Louisiana Bootlace Trails

A diverse range of partners collaborate to create a seamless walking and biking network for recreation, transportation and tourism that stretches over 100+ miles from Baton Rouge to the Mississippi Gulf Coast by linking existing and future trails and greenways together.

TrailLink by Rails-to-Trails Conservancy shows the many great trails in our region.

By linking existing and future trails and greenways together, the partners seek to expand on past efforts to develop and connect their pedestrian and bicycle networks and link the area’s diverse communities—ensuring safer access to critical destinations for households without vehicles (20.2 percent in the city in 2016), and improving mobility for people of all ages and abilities throughout the region.

The Louisiana Bootlace Trail Network will also focus on the creation of safe and convenient last-mile connections from trailheads to front doors—thereby improving walkability and bikeability throughout the trail network footprint, and spurring active transportation.
