Tuxachanie National Recreation Trail

bridge is out

March, 2021 by mlrlet1125

We started at Hwy 49 and wanted to go as far as lake and turn back, but a little over 4 miles in the bridge was out and you couldn’t go further. Wish there had been a notice stating that. There is not a single bench to rest. Trail is well maintained and easy to navigate.

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!

Tanglefoot Trail

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.

Fantastic

Tanglefoot is best rail-to-trail! Peaceful, beautiful ride.

Longleaf Trace

Nice peaceful and quiet trail

December, 2020 by apetrov1

We came down from the Chicago area the week of Thanksgiving to ride a couple rails to trails in Mississippi. This was our second of the two. We did all 44 miles both ways (88miles) over 2 days. Parked in Bassfield and rode the western portion on Sunday Nov 22nd, and left from Residence Inn Hattiesburg, and did the eastern portion, on Monday Nov 23rd. Really enjoyed the ride. Longleaf is very tree covered, so you're shaded most of the way. Bassfield has a great park that seems fairly well maintained. In fact, all the stations/depots/gateways were very well maintained. The trail is very sparse on the western end. In fact, we only saw 4 ppl from Bassfield to Prentiss and back (22miles), on a Sunny and 75 degree Sunday. More ppl obviously on Monday, on the eastern portion, but never felt crowded at all.

The Good. Trail has mile markers. Great signage (really, like a sign for just about everything), impossible to not know where you are on this trail. Crossings are all well marked. Good maps at stops (even showing elevations, milage, restrooms, you can find the map on the longleaf web site). Parking at all the stations/depots/gateways. Quite a few good rest tables/benches between stations. Water fountains outside the stations. No trash on the trail, and it had been cleared/blown recently because no leaves and very little sticks on the path.

The only two downsides were the trail asphalt is starting to show its age as far as how smooth. I wanted to call this out since a lot of the reviews here are 1.5years ago and older. There really isn't any ground that is super bad, or under repair, but in general, after mile marker 4 west of Hattiesburg to Prentiss, there's a lot of intermittent bumpiness from tree roots, every so often. However, some sections are still very smooth. Very small bumps, nothing that will break a wheel, but also very noticeable. We did this on trekking bikes w/ 700x35 size tires and front and seat shocks. We did see a few people doing the trail on road bikes, but on some of the smoother sections. I don't think a road bike w/ 28mm or less width, and no suspension, would be a whole lot of fun to do the entire thing anymore, or even certain sections. Second downside was that the bathrooms in both Bassfield and Prentiss were closed midday on a beautiful Sunday. Rating a 4/5 because of those two things. I'm sure this was a 5 star trail 5 years ago when the tree roots hadn't done their work. Would still recommend it if you’re in the area and haven’t done it.

What a nice walk to end our trip!¿

Loved the tall pine trees. Trail was awesome!! We had time to only walk 6 miles. One of the best we’ve walked. Looking forward to coming back soon and walking the entire trail!!

Tanglefoot Trail

Late September bike ride

October, 2020 by mardis5620

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.
