Description

Added by Josh & Michele

The Longleaf Trace is South Mississippi's premier running, biking, hiking, equestrian trail, extending from Hattiesburg (elevation 220') through Sumrall (290'), Bassfield (460'), and Carson (520') to Prentiss (336').

The Longleaf Trace is an old railroad line that has been paved over to convert it into a running, biking, hiking, equestrian trail. Doing the entire Longleaf Trace at once is an extremely strenuous task - Took me 7.5 hours! Luckily, there are plenty of waypoints along the Trace. This allows you to complete the trail in sections or to start the trail at a station/depot of your choosing. The trail has plenty of rest areas with benches and sometimes rain awnings, and each station/depot on the map has bathrooms, water fountains, and drink vending machines.

Reviews

I randomly biked the Trace from the start in Hattiesburg to the end in Prentiss one Saturday, and I loved it! Other than a sore bum, the trip was very enjoyable and a great way to clear the mind. All you need is a bike, a reusable water bottle, and some snacks stuffed away in a backpack, and you are good to go!
