Spillway Road Multi-Use Trail

Part of a GREAT trail loop!

May, 2021 by michaeljechols

I regularly ride this section of trail as part of a 11.25 mile loop that travels along multi-use paths and bike lanes that will carry you along a complete loop of Pelahatchie Bay and over the Causeway. This is an enjoyable loop with several hundred feet of elevation changes to make it interesting.

Pear Orchard Road Multi-Use Trail

Nice multi-use trail along Pear Orchard Rd..

On one end it connects to the Trace Trail which is nice.

Tanglefoot Trail

Our Tanglefoot Trail Experience

May, 2021 by glostik07

We stayed at the Trailhead Bike & Bed in our RV at the beginning of the Tanglefoot Trail in Houston. This is a great place to stay, if you plan on spending the night! We biked the Pontotoc route to New Albany and back and then we biked the section from Houston up to Pontotoc and back. Our favorite section was the Pontotoc to New Albany section. It has a lot more rest area stops and rain shelters than the lower 25 miles of the trail. All wooden the bridges are old so expect a bit of a bumpy ride, and the one bridge close to Houston can maybe jar your fillings out! The trail isn’t used much as we maybe saw a dozen people use the route both days, however we thoroughly enjoyed the trail.

Tanglefoot Trail

tanglefoot was wonderful

May, 2021 by fwbrombergjr

Rode the trail yesterday from New Albany down to Houston. It was in great shape. Plenty of places to stop along the way to take a break, but the greatest treat was finding “Daisy’s on the Square” in Houston. Great sandwich/coffee/pizza and beer place they simply call “Gather”. It’s just three blocks from the end of the trail and very bicycle friendly. I saw the bluest bluebirds I have ever seen along with the largest black snake I’ve ever seen. Said snake slithered off the trail as I approached. Mississippi squirrels are not so smart. Twice I had to brake and swerve to avoid a road kill. Overall a great day!

Tanglefoot Trail

Good, smooth trail

April, 2021 by adsaxs

We stayed at the Harry Stafford City Park in Pontotoc which is 1-1/2 miles from the Pontotoc Trailhead. We cycled two sections of the trail. One day we cycled from Pontotoc to just before the Ecru Whistlestop. For the first mile or so of the trail there are a number of street crossings as you leave Pontotoc and the trail is close to the road. Then, the trail gets into a more rural-feeling section with open fields, farms, etc. Trail was very smooth and flat. Bridges on the trail were a made of wood and a little rough. On the return, we stopped at downtown Pontotoc to have a look.

The second day, we headed from Pontotoc to the Algoma Whistlestop. We turned around sooner than we would have liked and made it back just in time before it started raining. I was told that heading north towards New Albany was nicer but I saw nothing wrong with the short southern section we cycled.

The Pontotoc Trailhead parking was a good size and had picnic tables and covered pavilion. We drove to New Albany one day and the trailhead parking lot is adjacent to the library and also a good size. A new trailhead visitor center is opening up right next to the library. I would recommend this trail and was surprised that the counties were able to get together to make this trail a reality.

Tanglefoot Trail

smooth, flat and paved

April, 2021 by cabincellars

The trail from Ecru to Pontotoc was beautiful. The parking at Ecru was small, but enough for when we were there. There was a bathroom and picnic tables and garbage can. The trail was paved and beautiful. The road crossing were limited and low traffic crossings. The Pontotoc stop was also beautiful with flowers, fountain, bathrooms and plenty of picnic tables with garbage cans. There was plenty of parking. What a well maintained trail and very flat.

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.
