Run the Street Car Line in Uptown New Orleans

Rate this Adventure Louisiana St. Charles Street Car Line

Added by Alex Anderson

Run on the historic New Orleans street car line.

The historic street car line that runs from uptown New Orleans to Downtown New Orleans is the perfect place to run and experience the city if you are visiting. 22 miles of track allow you to choose from many different sections to run. The best section in my opinion is the section from the intersection of S.Carrollton Ave and St. Charles Ave to the intersection of Jefferson Ave and St. Charles Ave. The tracks cut through the beautiful uptown New Orleans Area. You run under oak trees, past Tulane University, past historic homes, the towering Holy Name of Jesus Church and the beautiful Audubon Park. There and back is an easy 4 mile run. After your run stop by Plum Street Snowball stand to cool off. Make sure you bring cash. The stand is located at 1300 Burdette St, New Orleans LA 70118.

I grew up hunting and fishing the back woods of Louisiana all winter, and backpacking the mountains all summer. I try to spend every free moment skiing, backpacking, fishing or finding an adrenaline rush!

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.

Just a fifteen minutes from the hustle and bustle of New Orleans, one can find possibly the best spot in all of the New Orleans Metro Area, "The Levee", as locals call it.

Hike Driskill Mountain

Louisiana / Driskill Mountain Trailhead

This short, family friendly hike offers a peaceful walk in the North Louisiana woods. Multiple times, I've seen deer and rabbits on the trail.
