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

just a rough grave path, no sights to see.

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.

Well I have seen people on this trail but I loooooooks sooooooo coool

Went in early June before 8am and it was so humid and had so many biting deer flies that it was intolerable. Even worse, we didn’t see any wildlife except a few dragonflies and 2 butterflies. We did hear a white eyed virio but never saw it.

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.

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!

Flat and level crushed limestone trail. Swampy coastal riverine environment. Approximately 7 mile round trip.

Fun and easy little gravel road . Super flat and parts of it hold water for a while . Still fun do get out and run or ride .

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.

We are bless to have this trail. It is safe place to ride well maitained.

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

it's a very easy hiking area, flat with some wooden bridges to cross water features or it is paved for the bikers who don't mind getting wet. At the start of the trail there is a very nice picnic area and fix your bike area, no bathroom facilities though, you will mostly see fields and and a few trees. I liked this trail for a nice walk after Thanksgiving dinner.

I have only been here once but it's so close to where I live I will definitely go back. There's a boat launch at the end of Logtown road that is perfect for launching my kayak. The Bogue Homa is just off the East Pearl river and a nice quite spot to fish and relax.

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.

Good for walking dogs. Bring mosquito repellant because those suckers are big!

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.

The trail is very boring and flat. Nothing much to see. It is about 5 miles total and not over 6 as they say. Easy to hike.

easy. very enjoyable. plants and landmarks are well marked on trail
