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.

Longleaf Trace

Beware of the downtown area. Very few drivers stopped for us in crosswalks. I also had one driver sharing the bike lane with me. If that bothers you, start at mile 5

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

beautiful rural trail

November, 2023 by patty58050

This trail is awesomely maintained with beautiful rural America scenery. We rode from Hattiesburg to Prentiss and all the restrooms and water stations were open and clean. A must do rail trail, what a wonderful trail and a real asset to the communities it goes through.

Longleaf Trace

Shaded almost whole distance

October, 2023 by ltbike

The trail is very well-maintained and a good asphalt surface. Repaving just done from Hattiesburg and north. That part of the trail is lovely and scenic. We found the rest of it rather boring. No scenery other than trees and brush. Lots of shade. We rode by some rather sketchy places and there were some dogs running loose barking at us. All the trailhead restrooms are locked up in the northern 2/3 of trail. The towns are very small. The addresses on the trail website are not exact, but close by—just follow the brown signs. We were camped at Lake Jeff Davis at Prentiss.

Nice Ride!

June, 2023 by swgross

23 June 2023 - Sumrall to Carson Overall, this is a lovely place to ride. The trail is mostly covered with shade and offers scenic views of the Mississippi countryside. We enjoyed a serene ride with almost no traffic along the way. The trail is asphalt that is in fairly good repair. However, roots have bulged the trail in a few places and create rather large bumps. These are easy to dodge but are not well marked. There are bathroom stops at all the little towns but the Bassfield and Carson rest rooms were locked (this would have been a 5-star review otherwise). .

Longleaf Trace - 2 JUN 23

June, 2023 by 7s5a692x35

The Longleaf Trace is in the process in the near term to be paved in certain areas. See photos of a flyer stating to follow the Longleaf Trace’s Facebook page. Here is the latest posting:

Due to some weather delays on current projects the contractor was unable to start as we had hoped. A new project date has not been confirmed at this time. Sorry for any inconvenience and again we appreciate your understanding and patience throughout this process.We are excited to soon start repaving the Longleaf Trace from Hattiesburg to near Apostolic Road past the Sumrall Station. The repaving will be done in sections and we will update closures here on our Facebook page. On May 15th the trail will be CLOSED at the Hattiesburg Gateway to the 59 Overpass for repaving. Thank you all in advance for your patience during this process!

The trail is tree canopied for 98% of the trail as we started in Prentiss and finished up in Hattiesburg at the Southern Prohibition Brewing Co. Due to the tree cover causing shadows it was hard to see the rough trail conditions caused by tree roots causing asphalt heave even as they were marked by bright colored paint but the paint had faded over time. You need to stay focused on the trail versus sightseeing along the way.

There plenty of rest stops on the trail to include “rain stops” with overhead cover when you experience inclement weather while on the trail. The rain stops seemed to be located near the populated areas.

Mileage was marked with a mile maker every mile which is helpful if not using GPS.

Once they pave the areas needing attention, this will regain a 5 star status this Hall of Fame trail deserves again

Great Trail

May, 2023 by eguydjr

We road round trip from Jackson Station 2x. First to Eply & 2 weeks later to Sumral.
Enjoyed every Minute. There are a few rough patches, in broad day light easy to see, but second ride was late evening & shadows were low, not enough to cause a problem but a surprise.
Over all, Ill do it again next time I come this way.

What a Lovely Trail

April, 2023 by gary.heissler_tl

Got on the trail at Sumrall and rode north 19 miles to Carson. It was a scenic, country ride on a asphalt trail that was in good condition. We rode mdi-week so basically had the trail to ourselves. There were designated rest areas along the trail with flush bathrooms at Bassfield and Douglas trailheads. We will definitely do this trail again when we’re in the area!

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.
