Chisha Foka Multi-Use Trail

Cyclist use caution

June, 2024 by runer4jc

On a bike, the pavement is dangerous in many places. Some holes and bumps are difficult to see. Use caution. Needs repaving soon. Fine for running and walking.

Chisha Foka Multi-Use Trail

Agree with the other posts. The trail has some dangerous ruts, not from lack of maintenance but weather related.

Pleasant ride but use caution

March, 2023 by donaldhuffman_tl

We rode this slightly rolling terrain, pleasant trail up and back from end to end along the Natchez Trail Parkway. The trail is aphalted all the way -- but use caution as sections of the trail have deep holes in the asphalt. Trail ends abruptly at a road block at the west end and at the 50 sq mile Ross Barnett Reservoir at the east. (at the west end it appears that there may be plans for extending the trail as evidenced stakes and flagging extending from the road block) There were no picnic tables at the reservoir dam-vista area but there is a park with shelters and tables less than a mile southwest just off and visible from the trail where we ate our lunch. Overall, a very pleasing ride as we took a break from our drive on I-20 through the Jackson, Ms area.

Chisha Foka Multi-Use Trail

Safe

January, 2023 by rosieannriley

I have used this trail since returning home 7 years ago and I am honestly happy that it exist. This is the longest trail in central MS which is pretty sad but better than nothing. I have walked, jogged and cycled and have never had any issues. They have repaired sections of trail but it’s still not up to the standards of Longleaf and Tanglefoot trails. But better than nothing. I generally park midway and ride towards Clinton because it’s always congested on the side near reservoir. generally stay on the end going towards Clinton.

Chisha Foka Multi-Use Trail

Nice trail

October, 2022 by vc2019

With curves and hills and pavement the entire length. Heed the signs about uneven pavement around miles 4-6. There are some large crevices on the hills that could make a bad day for bikers and walkers.

Chisha Foka Multi-Use Trail

Great trail with excellent parking

August, 2022 by rlsmith4602

We love this trail and use the parking/access area just west of Hwy 55 on the Natchez Trace. This happens to be about the 1/2 way point. We ride out to the Reservoir and then back to the truck to re-water and then do the other 1/2 to the west. Works out great for us!

Spillway Road Multi-Use Trail

Part of a GREAT trail loop!

May, 2021 by michaeljechols

I regularly ride this section of trail as part of a 11.25 mile loop that travels along multi-use paths and bike lanes that will carry you along a complete loop of Pelahatchie Bay and over the Causeway. This is an enjoyable loop with several hundred feet of elevation changes to make it interesting.

Pear Orchard Road Multi-Use Trail

Nice multi-use trail along Pear Orchard Rd..

May, 2021 by michaeljechols

On one end it connects to the Trace Trail which is nice.

great multi use trail

Awesome asphalt paved trail along the Natchez trace!

Chisha Foka Multi-Use Trail

A very nice trail.

July, 2020 by kd5dhr

We really enjoy this path. The scenery is great and it seems to be well maintained. There are a few places where the paved path surface is broken up, but it’s not bad yet. Be careful, I saw a couple of spandex bicycle riders going too fast for this trail. Also, women walking alone should be alert. I’ve noticed creepy guys out here a couple times.

Chisha Foka Multi-Use Trail

Weekend ride

July, 2015 by jvperret

My wife and I spent the weekend in Ridgeland, staying at the Hyatt located where I-55 crosses the Natchez Trace Parkway. We rode from the Reservoir overlook (eastern end of the bike trail) to I-55 and back on Friday, and then from I-55 to the western end of the trail and back on Saturday. The city of Ridgeland (I assume) is constructing an asphalt path along the west side of Highland Colony Parkway that connects to this trail at its midpoint just west of I-55. Nearly complete as of July 2015. This spur path makes for easy access between the trail and the hotels and businesses along Highland Colony Parkway. Really nice ride; the trail is smooth, well-maintained, even if it was a bit hilly for these old legs. Stay alert and you may be rewarded with a deer sighting. We really enjoyed it.
