The Abita Springs Trail


We needed some family time.

Good belly laugh, leave your cares behind kinda family time.

Although we were missing two kids, because one is in Disney and the other was building a bed.

We hit the trail!


Just a few towns over, nestled in the center of Abita Springs, is a trail.

It was once an old train track, now turned into the neatest bike trail ever!



Its over 30 miles long... one way!


You can hop onto the trail through so many stops and tiny towns.

It will take you over small bridges.


Tree shaded paths...


And the sweetest little country towns.


If I'm correct, you can even rent bikes along the way or have yours serviced at the cutest bike shop.





The portion of trails we took brought us past pretty condo's..


Ohhh..


fun shops...


and tiny sno ball stands!!


Of course my heart skipped a beat when we passed a small "cottage" development being constructed.

They had some of the sweetest homes being built along the way.

I loved the front porches and the "community" feel.


And this guy...

He and Maddy just stopped and smiled every time I needed to snap a picture.

I'm so glad they "get me".


We hit the trail on a Saturday and I'm sure it's one of the bustiest days to visit.

The bike traffic was not bad at all.



Along the way, you will find picnic tables in the perfect spots and cottages to take breaks.


Behind this building below, they have a large spray park for kids.

I think that was one of our favorite spots to pass.

Not only hearing the laughter of kiddos splashing but you get a nice cool mist as you pass by.

win win


Most of the section we traveled, was traffic free.

There were a few spots in town where you had to cross streets but we felt very safe and the towns are super great at watching out for bikers.




Right here...

In this very spot...

The smell of hot boiled crawfish lured us in!!


We only touched on a very small part of the trail but have high hopes to visit each and every mile.




Nothing compares to the simple pleasures of riding a bike.

  1. What a wonderful day for bike riding along the Tammany Trace, Susie. Looks like y'all rode over to the historic downtown Covington area from Abita Springs. If you happen to be at the Abita Springs Trailhead on a Sunday afternoon sometime, you're sure to enjoy the local Farmer's Market, and musicians performing on the stage, too! So glad y'all had a great time. All the best to you, Trisha (http://www.trippalukastyle.com)

  5. If you’re going to strap on the same Replica Rolex every day, it needs to look good with both your Tuesday suit and your Sunday t-shirt, but you don’t want it to be boring. You don’t have to spend five figures to get a great Replica Breitling.The Replica Omega Globemaster ($120) handles all situations effortlessly and is packed with technology like a totally anti-magnetic movement and a more accurate and durable co-axial escapement,you’ll notice the seconds hand seems to tick like on a quartz Rolex Air King, but this Replica IWC is because of a special gear-and-spring system inside that gives it the so-called “deadbeat seconds” for more precise timekeeping.As the brand’s iconic Replica Hermes Handbag individual product, admirable adroitness and absolute kelly 35cm demonstrates what both central and outside.
