Trail Therapy

January, 2018 by rozaskevin

Woke up by 0600. I ate 3 eggs with spinach, finished it with a nice up of coffee. I started trail by 0945. The route from the trail head to lake airey was good. Got to lake airey and had a 30 minute lunch. Got back on trail by 1200. The first few miles towards POW lake were flat and easy at about the 11.5 miles it will get dense but nothing hard. The trail will go from 4 feet wide to about a foot wide. After the 12 mile marker, just know you will need to hike about .7 miles untill POW.. It was a great trail and worth every step

Heaven!

What an amazing trail! We sailed along on this flat paved partially-shaded surface loved every minute until I got a migraine and had to stop after only seven miles. 😞 Plan to try again tomorrow.

(Long)leaf Trace

1st time, long distances riding, picked a good trail to start. We found it to be very nice, wide, clean and shaded for a sunny day, I was concerned about not being able to use the restroom, well you do have plenty places to stop with the right facilities. Highly recommended! Lots of places to stop, sit and stretch, along the trace. We enjoyed the streams, squirrels and the turtle pond @ marker 13.

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.

Tuxachanie National Recreation Trail

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.

Tammany Trace

Great time

October, 2016 by your_leaf_man

Did the whole trail Covington to Slidell and back. There were plenty of fun stops along the way

Tammany Trace

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
