From Covington, it's a 3.55-mile ride over the Bogue Falaya River into downtown Abita Springs and the Abita Tourism Plaza, museum and children's playground. Abita is a popular stop with trace-side attractions like the Abita Mystery House, restaurants, and art galleries. Enjoy the heart-of-town Tourist Park, and the Abita Springs Trailhead Museum. The museum, housed in the 1911 bachelor quarters of the town’s old Longbranch Hotel, was moved to the site to serve as history museum, trailhead and visitor center for the little town. It sits right on the Trace, steps from the Abita Brew Pub and within easy walking distance of other restaurants and attractions.

About us

Originally a corridor for the Illinois Central Railroad, the Tammany Trace is now a hike and bike trail that spans from downtown Covington, through Abita Springs, Mandeville and Lacombe and ends in Slidell. A separate equestrian path parallels the Trace in several places. St. Tammany Parish government purchased the abandoned Illinois Central Railroad corridor on December 20, 1992. With the help of grants and federal dollars, St. Tammany Parish government has asphalted 31 miles, remodeled railroad trestles into pedestrian bridges, and maintained the Trace.
