Tammany Trace near Mandeville

The Tammany Trace is a rail trail in Louisiana occupying a former Illinois Central Railroad corridor.

It has been developed into a 31-mile (50 km) asphalt trail for hiking, cycling, and wheelchair use with a parallel equestrian trail.[1]

It connects Covington, Abita Springs, Mandeville, Lacombe, and Slidell running along the northshore of Lake Pontchartrain. The trail was damaged by Hurricane Katrina but was reopened by early 2007.
