Longleaf Trace is South Mississippi's premier running, biking, hiking, equestrian trail. It is a beautiful linear park, 41 miles long and fairly flat (a rails-to-trails conversion), extending from Hattiesburg (elevation 220') through Sumrall (290'), Bassfield (460'), and Carson to Prentiss (336'). It has recently been extended to the USM campus, and negotiations are underway to acquire the right of way to downtown Hattiesburg.

If you are looking for a good, easy-going, paved trail, then this trail is for you. I walk my dog on it just about every day. It can have a lot of people on it though

There's several Mountain Bike Trails near the Jackson Station, roughly 5 miles from the trail head by USM. Turtle Loop, Roller Coaster, and Rail Shed Loop are a few of them. These are fun trails, challenging enough for skilled riders & easy enough for newbies. The trails are mostly shaded, and well maintained by local riders.

Made this ride from the water tower at the SMU campus to Prentiss and back . Plenty of country and wildlife to see along the way. Very enjoyable ride. A good distance test for anyone. I logged 83 miles on the odometer. Plenty of rest areas and the asphalt surface is in great repair. The trail is very well maintained also. Take water, lunch and enjoy....

Very peaceful once you're outside the city. Well maintained, great smooth ride for roadies. There is also a network of mountain bike trails just past the first rest area a few miles west of the Hattiesburg gateway.

Good road biking trail not much elevation change. Was a bit crowded by the university. Was on trail around 5-6PM during the week.

The trace is paved so it's great for road biking and running. There are off-road trails close to the Jackson depot that great for mountain biking and trail running.
