Carville Levee Trail

Carville Levee Trail

May, 2024 by bobbyridenourjr

This is a nice ride if you’re in the area but wouldn’t travel very far to make this ride. We found a parking area on the South end of the trail. Parking area was on the river side of the levee, so don’t miss it if you’re looking for a place to park! The trail began as smooth pavement but turned into hard packed gravel after about a 1/2 mile, so I wouldn’t recommend rollerblades on this trail. blades.

Mississippi River Trail (Louisiana)

Nice trail ride

September, 2023 by hello190

Paved. Nice trail ride. There is no shade, but it’s clean & smooth. Following the Mississippi River was pretty! I liked it.

Pontchartrain Lakefront Trail

Relaxing

June, 2023 by cookemnstr85

Nice trail for walking or biking. Great if you just want to get out and meander along the lake. There are little spots along the way to sit and rest if you need. Very quiet, very safe.

Pontchartrain Lakefront Trail

Lovely Ride Along the Lake

May, 2023 by jimmacika

This is a well-paved trail that you ride for 24 miles round trip if you start at one end do a turnaround at the other end. It consistently has low traffic and is completely safe. If you need a diversion from looking constantly at the lake, you can take one of the paved access paths over the levee to get a gander at the stately homes overlooking the levee path. The only caveat if you're on a bike is that there is absolutely nothing to block the wind coming off the lake if indeed it is one of those windy days. On one of our hot summer days with the oppressive heat and spirit-crushing humidity, however, some breeze is quite welcome. There are several places to park your car along the trail so access is quite easy. Enjoy!

Mississippi River Trail (Louisiana)

Incredible Distance Trail!

April, 2023 by jimmacika

The three best things about this trail are its distance, its surface, and the fact that it’s non-interrupted by any cross-traffic.

It’s a 50 mile trail along the Mississippi that allows you to really stretch your legs or you can turn around at anytime to make it a shorter fitness ride. It’s asphalt surface is very smooth and while there are some driveways over the trail that lead to various marine interests, really you can pedal continuously without stopping. This is an under appreciated jewel of a trail. The only drawback is that when leaving from Audubon Park, bathrooms are scarce; the closest one is 11.5 miles away in Kenner Rivertown. After that they are more frequent.

Mississippi River Trail (Louisiana)

MRT

January, 2023 by scrtk6gmff

I live in New Orleans and have this trail several times. It’s a great trail with views of the “Mighty Mississippi” all the way. Watching the huge ships pass by on their way to who knows where is a nice adder. There is NO SHADE so suggest riding early in the morning and BRING WATER.

Mississippi River Trail (Louisiana)

Nice Trail on Top of Levee

January, 2023 by normanbowers

I rode the east section on north side of river. Trail is smooth with a few low volume driveway crossings. Trail has nice views due to elevation, but is exposed to wind and sun. The section I rode had no shade, water or restrooms. I wish there were mile markers. Parking available at Jefferson Park and across the river road near the flea market.

Pontchartrain Lakefront Trail

Great riding trail but no shade or water

January, 2023 by normanbowers

The surface is smooth and straight except for crossings of pumping station outlets. Long straight sections allow for plenty of speed if desired. The ride and view is kind of boring as there is just the shore on one side and a levy on the land side. There are portable toilets at the various parking areas. The downside of this trail is no shade or water.

17th Street Canal Trail

Strait and Smooth

January, 2023 by normanbowers

The trail is straight and smooth with no intersecting streets between Veterans Blvd and Hammond Hwy. There is no official crossing of Veterans Blvd, I guess go to the crosswalk to the east. The trail is on top of a dike with a concrete floodwall that prevents any view to the east. This is not a destination trail but has utility if in the area anyway. Parking available at the north end at Bucktown Marina picnic area just a block west.

Pontchartrain Lakefront Trail

Easy ride, flat, safe, and scenic

May, 2022 by davidmsr

Nice trail on the south side of Lake Pontchartrain. Very smooth, flat, and scenic trail overlooking lake. Parked at Bonnabel Boat launch/park. (Close to causeway bridge) Safe and plenty of parking spots. Also has port-a-potties at this location and at Laketown fishing pier next to Treasure Chest Casino. Observed police patrols in all the parks, plus locals walking and running alone. No shade on this trail, but nice breeze off the lake the day we rode. (If you want shade, ride on the north side of the lake-Tammany Trace)

St. Anthony Avenue Trail

a trail that has gone neglected

January, 2022 by cschully

This is one of the oldest in the city; an earlier member of the Morrell dynasty helped install it. But it has not been repaired or updated to fit new traffic safety standards. It’s probably fine to walk. Don’t try a wheelchair or bike. Hopefully this old beauty will be fixed one day.
