Mountain Biking The Tammany Trace
#47 of 50 mountain bike trails in Louisiana
#11736 in the world
This 31-mile asphalted trail and parallel equestrian trail connects five communities--Covington, Abita Springs, Mandeville, Lacombe, and Slidell.
The Trace also serves as a wildlife conservation corridor, linking isolated parks, creating greenways, and preserving historic landmarks and wetlands. You can observe the natural habitat, bayous, streams and rivers from the vantage point of 31 bridges built on the original railroad trestles.
This is a truly beautiful trail.

Located on the northshore of Lake Pontchartrain, St. Tammany has easy access to New Orleans via the Causeway or the I-10 twin span. Interstates 12, 10, 55 and 59, U.S. Hwy. 190, and a vast array of state highways conveniently tie St. Tammany Parish to the entire country.
I have accessed The Trace from Fountainbleu State Park in Mandeville, off of Interstate 12, exiting south to State Hwy 59.
