Tammany Trace

AWESOME TRAIL

April, 2022 by thejake91739

On a wet, March morning we braved the sprinkles and enjoyed as much of the Tammany Trace as we could before the full brunt of the storm hit later in the day. We got wet and had to modify our bike ride, but it did not dampen our admiration and enthusiasm for this awesome trail we traveled across the country from California to ride. This 5 star Rail Trail Hall of Fame trail absolutely lived up to its reputation!
The trail was smooth, flat, safe, quiet, and picturesque. If you enjoy long, straight, peaceful rides along tree covered trails accompanied by the sounds of birds, then this is the trail for you to ride, walk, or jog.
We loved our visit to Slidell and would highly recommend this trail as a road trip destination experience!

From the FOR WHAT IT'S WORTH DEPARTMENT: I noticed a couple of previous reviews mentioning the e-bikes being banned. One rider so ticked off he gave the trail just one star. We had several interactions with the trail ranger, and she had no problem with us (a couple of senior citizens) utilizing our quiet Swytch pedal assist systems. No throttle, no roar, no excessive speed. Too many e-bikes aren't bikes, they're motorcycles. I'm just sayin' . . .

Tammany Trace

Closure Update

March, 2022 by shoemakerma78

We rode the trail yesterday and found that the trail closure now extends from the Dove trailhead (south of I-12) all the way north to Robert Road (north of the Rt. 59 tunnel). This is due to I-12 widening construction as well as construction at the tunnel. The signs indicated closure as "indefinite" so watch for updates. We road Abita Springs to Covington trailhead and Dove Rd to Mandeville trailhead. Last week we road from Mandeville trailhead to the Bayou Lacomb draw bridge. Very nice rides. Also note that the rules of the trail do indicate "no electric or motorized vehicles" with no exception for e-bikes. We suspect this may be due to horses that share portions of the trail. This may also be the reason for another rule stating "No pets allowed". This is the first trail that we have encountered that does not allow pets.

Tammany Trace

Not nice to E-bikers.

February, 2022 by blainejarboe

Wow...All I can say is stay away from this trail if you have an ebike. Sadly, I encountered a ranger who insisted my ebike was a "motorized vehicle" and thus not allowed on the Tammany Trace. I was on a road trip and was looking forward to this trail, but left without even pedaling a single foot on the trail. So disappointed that some people are so misinformed about the laws regarding ebikes. Fortunately, I found less than an hour away some GREAT trails in Alabama. I highly recommend heading East and skipping this place.

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.

Tuxachanie National Recreation Trail

bridge is out

March, 2021 by mlrlet1125

We started at Hwy 49 and wanted to go as far as lake and turn back, but a little over 4 miles in the bridge was out and you couldn’t go further. Wish there had been a notice stating that. There is not a single bench to rest. Trail is well maintained and easy to navigate.

What a nice walk to end our trip!¿

October, 2020 by housanna_tl

Loved the tall pine trees. Trail was awesome!! We had time to only walk 6 miles. One of the best we’ve walked. Looking forward to coming back soon and walking the entire trail!!

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.

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!
