regain a 5 star status this Hall of Fame trail deserves again
