About The Trail
The Tammany Trace is a scenic, paved, car free, 31-mile rails to trails bike path and recreational corridor. Shared by pedestrians, rollerbladers, joggers and equestrians (on a parallel horse trail), the trail winds through five communities in Louisiana's St. Tammany Parish (Covington, Abita Springs, Mandeville, Lacombe, and Slidell).

The Tammany Trace is approximately 40 miles north of New Orleans (on the northshore of Lake Pontchartrain); it is easily accessible by car and there are a variety of trailheads. Bicycle rentals are available near the trace at the UCM Museum in Abita Springs and the Kickstand Cafe in Mandeville.

More information about tourist related activities along and near the trail are available from the St. Tammany Parish Tourism & Convention Commission. Another tourism site that also offers bicycling related info is
