Carville Levee Trail

Carville Levee Trail

May, 2024 by bobbyridenourjr

This is a nice ride if you’re in the area but wouldn’t travel very far to make this ride. We found a parking area on the South end of the trail. Parking area was on the river side of the levee, so don’t miss it if you’re looking for a place to park! The trail began as smooth pavement but turned into hard packed gravel after about a 1/2 mile, so I wouldn’t recommend rollerblades on this trail. blades.

Ward Creek Greenway

Nice trail

Not the longest by far, but not a bad little trail.

Arthur Ray Teague Parkway Trail

Nice Ride and Beautiful National Wildlife Area

April, 2024 by jdwiesner

Parked in an access lot about two miles from downtown (boat launch and sheriff’s substation) and rode south. It’s a well maintained, paved trail. Relatively flat. It’s closer to the highway than the river in many spots, unfortunately, probably because of the flood plain. Still, it’s pleasant ride. The highlight is the southernmost end that goes into the Red River National Wildlife area. I don’t think this 2-3 mile section is included on the trail map or in the mileages posted. It’s the highlight of the ride. We didn’t see another biker on the entirety of our 17 mile round trip. Just a few pedestrians. Undiscovered gem.

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.

Tammany Trace

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.

Tammany Trace

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.

Red River Bicycle Trail

Okay for off road or hybrid bikes

September, 2023 by m2kfq2w2an

Road the trail today. Parking can be found at the riverfront near the aquarium. The trail is rough so don’t expect a smooth ride and but can be ridden. Should be ridden at a leisure pace due to curves, small overhanging limbs, wash outs, grass growing through cracks, holes, cracking and lifting of asphalt caused by tree roots. Beware of offshoot tunnels as one we tried got caught in deep mud and had to push our bikes out.

Arthur Ray Teague Parkway Trail

Well Maintained

September, 2023 by m2kfq2w2an

We rode 19.9 miles on this trail yesterday. It was an easy ride. We got on at the Brookshire Grocery Arena and road a little pass Boomtown Casino and back the other way a little past the Nature Center. The trail is mainly open, has more trees on the eastern side, has bathroom stops and lots of picnics tables and seats along the trail. A good portion follows the Red River. It definitely was worth the ride.

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

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!
