I am coming to visit family in Mississippi from Colorado. I was wondering if anybody knows of any good routes that I could ride. If you know any please let me know. We will be staying in Hattisburg just South of Jackson. Mountain Bike or Road love them both. Thanks.
Hattiesburg is the eastern terminus of Mississippi's finest paved bike trail, the Longleaf Trace. You can do 40+ miles one way, to the other end at Prentiss (where I live) and there are lots of small county roads with some hills if you find the trace too boring. Also lots of nice hilly backroad loops around the Prentiss end, I can provide more details if you're interested. The Longleaf Trace passes through southern woodlands and farm country, small towns, etc. Practically empty of users on weekdays.
