TT x 2

November, 2018 by koldtoess

Finally…….after months of trying to get down to Southern LA, we enjoyed our best overall rails to trails experience. Not that the TT is the best trail (great surface, clean restrooms, good security and frequent trailheads) rather it’s the whole package; great local restaurants, Lake Pontchartrain, Fontainebleau S.P., water splash pads, Abita Brewery, community fairs (Mandeville on Saturday & Abita Springs on Sunday), drive-thru daiquiris and the IMAX theater at Slidell.

Due to the impromptu nature of our trip, we had to stay in a motel in North Slidell, decent & inexpensive. We planned to tent camp at Fontainebleau or rent a B&B in Mandeville but everything was booked. The east terminus was easy to find but you will have to park across Gause Blvd. at the shopping centers if you don’t park at the trailhead. The trail is pine tree lined with a lot of crossing that will moderate your speed. Eventually, you reach the picturesque, rolling bascule bridge over Bayou Lacombe (bridge hours vary). We arrived at Fontainebleau ($3 entrance fee) to relax at the lake/beach/pier and roll through the campsites all under majestic live oaks, approx. 32 miles round trip.

The following day we drove to Abita Springs to ride the western half. First, we rode to the western terminus at Covington and turned around at the statue of Ronaldus Magnus and returned to Fontainebleau. When passing Mandeville, we explored the harbor area and rode along Lakeshore drive. Upon returning to Abita Springs, approx. 35 miles round trip, we partook of post ride refreshments at the brewery, free beer tokens come with the tour! We are definitely planning to return in the very near future; “laissez les bon temp rouler.”

Nice Ride on the Trace

June, 2018 by kevinkaren

Rode the eastern half of the trail, parking in Slidell. Big parking lot, restroom building, visitor's log. Dead flat trail (what else would you expect in the bayou?), wide, smooth, scenic, with a very rural feel and few road crossings. Talked with the trail manager at the lift bridge, which itself was a neat attraction. Turned around at Fontainbleu State Park for a 25 mile round-trip. The trail crosses the entry road with no trailside facilities, rather than traverse the park.

I would have liked to see another developed trailhead with full facilities; about every 5 miles is ideal. While in Covington I drove by that trailhead. The western half of the trail seems to get more urban, and I would expect to see a higher concentration of street crossings. Next time I'm in the area I will probably ride this trail again, and explore further west from Fontainbleu.

Crescent Park Trail

Perfect name

April, 2018 by mml.bourgeois

The park is too short is my only complaint😀. Fantastic views of the crescent on river. Great landscaping. Nice morning ride.

Lafitte Greenway

Key link in NOLA

April, 2018 by trailsforall

Rode this trail on a beautiful and warm (sunny, 75 degree F) day in late April 2018. I was staying on Canal Street for a conference, and grabbed a Blue Bike (NOLA's bikeshare system) right outside my hotel and rode through the French Quarter, connecting with the trail on St Louis Avenue at Basin Avenue. At a little over two miles, the trail is short - but it connects a decent network of bike lanes and bike sharrows on city streets, with the beautiful City Park. This is an urban trail - so don't think you'll be riding in the quiet country. However, the trail includes native flowers, parkland, recreation amenities (a neighborhood pool and playground) - and for most of its route it is a very relaxing place to ride. It also passes under an elevated section of Interstate 10. Along the route are several at-grade crossing with city streets. Most include push-button actuated flashing beacons. I found the drivers were very courteous, and quickly stopped to let me cross. The trail traverses neighborhoods that are strongly rebounding - lots of new residential construction. Shortly after crossing N Carollton Avenue, there is a new grocery store (Winn-Dixie) and shopping center immediately adjacent to the trail. Check it out!

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

April, 2017 by nobibi01

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.

Rode from the zoo to the spillway and back. Really nice ride with no stopping. Total of 54.2 miles round trip. There is good parking next to the zoo. There is a bathroom about 16 miles north from the start.
