Walk the Mississippi River Levee
On this 4-mile stretch, there are separate lanes for bikers and joggers, making it perfect for either activity. Stroll along the levee path and see the Mississippi River up close and personal. You won’t believe the sights you’ll see along the way!
Downtown Heart Trail
Created in 2019 by local entrepreneur Taylor Jacobsem, this 3 mile walking trail takes you through the heart of Baton Rouge. Take a bike ride, walk, or run down the trail to discover the Mississippi River, the Louisiana State Capitol building, Spanish Town, and so much more. After several walks on the trail, Jacobsen reimagined the trail as a heart. A second trail is located in Scotlandville, a community in North Baton Rouge. Once you see the hearts, just know you’re heading in the right direction!
