Great trail for a bike. Shaded and pretty smooth. Take the opposite direction that I did for more downhill riding.

For an easy, paved walk, jog, run or bike. This is the place to be. The Tammany Trace is part of the larger Rails to Trails initiative which is worth looking into if you’re searching for different areas of light adventure. With small footbridges crossing creeks, and most roadway crossings being easy to manage, the Trace tends to be the place to be when people are looking for a nice place to walk... Like now.. during the Covid-19 Pandemic. One bit of warning: Most “day bikers” haven’t grasped the concept of bikes yielding to pedestrians. And “On Your Left” is seldom heard. On the plus side.... You could walk many different stretches and find different little spots to eat to break up the day if you’re putting in some miles.

Keep in mind this is a “rails to trail” path, it’s in an urban area. You are not taking a hike on a secluded, vista filled path. If you understand what it means to have an urban path you will love this walk or bikeway. Very flat, low stress street crossings and Bayou St John is a city treasure that not enough tourists see, which this path leads you straight into. Like any urban trek you should keep your wits about you and even though it’s urban it’s through residential areas and areas that are generally pretty sparse of people during night time. I would be careful and wary of using this trail when it’s dark.

good clean walk. trailhead said 1.5 hour hike, took only 45 minutes.

Fun trail , not much elevation but makes for a good hike. Mid February and there were yellow blossoms all along the trail as well as a few Rhododendron in bloom. Very diverse flora and saw a few armadillo as well. Muddy in a few spots so waterproof hikers a good idea.

New Orleans has a bona fide river walk that's clean and well kept. You can look out over the Mississippi and even occasionally spot steam boats tours. It's picturesque and unlike anywhere else in America.

Beautiful, easy bike trail with nice stops along the way. Can't wait to do it again.

I only did the Blue Trail, which is a 3.9 mile loop. Well-marked and well-maintained trail through mixture of bottomland and ridgetop pine forest. Some minor ups and downs. Good wildlife viewing along the Calcasieu River. Overall, possibly the best hike in southwest Louisiana.

First time riding the Blue Trail today. I rode 4.9 miles and it was clearly marked, not too hard of a trail but it was a great ride with different elevation changes . I will definitely ride it more often.

Easy, flat walk. Fun to see the river! Stayed at the KOA

Nice hike. Seen deer.

Bugs bad obviously it’s Louisiana. And uneventful no wildlife other then one squirrel for my dog to case on her 40 foot leash. Come on State parks lift the leash laws I’m sick of getting kick out of park after spending my money.

Great trails. Dogs are allowed on all trails but must be on leash. Was there last weekend and bugs were not bad surprisingly although we sprayed first.

I have hiked every trail there now. I enjoy them all. To manage that many trails in such a small area is impressive. Have seen countless wildlife including deer within arms reach. Great paths by the river and marsh. Most go for a Smooth lazy day

Good trail, I’ve ran prolly 7 miles of it, real pretty at sunset. You can see the river at some parts, the part I ran had trees in the way of most of the river. The trail is paved but a little beaten, and sees runners, lots of cyclists, and even people in motorized scooters.

Nice trail, saw several snakes while hiking this trail. Cypress trail was super hard to follow, as trail was not groomed whatsoever. Bugs are pretty bad, bring bug spray!!

We did the trail with 5 kids ranging from 2yrs to 11yrs old. This was our second time and it wasn’t hard.

Hiked the blue trail, taking the upper blue trail at the fork. Nice hike but definitely bring bug spray. The mosquitos will eat you alive.

Biked through the blue trail 3.9 miles. Terrain is hilly and follows a small stream. Lots of sharp turns and exposed roots. Great trail to skip the gym for leg day! Use bug spray, lots of mosquitoes.

Ok - so if you are just trying to get off the city streets in New Orleans this is a nice paved, flat, straight trail. That’s where the good ends. There is no scenery and getting there from downtown (I stayed at the Hilton Riverside) was a bit scary. I would not run on this trail or travel to this trail alone. I got about 5 miles in on the actual trail.

amazing trail for road cycling.
