Towns and Stations Along the Longleaf Trail
There are nine ‘official’ stations along the Longleaf Trace, plus we included the free parking area outside of Hattiesburg’s Union Station and Chain Park. We put all eleven trail access points on our Longleaf Trace points of interest map below, plus all the other food and lodging options in this guide. There are parking and restrooms at each of these stops, except for Lott Circle, which is nothing more than a gravel lot.
The Longleaf Trace passes through five towns along its route. Hattiesburg is by far the largest and best equipped with multiple access points, numerous dining options, and several bike shops. Sumrall has a few good restaurants as well and makes a delicious stop-over. In fact, if I were only going to ride half of the Trace, I would go from the Gateway (mile 4) to the alpaca and emu farm north of Sumrall (~mile 30), stopping for a meal in Sumrall. This route hits the trail highlights without the extended riding to Prentiss or the urban streets of Hattiesburg.
Past Sumrall, you’ll find gas stations and stores in Bassfield (mile 33) and Prentiss (mile 45) that will fill your belly or wet your whistle, but nothing to write home about. Carson (mile 38) only has restrooms and primitive camping at the Carson Station.
