Tammany Trace

what a treasure

Kudos St. Tammany Parish for this beautiful and safe trail. What a treasure.

Covington construction

June, 2024 by maurgreen2020

Tried to start in Covington. Bridge out so had to ride around this on the busy highway. Otherwise trail in very good condition. A lot of cross roads that you have to slow down or stop for. Shaded for the most part. A lot of people on the trail which is nice to see

Tammany Trace

great ride

March, 2024 by jeff.burroughs726

We rode Tammany trail from Neslo rd to Abita Springs 2/26/24. The surface is blacktop the entire way and in great condition, with the exception of a couple small spots. Ride is flat. There are several intersections with roads, but good visibility and almost no vehicle traffic. We had the trail pretty much to ourselves until we got to Mandeville, then some light bicycle and pedestrian traffic.

Well Kept Trail!

November, 2023 by 5ksfxdbcht

I have run this trail 3 days per week for 2 years and it’s the most peaceful & serene experience one could ever ask for. It encompasses the true Louisiana Swamp beauty! From the occasional gator sunbathing to the squirrels rustling through the pine needles for nuts. The large array of southern flowers will have your senses going haywire in a good way¿. As perfect as this sounds there are a couple things you’ll need to be aware of. 1. Pets are NOT allowed, but yet people still make their way on the trail and allow their pets to poop without picking it up. Sometimes the less than desirable drug addicts make a way to the trail. They won’t bother you, they’ll just move out of your way. And last but not least please be careful when crossing the intersections it’s a lot of them.

Flat and straight

November, 2023 by arlene.deardorff

We rode from Mandeville to Covington round trip @28 miles. There are lots of street crossings but many have a 4 way stop. There isn’t much traffic at the crossings. There are 2 towns of interest , Abita and Covington. Other than those towns there isn’t much to look at. Trees are on both sides of the bike path so you do have shade. I like lots of scenery so this wasn’t my favorite trail.

Mississippi River Trail (Louisiana)

Nice trail ride

September, 2023 by hello190

Paved. Nice trail ride. There is no shade, but it’s clean & smooth. Following the Mississippi River was pretty! I liked it.

Pontchartrain Lakefront Trail

Relaxing

June, 2023 by cookemnstr85

Nice trail for walking or biking. Great if you just want to get out and meander along the lake. There are little spots along the way to sit and rest if you need. Very quiet, very safe.

Tammany Trace - 2 JUN'23

June, 2023 by 7s5a692x35

We joined the trail from Camp Salmen Nature Park and rode it to the city limits of Covington and back to Abita. The first section was recently repaved and was in superb condition and the rest of the trail was also in great shape.
One nice safety measure that is in place is that as the trail intersects secondary roads and neighborhood streets there were 4 way stops in place which makes the trail safer for the users.
The Abita Brew Pub was a refreshing as it was right on the trail and offered food and adult beverages but was extremely busy at lunchtime on a Saturday. It was worth the wait…

Pontchartrain Lakefront Trail

Lovely Ride Along the Lake

May, 2023 by jimmacika

This is a well-paved trail that you ride for 24 miles round trip if you start at one end do a turnaround at the other end. It consistently has low traffic and is completely safe. If you need a diversion from looking constantly at the lake, you can take one of the paved access paths over the levee to get a gander at the stately homes overlooking the levee path. The only caveat if you're on a bike is that there is absolutely nothing to block the wind coming off the lake if indeed it is one of those windy days. On one of our hot summer days with the oppressive heat and spirit-crushing humidity, however, some breeze is quite welcome. There are several places to park your car along the trail so access is quite easy. Enjoy!

Mississippi River Trail (Louisiana)

Incredible Distance Trail!

April, 2023 by jimmacika

The three best things about this trail are its distance, its surface, and the fact that it’s non-interrupted by any cross-traffic.

It’s a 50 mile trail along the Mississippi that allows you to really stretch your legs or you can turn around at anytime to make it a shorter fitness ride. It’s asphalt surface is very smooth and while there are some driveways over the trail that lead to various marine interests, really you can pedal continuously without stopping. This is an under appreciated jewel of a trail. The only drawback is that when leaving from Audubon Park, bathrooms are scarce; the closest one is 11.5 miles away in Kenner Rivertown. After that they are more frequent.

Wonderful Ride from Start to Finish

April, 2023 by oraziofotografik

The well maintained asphalt is relatively level throughout from Slidell to Covington with a slight incline in a few places with shaded areas along the way. Bonus lunch and beer on the way back at Abita Springs!

Wonderful Ride from start to Finish

Pleasant experience throughout from Slidell all the way to Covington. The trail is fairly level along the entire route on well kept asphalt pavement. And there was a bonus at Abita Springs on the way back … a great meal and beer!
