Pontchartrain Lakefront Trail Description

This is a flat trail that skirts the south shore of Lake Pontchartrain in New Orleans. In early 2014, the last of the bridges across the outfall canals was finished, and an underpass beneath Causeway Blvd. was added in 2012, so it is now a nice continuous path. You can get on at Bucktown, and at most of the major North/South streets like Causeway. The path runs all the way to the West edge of Kenner, then crosses the levee and continues South almost to the Interstate
