Ride along the Tammany Trace

28 Miles Round Trip - Point-to-Point Trail

New Hampshire and East Lockwood streets - Search Nearby - Added by Patrick Willis

The Trace, as it’s known to locals, is so named because it traces 28 miles across St. Tammany Parish, connecting the communities of Covington, Abita Springs, Mandeville and Lacombe, with an additional unconnected seven-mile stretch between Lacombe and Slidell. The Trace is just a little under an hour away from New Orleans. Great way to spend a busy week Saturday or Sunday to get away from the city. 

The Trace is an old railroad line turned into a biking, hiking, horse riding, trail. Most of the corridor is 200-feet wide, traversing lush woods that form a canopy overhead. There are 31 bridges in peppered throughout the Trace, and many of them are magnificent timber bridges, once railroad trestles, that are still structurally sound. The reuse of these original trestles has made the Trace a right-of-way into a wildlife conservation corridor that links isolated parks, creates green

Nature And History Abound

There are old cemeteries, occasional wildlife and lush foliage, making for a fascinating and enjoyable ride! Also, the section between slidell and lacombe is once again connected since they fixed the old bayou lacombe bridge.
