The Longleaf  Trace Trail is paved, 10 feet wide, and at a length of 41 miles, is the longest rail-trail in the south central US.  Currently, the trail runs from Prentiss to the University of Southern Mississippi campus in Hattiesburg. There are plans to extend the trail to downtown Hattiesburg. A 26 mile horse path parallels the Trace from Carson to Eply Station. The trail runs through Piney Woods country, named for the vast forests of pine that grow between Jackson and the Gulf Coast. Most users report that the Longleaf Trail is quite scenic, and nicely shaded.

From Interstate 59 go west on U.S. Highway 98 (Hardy Street) past Turtle Creek Mall about two miles to Gravel Pit Road. Turn right (north) on Gravel Pit Road at Lake Serene Grocery and Amoco. Gravel Pit Road will wind around and dead-end at 4th Street. Turn left (west) on 4th Street, then take the first right on Jackson Road. Jackson Station will be on your left in one-quarter mile.
