The Longleaf Trace is a Rails-to-Trails project presently connecting Hattiesburg to Prentiss. A picturesque biking and walking trail used by folks from all over the country, the trail begins at the University of Southern Mississippi and winds through many small towns and scenic countryside. RideSouth has taken customers on the trail, supported functions and personally enjoyed riding the LLT since its completion in 2000. We have even built a rest stop at mile marker 5.25 outside of Hattiesburg.
Here you can enjoy a short video of portions of the trail that we filmed in February, 2013. We have a longer video in the shop if you need more information. The LLT is a significant portion of the RideSouth Signature Ride this March 23-24. The Signature Ride is an annual event that launches from the RideSouth shop and finishes in Hattiesburg at the Holiday Inn. If you would like more information on the ride, please click here. We hope you will join us this year!
