Mountain Biking Fontainebleau State Park
#39 of 51 mountain bike trails in Louisiana
It's a hiking trail, but I saw bike trail marks on it. And it's compact enough of a surface to do. Not bad for something different. Very easy. Bring insect repellant.

On US190 just east of Mandeville, La. The St Tammany Trace Bike Path goes right through the top portion of the State Park.
I gave this a 2 because I look for a little challenge from a trail. This is wide and flat with some turns. It really is some pretty scenery though... I would call it a nature ride and be happy with that. So if you are looking to get off of the pavement nd into some nature, you will most likely enjoy this pretty scenery and nice ride. If you are looking to improve trail riding skills...not so much.
I would add to watch out overhead for large webs and big banana spiders. They are harmless but big. When you are looking up to duck the spiders, you are not looking at the trail, which does have some small holes and roots that should be noticed.
So...not too challenging but nice scenery and being in nature is better than riding through the city in my book. The spider limbo made it an unpleasant ride for me though. I'll try again when it is a little cooler outside. I thought that I might come out of there spinning webs like Peter Parker...Thank |
Very easy trail. Mostly double-track as it is primarily a hiking trail that they maintain with golf carts and 4-wheelers. Fun afternoon ride if you have small children or just want an easy cruise through some nice scenery.Thank |
