We really enjoy this path. The scenery is great and it seems to be well maintained. There are a few places where the paved path surface is broken up, but it’s not bad yet. Be careful, I saw a couple of spandex bicycle riders going too fast for this trail. Also, women walking alone should be alert. I’ve noticed creepy guys out here a couple times.
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!
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.
Started at New Albany trail head rode the 44 miles to Houston then back no problems whatsoever say a couple of dogs but not interested in me this trail is flat and you will earn every mile good work out not hard but taxing
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
We rode this trail for the first time over the July 4th weekend. It was hot, but the trail is simply awesome. And the best part was the lovely folks at Ingomar United Methodist Church leave a cooler with ice and bottles of water iand even small candy bars right on one of the picnic tables at the whistle stop across from the church. While we were resting and thoroughly enjoy the ice cold water, one of the church members came by to clean up and replenish. We had the nicest conversation. Just made for a great day. Thanks Ingomar UMC. We left money but that is not at all necessary.
This trail is about 20 minutes from where we live. We've rode it a few times.
It's a nice short ride through the woods and along the river. It has a few short rolling hills.
It looks like they plan to make it longer some day, which would be nice.
I was at a teacher training in Harrisburg and did several out and back rides in the evenings and a long ride the day after the training.
Well kept for the most part. There is a parallel horse trail, but it doesn't look used much.
Lots of nice scenery to look at as well as small towns along the way. I was always able to find a nice restaurant after my rides, but not always close to the trail. Had to load up the bike and do a Google search or use my GPS to find one.
Not too far along the trail out of Prentiss is Lake Jeff Davis. There is a side trail going out to the lake. There is also a very small state park campground there. It looks like it would be a nice place to camp and ride the trail. The Longleaf Trace is nice rolling hills with nothing too steep. However, the side trail to Lake Jeff Davis is like a roller coaster ride with a very steep hill as you get close to the lake.
