Mississippi River Trail (Louisiana)

Nice riding trail.

January, 2017 by almremod

Rode from the zoo to the spillway and back. Really nice ride with no stopping. Total of 54.2 miles round trip. There is good parking next to the zoo. There is a bathroom about 16 miles north from the start.

Great Ride

November, 2016 by crad94

In town for a bachelor party this weekend. While the crazies slept, I rode from Audubon Park to the end and back. Just under 52 miles...All the trail is paved and some recently updated... Solid trail to log some miles. The ride back sucked a little due to being into the wind, so keep that in mind!

Baton Rouge Levee Bike Path

Weekday Ride

May, 2016 by bdabing69

Couldn't find a place to park at either end. Didn't want to pay to park. Trail was nice and very good views of the river. Allot of children on field trips by U.S.Kidd. Overall OK for a beginner.

Baton Rouge Levee Bike Path

good for families

September, 2015 by juliereads4fun

Started at Farr Park and ended with pizza at Schlitz & Giggles. 10 or 11 y.o is probably youngest child who'd enjoy this, esp if they have a decent bike. It was a warm Labor Day, but always a nice breeze in the levee path.

Awesome Trail

May, 2015 by arkansasflash

Rode the river levee trail yesterday. There are two sections of it that are closed. One is easy to navigate around and is short. The second is longer and you'll end up walking your bike. The plantations are amazing. Great views of the Mississippi River. Tandyou'll have to

Mississippi River Trail (Louisiana)

perfect bike path

September, 2014 by jvanpelt

The trail extends from the Audubon Zoo parking lot all the way to the Bonnet Carre Spillway, a total of around 25 miles. It's a great trail, although as ckelleher0 mentioned there is little shade. However, I am a cyclist and find that it is perfect for early morning or evening training rides. There are a few service roads that cross the path, but they are rare and bikers / pedestrians have the right-of-way. It is sooo nice not to have such a stretch of bike trail with absolutely no concern for traffic.

There are plenty of places along River Rd to stop for a break or to refill your water bottles.

The levee construction is definitely a hindrance, but it is due to be complete by the end of 2015, I believe. Check out these two links for more information: http://bit.ly/1rw4mtj and http://bit.ly/1q8zXG8

However, even with the construction there is currently about 20 miles of continuous path open (as of 9/14) in Jefferson and St Charles Parishes.

Construction at the Audubon Entrance.

July, 2014 by webassett

I left Audubon Park and traveled west along the trail. After 1.5 miles the trail is under construction. I tried to follow the trail along the heavily traveled side road and could not find where the construction ends after 1 more mile. I am not from the area and if someone else knows about the length of the construction please make that information available. I and from the Charlotte, NC area and was excited to travel this entire length only to be disappointed.
