Trails, Parks and Cycling

Let's Get Some Fresh Air

Ridgeland is Mississippi's premier destination for cycling. And not just because we're on the Natchez Trace Parkway. Multi-use trails, BMX tracks and cycling events roll into our bike-friendly culture. But the fun isn't just for those on two wheels. We've got plenty of parks for jogging, walking and sports.

Pedal to the Metal

Ride for miles on the winding Natchez Trace, right along the water's edge, and you'll see why Ridgeland is a biker's paradise.
