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.
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.
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.
Rode the trail in Laplace and then south from the spillway.
Nice and smooth in most areas. Great way to ride

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