Tammany Trace

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.

Pontchartrain Lakefront Trail

Great Trail

August, 2020 by danlortie

Probably the nicest trail in Metro NOLA but absolutely no shade anywhere along the way. Riding alongside lake Ponchatrain makes for a very scenic ride. A little tough in middle of summer, probably much nicer in the fall. Tammany Trace is probably better in summer because it’s mainly shady. Looking forward to riding when the weather gets cooler. Enjoy.

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.

Mississippi River Trail (Louisiana)

Flat, paved, separated from traffic, scenic views

February, 2020 by jkhiser

We rode on 2/1/2020. Original plan was to start at Audubon Park, but was a big traffic backup heading that way. Turned around and parked at Jefferson Park and rode east toward Audubon Park. Plenty of parking on both sides of the road at Jefferson midmorning on cool Saturday.

Nice views over river, mostly flat, with occasional changes from top to bottom of the levee. Steady stream of walkers and bikers, but was not overly crowded. Occasional service road crossings, and one interesting spot were a small number of houses over the river share the bike path as their driveway.

There are many miles to the west that we did not explore due to the stiff wind. As a bonus, some nice restaurants nearby on Oak Street to refuel.

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!

Tammany Trace

3-Day Bikecamping trip

August, 2019 by tommylux56

Pleasant 3-day trip starting in Covington to Fontainbleau State Park campsite. Trips from there both ways to Slidell, Mandeville, and Abita Springs. Ate a lot of meals in Mandeville which were very enjoyable. The ride to see the old oaks along Lakeshore Dr. is a must. Nice trailheads.

Roller Blading the Trace

August, 2019 by pawgigi7

Best roller blading is from Covington (Harbor Freight) to Mandeville Trail head, be careful at the crossings. Do not cross 190 into old Covington it isn’t paved and is very difficult on roller blades. Also it is hard blading from Fontainebleau State Park to Slidell due to the old asphalt, very rough and fatiguing on the feet.

Tammany Trace

flat

April, 2019 by rraines1223

Trail was very well maintained and pretty much flat with no turns. Only complaint would be no markings along the trail at all. You better have a map or you’ll be wondering where you are and missing lots of sights.

Tammany Trace

No Pets Allowed

April, 2019 by marinereef

It should really be noted somewhere that pets are not permitted on the trail. It was rather disappointing to get off the highway, find somewhere to park my RV, and walk down to the trail, only to find that I could not walk my dog.

Tammany Trace

In the rain....

January, 2019 by pjklim

Stayed in Fontainebleau State Park for a couple of days and rode the Trace to Slidell on January 1st 2019 in miserable weather. Got soaked, returned to the State Park for a change of clothing and continued to ride towards Covington. Didn't realize how early darkness would set in though, not being local and had to turn around at I12. Unfortunately I had to leave the next day. Well, going all the way next time, hopefully this spring. Loved the beautiful Trace.
