Cycling

Over the past decade or two, cycling has become one of Mississippi’s fastest-growing outdoor activities. From swift and steep single-track bike routes in dense hardwood forests, to high mileage rail trails that run through scenic small towns, Mississippi has a wide assortment of biking trails that span the state. A few of the more popular rides are the Natchez Trace Parkway, which crisscrosses the state for 300 miles. Another popular trail is the longleaf Trace, a 41-mile journey that is one of the nation’s first rails-to-trails projects. The Tanglefoot Trail, Mississippi’s longest rails-to-trails conversion, meanders 43.6 miles through the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, while the 200-year-old Mississippi River Trail (MRT) lead you 3,000 miles through 10 states, following the Mississippi from Memphis to New Orleans. Mountain biking also continues to grow rapidly in Mississippi, and numerous trails can be found in our state parks and in our six national forests.
