One of the questions asked was did this activity require above average amount of physical activity and it can but it doesn't have to. Essentially up to the individual on how much you want to do. But we accessed this trail from Westover Street crossing by riding from our hotel. From this point we rode east to the trail end... More

Great place to ride bikes or run! Very secluded and shady! Perfect summer activity for all ages. Plenty of restroom stops along the route.

I've walked and jogged on Longleaf Trace numerous times and I especially love letting my son ride his bike there because he can get ahead of me for quite some time and I never lose sight of him and there are no vehicles to worry about either! I'm not sure how many miles the Trace is exactly, but it goes... More

The Longleaf trace is great for boking, running or walking. For running or walking, stay between Sumrall and USM--the stations are more frequent. Between Sumrall and Prentiss there are only a couple of stations. Fairly level terrain, wide, well paved and maintained. Also has equestrian trails and accomodations for riders.

Great place to get away or to exercise and enjoy the environment. We enjoy riding bicycles on the trace. There are many interesting stops along the way which provide children and adults with a little education while having a little fun.

I love biking the Trace and always wanted to do the entire route. Last weekend we drove to Prentiss to view "the end" in preparation for today's ride. Prentiss station was a mess and the bathrooms were very bad, unusable. Today we biked from Hattiesburg to Prentiss, what a great ride! Great kids event in Bassfield! Arrived in Prentiss, and...

As far as I know the trail is quite safe. The Longleaf Trail is... More

It's nice, well kept and a big bonus to have in our city. Hike, bike, run...horse trails. I love having it close by. It could use some emergency phones at the "stations" to call police, as nighttime may leave some feeling uncomfortable and unsafe. Most everyone has phones with them however. Just be aware of your surroundings is all. Not... More

I have done many 5k races on the Longleaf Trace. At first I didn't love it because it's just long and straight; however, I've recently come to love the longleaf trace. It's one of the only shady places you can go to run, and in this summer heat you have to find some shade. It's also come in handy in... More
