This Rail Trail Near New Orleans Is Perfect For A Summer Adventure

What sat abandoned for decades is now one of the most popular recreational trails in the state. In 1992, the St. Tammany Parish government purchased the abandoned Illinois Central Railroad corridor and remodeled it into what is now known as the Tammany Trace. Whether you’re looking to explore all 31 miles or just a short section, the Trace is the perfect spot for a summer adventure.
