Tanglefoot Trail

Christmas Ride

January, 2021 by cliff6274

Rode trail from Houston to New Albany with my son and his wife. Really great time and enjoyable ride. Stopped along the trail at various whistle stops. Smaller ones were closed but enough were open to make it uncomfortable. Well maintained and staffed with very family volunteers. Well worth visit!

Fall Ride on the Tanglefoot!

January, 2021 by dustonm

On day 1 we rode the Tanglefoot Trail from New Albany to Houston. Stayed at the Best Western Plus. Make sure to ask them how to access the trail from the hotel. Not too bad, but you do have to ride on some roads to access trail from this hotel. Trail is nice paved trail, very flat and fast. Only real drawback to the trail is there are a considerable number of cross roads where you need to be careful (watch for traffic). Also considerable number of bridges, with some being pretty rough, but overall very nice easy ride, with plenty of places on the trail to stop and take a break. Arrived in Houston and stayed the evening at Trailhead Bike and Bed (great place!). Day 2 - rode back to New Albany. Total distance (round-trip) was about 90 miles. Great fall ride, with perfect temps. Great trip if you're looking for a nice trail in Mississippi. Also close access to the Natchez Trace Trail.

Late September bike ride

Pretty nice ride from Houston. Late September. Low 80's pretty nice. Not much traffic on the trail. Nice and flat and pretty smooth, but the bridges over some of the streams were a little rough.

Shaded Summer Ride

June, 2020 by loweryri45

Began in Houston, traveled to New Hoalka and back to Houston. Enjoyed the ride! Clean and shaded ride with several rest areas some with picnic tables, trash cans, and bike racks. Make sure you visit David’s One Stop in Hoalka, great folks! Whistle Stops covered with clean restrooms, water fountains, and picnic tables in both locations (Houston and New Hoalka). Will be back for the next 10 miles soon!

Columbus Riverwalk

Enjoyable

May, 2020 by deloresi

This is a very nice path by the river......when you can see it. I am always curious why paths or trails are built, but the scenery is so shrouded by over growing bushes that the views are nonexistent. The river can be seen in a few places which adds to the enjoyment of the path. Biking and walking would be the only way to traverse this path because of the the sand that completely obscures the concrete path in some areas. I wouldn't suggest inline skating here, although it would be perfect for it if it was cleaned off.

Early Nov ride

November, 2019 by digitalpubs

Loved every bit of our ride except for the blaring radio station at the Pontotoc whistle stop where we stopped for lunch. This was an exceptionally well maintained trail and the well placed whistle stops have clean restrooms, bike tools and water. I highly recommend this ride.

Storm damage near Houlka, MS OCT 2019

October, 2019 by jduffy3124

We traveled north from Houlka Whistlestop for about 2 miles. We crossed several downed trees and the whole path looked very much like the surrounding forest floor. 70 mph winds came through the area 10-26. Give them some time to recover their neighborhoods and the trail.

Nice trail for a (no cars involved) bike ride!

October, 2019 by drjkadtr

Drove over from AL for a weekend biking trip. Great trail with good scenery and nice rest stops with restrooms, drinking fountains, and even music at one. The little towns that you cycle through are adorable and if you do go into town, you can find food at shops/cafes. We had a nice pre-ride dinner in New Albany, MS at Caio Chow and post-ride treats at Brain Freeze and Sugaree's Bakery. Highly recommend them all. The trails were well-maintained, with well-marked road crossings. There were a few wide cracks to be aware of. Overall, great ride! Will definitely bring our bike club back!

Tanglefoot Trail

Best Trail

September, 2019 by triedham

Camping in Trace State Park specifically to ride this trail. Biked from Ecru north to New Albany and returned. We’ve bike about 2000 miles on rail trails the past two years and this may be the best. Flat, smooth and nicely shaded in the morning. New Albany has several nice restaurants and bakeries. Nice water/bathroom stops. Plan to try Ecru south tomorrow. Maybe a little earlier as the afternoon temps are in the high nineties this week.

loved it

August, 2019 by dwilliamsibew

My wife and I rode from New Albany to Ecru this past weekend (23 ish miles round trip). It was a very scenic and easy ride with very slight changes in elevation. The frozen yogurt shop at the trailhead is highly recommended.
