The residents and public officials have done a fantastic job in developing this area. It is fantastic for children and activities throughout the year. Restaurants are abundant in the area and the fantastic Northshore lakefront only a few blocks away.

This is my seventh ride on this premier trail connecting Slidell to Mandeville to Abita Springs to Covington. Flat, wooded, some gorgeous swampland, all paved and patrolled.
