The 24-mile, 15-25-foot-wide native soil equestrian trail located along the Longleaf Trace is recognized as one of South Mississippi’s finest. The little-known jewel is regularly maintained and parallel to the Trace, occasionally crossing from one side to the other due to terrain or other considerations. The trail has a large trailer parking/staging area at its northern end (Carson) that includes 10 horse stalls, a primitive camp area, and a group pavilion. A large trailer parking area is also available at the Sumrall Station. Equestrian stalls, a primitive camp area, and a group pavilion is available at the South end of the equestrian trail at the Ronnie Shows Nature Center.
Parking for the Ronnie Shows Nature Center stalls and primitive camp is at the Sumrall Station (5 ½ mi.) or the Epley Station (1 ½ mi.). Equestrians are joint users of the restrooms and rest stops along the route with the hikers, bikers, and other users of the Longleaf Trace.
