Originally a corridor for the Illinois Central Railway, the Tammany Trace is now a scenic trail for all levels of riders. It serves as a wildlife conservation corridor – linking parks, wetlands and historic landmarks. Observe the natural habitat of the bayous, streams and rivers from any of the 31 bridges built on the original railway trestles. 

En route, you can visit the Abita Brew Pub and grab lunch with trail-side seating. 

Visit Tammany Trace Trailhead Headquarters, where you will find the Kids Konnection playground equipped with picnic tables, restrooms and water fountains. Saturday morning cyclists can visit the market at the Mandeville Trailhead to shop for handmade items and taste a variety of local foods.
