Love walking part of this trail everyday with my dog! It’s always well maintained and is stays pretty busy with bikers and runners. Definitely a fun thing to do in Hattiesburg if you want to spend some time outside!

very good trail.

Easy paved walking trail at the campground.

Started on edge of Hattiesburg and hiked west several friendly folks on trail I stopped and ate at a restaurant in one of the small towns I have hiked and road many trails across several states and I really like this one. It’s easy so just add on the miles if you like a challenge. Go in the late spring and you can travel through the middle of pretty corn fields. Also lots of pretty long leaf pines. There is also a company that you can pay for a ride from one side to other to get vehicle if need be.

Nice paved trail, good trail to get your exercise on, shaded in parts and nice scenery.

Great trail pretty well maintained

Loved the history on this mostly shaded trail. Enjoyed this, even with the heat and humidity.

We loved this trail. We rode 31 miles from New Albany almost to Pontotoc and back. The trail is set up nice every little town had a rest area with rest rooms and water fountains and rest areas in between. The people we met who lives close by seem to take pride in their trail I can’t wait to go back.

This is a great hike! It is paved and is mostly tree cover. Almost no elevation and there were only a few people. I walked to the reservoir which is very pretty. People were friendly!

Took a group of about 15 scouts to The Tanglefoot in February. Great safe ride for a group of varying skill levels. There are a surprising number of hills. Some of them are fairly long. We rode from Algoma to Houston and took a side trip to the courthouse in Houston. Getting from the trail to the Courthouse was a little dicey, but worth the photo opp. Well maintained trail, but bring your own water in the off season.

This is a short loop around the baseball diamond at Eudora Community Park. It's nice that it is paved, making for a quick walk, run, or easy bike ride. Dog friendly too, so I bring my dogs here quite often.

This is a 6-foot wide paved trail that circles the Eudora Community Park. A portion of the trail is shaded. One section is shared with the other loop trail in the park. To connect this as a loop you will need to cross the parking lot and pick up the trail on the other side, however the trails are lightly used and there should be no issues with doing so.

The trail is great, well marked with lots of rest areas-particularly in Pontotoc which had USB Charging stations and a nice picnic area. I did the lower section 1st and the Houston to New Houlka 10mi area was not maintained well, the path was covered in dead limbs and branches. The 2nd day I did the New Albany to Houlka and the reason I rate it 3 stars is the unchained, mean and aggressive dogs on this trail. I had 2 different packs chase me until I was eventually able to outrun them & another group who didn't leave their yard but barked so aggressively that I was concerned. After the 3rd encounter I turned around and cancelled the rest of my stay as I did not feel safe riding here. I found a trail ranger and told him about my experience and he told me has reported the dogs @ mile 18 but they don't do anything about it. The others were @ mile 15 and mile 6-7. If you stay in the upper portion of the trail you should be fine. I have ridden a lot of rail trails all over the country and have never encountered this situation. So beware!

Beautiful well kept trail it is easy but has a slight incline that can wear on you

Very nice trail , well maintained with lots of rest stops and access to water, restrooms, and cold drinks. My only complaint is that we were chased by dogs on three occasions while riding from Prentiss to Hattiesburg.

Love the Trace. No 18 wheelers allowed. Lots of stops to see historical sites. Officially it takes about 5 days to drive the Trace if you stop and see everything along the way from Natchez, MS to Nashville,TN

A great place to get in shape or recoup after surgery! Folks are friendly and eager to help with any malfunction you may have . Lots of stops /entrances and exits along the way! Take a weekend and see it! Come once and you'll be back several times!

I have ridden the LLT numerous times, often 2 or 3 times per week. I thoroughly enjoy my time spent there. The surface is well-maintained, but beginning to show its age.

As much as I enjoy the LLT, there are a few negatives to keep in mind when planning a trip. 1) Things can get crowded from Jackson Station on in to Hattiesburg, especially in the late afternoon. Near USM, I have at times encountered groups of several people walking abreast that don't feel the need to yield to other traffic. 2) In Bassfield and extending a few miles to the south, I have had numerous encounters with four-wheelers on the trace. A few are very polite and slow down near cyclists. More frequently, the four-wheelers run at high speeds and seem to enjoy "buzzing" cyclists. Once I even encountered a group of 6 or 7 four-wheelers that circled me before racing away.

Despite these factors, I continue to enjoy the LLT, but I do find myself being extra cautious.

Awesome hike! Be prepared to see lots of people. I did 8.1 miles out and back, 16.2 total miles. Not a lot to see, but very clean and well maintained. Entire trail is paved and it's free to get in. You can park next to the dorms at USM,which is probably the most secure area. Everything is labeled, lots of rest areas and a few restrooms along the way.

This is the closest trail to where my parents live, so I'm here often. Very clean and well-maintained, I just don't like how close you are to traffic/interstate noise. I like my nature to be removed-feeling.

Great trail

Tuesday, June 07, 2016

Left from the USM station, walked about a mile past the Jackson Road station, turned around and walked back. Great walk, great trail, hardly any traffic on the trial at all (Saturday morning). I would recommend to anyone.
