Bikers and hikers in Louisiana don't have to leave the state to enjoy the great outdoors. Tammany Trace Trail meanders from Covington to Slidell including Abita Springs, Mandeville and Lacombre along the way.
The 31-mile path is paved and has an equestrian path as well. The Illinois Central Railroad trestles are now bridges for pedestrian bridges.
