Mississippi River Trail?

Anyone have any experience biking the Mississippi River Trail? Is it a decent route? Should I have any concerns about it? I'm trying to find a good route to get to the TransAm from southern Louisiana. Was originally planning on taking the Natchez Trace up north, but I went that way last summer and I'm looking for something a bit different.

Here are a set of links to information about the Mississippi River Trail. They are all written by the author of the guide to the Mississippi River Trail and are for each state the trail goes through.

You can also check main page for the Trail: https://www.mississippirivertrail.org/

Might check out the ACA Underground Railroad route too:

or the Great Rivers SOuth...

both look like the run from southern La to the TransAm.
