Walk it, run it, bike it, skate it.

There's 44 miles of gorgeous trail to blaze.

about the trace

The Longleaf Trace is South Mississippi's premier running, biking, hiking, and equestrian trail. It is a beautiful, 44-mile linear park that extends from Hattiesburg (elevation 220') through Sumrall (290'), Bassfield (460'), and Carson to Prentiss (336'). A Rails-To-Trails conversion, the trail is 10 feet wide and paved.

There’s more to explore than just a great recreational trail when visiting the Longleaf Trace. Along the way, you’ll find spurs that lead to excitement and adventure that won’t be discovered anywhere other than the Pine Belt of Mississippi. Venture off the asphalt and get way more than you bargained for when you hit the trail!  

Planning a trip down the Trace? Here are some events happening both on the Trace and in cities along the route. Get the most out of your next adventure!

Due to Covid-19 all events have been postponed until further notice. 

Please be advised on January 4, 2021, the section of the Longleaf Trace at Sumrall from Highway 42 to Rock Hill Road will be closed until further notice due to construction work on bridge. No thru traffic will be allowed. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation while we make the necessary repairs.
