Tammany Trace - Mandeville Trailhead

Mandeville Trailhead

675 Lafitte St.
Mandeville LA 70448

The Mandeville Trailhead is 4.38 miles south of the Tammany Trace Headquarters. The city purchased a full block for its Cultural Interpretative Center that is adjacent to the trace. There you’ll find public rest rooms, pavilions, an amphitheater, a tower and picnic facilities. A renovated train station now serves as an additional fun, complete with a splash fountain-sprinkler system that children enjoy. Come experience free Friday evening concerts and the Saturday morning Mandeville Community Market among the many other outdoor activities offered throughout the year.

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.
