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!

Nice riding trail.

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.

Mississippi River Trail (Louisiana)

Great Ride

November, 2016 by crad94

In town for a bachelor party this weekend. While the crazies slept, I rode from Audubon Park to the end and back. Just under 52 miles...All the trail is paved and some recently updated... Solid trail to log some miles. The ride back sucked a little due to being into the wind, so keep that in mind!

this could be the start of a great friendship!

Brought my Brompton on the train to New Orleans to ride the Tammany Trace Trail but did not expect to be able to ride to the French Quarter from Metairie Road on a newly paved beautifully landscaped trail to the heart of the city. A great start to being bike friendly!

Serenaded by the vast amphibian life and the views were spectacular, too. Great place to escape from the hustle and bustle of life... Even if just for a couple hours. If you're a reader or looking for a quiet place to meditate, take the walk to the end of the trail and enjoy the open air.

Mississippi River Trail (Louisiana)

Awesome Trail

May, 2015 by arkansasflash

Rode the river levee trail yesterday. There are two sections of it that are closed. One is easy to navigate around and is short. The second is longer and you'll end up walking your bike. The plantations are amazing. Great views of the Mississippi River. Tandyou'll have to

Mississippi River Trail (Louisiana)

perfect bike path

September, 2014 by jvanpelt

The trail extends from the Audubon Zoo parking lot all the way to the Bonnet Carre Spillway, a total of around 25 miles. It's a great trail, although as ckelleher0 mentioned there is little shade. However, I am a cyclist and find that it is perfect for early morning or evening training rides. There are a few service roads that cross the path, but they are rare and bikers / pedestrians have the right-of-way. It is sooo nice not to have such a stretch of bike trail with absolutely no concern for traffic.

There are plenty of places along River Rd to stop for a break or to refill your water bottles.

The levee construction is definitely a hindrance, but it is due to be complete by the end of 2015, I believe. Check out these two links for more information: http://bit.ly/1rw4mtj and http://bit.ly/1q8zXG8

However, even with the construction there is currently about 20 miles of continuous path open (as of 9/14) in Jefferson and St Charles Parishes.
