Wisner Trail

Meandering waterside delight with minimal elevations

July, 2021 by tgcomputers

Do you like waterways? Trees and greenery? Wide open spaces? Protected traffic crossings? The Wisner Trail rolls all these together in a relaxed park setting that affords cyclists a safe, well-shaded and fun winding path connecting the Esplanade Ridge with the New Orleans Lakefront.
Expect to pass very few (if any, especially while raining) other trail users on this relatively new two-way gem, but when you do, note the mix of roller bladers, walkers, joggers, and fellow bike riders. During inclement weather, be alert for low-hanging branches and possibly slipper conditions on the tighter turns.
Your only elevation happens along the newly constructed I-610 overpass, but it passes quickly and your traversal is 100% separated from moving vehicles. Enjoy the view as, at 20+ feet, you'll be atop one of the taller points for miles around.
Descending in either direction affords you the opportunity to branch off along minor trails leading into City Park, while the trail heads invite you onto roadside paths shooting out along Esplanade and points south, or via surface streets to Lakeshore Drive and points north/west.
Bring along a picnic lunch or fishing pole if you have time to sojourn along Bayou St. John, where boaters and paddle boarders frequent. If you're looking for more adventure, cruise the Big Lagoon next to the New Orleans Museum of Art and/or take a turn with the rented canoes or paddle boats. (They also offer cabana bikes by the hour.)

Tammany Trace

Time on the Tammany

May, 2021 by dustonm

Great trail! Safe, easy, nicely paved. Lots of wildlife. Stay in Mandeville at Harbor Landing Cottage. Great Place! Close to trail and lake. Fun trail and other great things to do.

Tammany Trace

Just Excellent

March, 2021 by brannonlberry

Clean. Safe. Security throughout trail. Endless communities to stop in, especially Abita Springs. 100 out of 100 for Tammany Trace. One thing - construction has trail between Dove trailhead and Koop Drive trailhead. So park at Koop Drive trailhead if want to go north on trail to Abita Springs brewery, etc.

Pontchartrain Lakefront Trail

Great Trail

August, 2020 by danlortie

Probably the nicest trail in Metro NOLA but absolutely no shade anywhere along the way. Riding alongside lake Ponchatrain makes for a very scenic ride. A little tough in middle of summer, probably much nicer in the fall. Tammany Trace is probably better in summer because it’s mainly shady. Looking forward to riding when the weather gets cooler. Enjoy.

Tammany Trace

Beautiful ride

February, 2020 by inn8n8

Wonderfully flat, we rode from the Koop road trailhead (lots of parking) to the end in Slidell. LOTS or road crossings but the locals err on the side of caution and most stop even when not required. Round trip was more than 40 miles and every mile is beautiful. Cool drawbridge that we crossed and then got to watch operate for a boat heading upstream. The rest benches are plentiful at first but thin out further on.

Mississippi River Trail (Louisiana)

Flat, paved, separated from traffic, scenic views

February, 2020 by jkhiser

We rode on 2/1/2020. Original plan was to start at Audubon Park, but was a big traffic backup heading that way. Turned around and parked at Jefferson Park and rode east toward Audubon Park. Plenty of parking on both sides of the road at Jefferson midmorning on cool Saturday.

Nice views over river, mostly flat, with occasional changes from top to bottom of the levee. Steady stream of walkers and bikers, but was not overly crowded. Occasional service road crossings, and one interesting spot were a small number of houses over the river share the bike path as their driveway.

There are many miles to the west that we did not explore due to the stiff wind. As a bonus, some nice restaurants nearby on Oak Street to refuel.

Tammany Trace

My Favorite Rail Trail

September, 2019 by tommyrunnels51

Rode this trail 27 miles from Slidell to Covington to take advantage of prevailing winds. Trail is very flat, mostly tree lined, in good condition, and very scenic. There are many streets/roads to cross...be careful!

Tammany Trace

3-Day Bikecamping trip

August, 2019 by tommylux56

Pleasant 3-day trip starting in Covington to Fontainbleau State Park campsite. Trips from there both ways to Slidell, Mandeville, and Abita Springs. Ate a lot of meals in Mandeville which were very enjoyable. The ride to see the old oaks along Lakeshore Dr. is a must. Nice trailheads.

Tammany Trace

Roller Blading the Trace

August, 2019 by pawgigi7

Best roller blading is from Covington (Harbor Freight) to Mandeville Trail head, be careful at the crossings. Do not cross 190 into old Covington it isn’t paved and is very difficult on roller blades. Also it is hard blading from Fontainebleau State Park to Slidell due to the old asphalt, very rough and fatiguing on the feet.
