The Longleaf Trace is the South’s premier recreational trail.  Extending from Downtown Hattiesburg, through the campus of The University of Southern Mississippi, and stopping in Sumrall, Bassfield, Carson, and on to Prentiss, Mississippi, it is home to biking, hiking, running, skating and horseback riding.  The Trace extends 44 +/- miles through the beautiful south Mississippi landscape.


There is no user fee for this beautiful trail and the Longleaf Trace relies solely on support from the communities and counties through which it traverses, plus friends like you.
