Wisner Trail

Meandering waterside delight with minimal elevations

July, 2021 by tgcomputers

Do you like waterways? Trees and greenery? Wide open spaces? Protected traffic crossings? The Wisner Trail rolls all these together in a relaxed park setting that affords cyclists a safe, well-shaded and fun winding path connecting the Esplanade Ridge with the New Orleans Lakefront.
Expect to pass very few (if any, especially while raining) other trail users on this relatively new two-way gem, but when you do, note the mix of roller bladers, walkers, joggers, and fellow bike riders. During inclement weather, be alert for low-hanging branches and possibly slipper conditions on the tighter turns.
Your only elevation happens along the newly constructed I-610 overpass, but it passes quickly and your traversal is 100% separated from moving vehicles. Enjoy the view as, at 20+ feet, you'll be atop one of the taller points for miles around.
Descending in either direction affords you the opportunity to branch off along minor trails leading into City Park, while the trail heads invite you onto roadside paths shooting out along Esplanade and points south, or via surface streets to Lakeshore Drive and points north/west.
Bring along a picnic lunch or fishing pole if you have time to sojourn along Bayou St. John, where boaters and paddle boarders frequent. If you're looking for more adventure, cruise the Big Lagoon next to the New Orleans Museum of Art and/or take a turn with the rented canoes or paddle boats. (They also offer cabana bikes by the hour.)

Baton Rouge Levee Bike Path

Trail going South

July, 2021 by brcorwin2

Took a nice ride Sunday. The paved trail actually goes about 8 miles down river from Equestrian Center that is not shown on map here. All the way to the L’Auberge Casino. The trail head at the BREC Equestrian Center has plenty of free parking, restrooms, drinking water fountain and a free air compressor.

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.

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.

Baton Rouge Levee Bike Path

Crescent Park Trail

The park is too short is my only complaint😀. Fantastic views of the crescent on river. Great landscaping. Nice morning ride.

Lafitte Greenway

Key link in NOLA

April, 2018 by trailsforall

Rode this trail on a beautiful and warm (sunny, 75 degree F) day in late April 2018. I was staying on Canal Street for a conference, and grabbed a Blue Bike (NOLA's bikeshare system) right outside my hotel and rode through the French Quarter, connecting with the trail on St Louis Avenue at Basin Avenue. At a little over two miles, the trail is short - but it connects a decent network of bike lanes and bike sharrows on city streets, with the beautiful City Park. This is an urban trail - so don't think you'll be riding in the quiet country. However, the trail includes native flowers, parkland, recreation amenities (a neighborhood pool and playground) - and for most of its route it is a very relaxing place to ride. It also passes under an elevated section of Interstate 10. Along the route are several at-grade crossing with city streets. Most include push-button actuated flashing beacons. I found the drivers were very courteous, and quickly stopped to let me cross. The trail traverses neighborhoods that are strongly rebounding - lots of new residential construction. Shortly after crossing N Carollton Avenue, there is a new grocery store (Winn-Dixie) and shopping center immediately adjacent to the trail. Check it out!

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.
