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!
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.
Ride on 4/1/17. Great trail...but the wooden bridges are a little rough.
We had a great time! It is a good trail for people of all ages and abilities. There were also some beautiful views!
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.
Just a fantastic trail ride , always lots of folks riding and almost always meet a deputy patrolling.
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.
Wonderful experience. Great trail. Rest stops, bathrooms, stores, diners everything! I'm already looking forward to a return trip.
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.
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!
This site states that the trail is 1.6 miles, but the overall TVA Muscle Shoals Reservation Trail is approx. 12.5 miles for paved, dedicated bike/walk. The trail rambles between deep forested sections, century old engineering marvels, grand vistas and amazing grasslands. It varies enough to allow you to determine your ride; multiple loops, yo-yos, elevation challenges, road and side trials with multiple entry points on both sides of the Tennessee River and restrooms on both the Florence and TVA (mid-trail) sides.
I started at the Marriot Shoals hotel and rode south over Wilson Dam. The east side Muscle Shoals trailhead starts at a small parking lot; turn right off Wilson Dam Hwy. (WDH) past the large array of transformers/transmission towers right after the dam. You will think that you are headed toward a restricted area, but will turn left prior. The trail winds through the TVA property before crossing underneath Hwy. 157/The Singing Bridge. At the intersection, there is a sign that states “End Bike Route” but there is a paved trail that merges onto the bridge, east side, via a 7’ wide wire-cage covered walkway to the Florence trailhead and mini-park. If you look on a satellite map, there is a gravel path back to the Marriot but it was too overgrown to transverse. Returning back to the trail at Hwy. 157, there is a right-turn down a park road that leads to a pavilion with a gorgeous overlook. Again, returning to the trail, you will hit the TVA trailhead next which splits the trail into a loop. Both of these trails will take you to the double-decker bridge. There is no signage, but if you keep dropping in elevation you will hit the bridge. The old bridge is the capstone of the trail. You can ride the wood deck bridge until it stops above Patton Island at the panty tree, you’ll see. To get to the west side Muscle Shoals trailhead at the bridge, you will need to drive through the parking lot of Oral & Facial Surgery Center. In addition to the bike/walk paths, there are a couple of side hiking trails to both the bluff and the river. To vary your ride, I did a little road riding along the WDH which feels very safe due to sparse traffic on the weekends. I completed almost 30 miles and looped back to the dam without seeming to ride the same trail twice.
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!
