TRAILS, PARKS & CYCLING
Ridgeland is Mississippi's premier destination for cycling and not just because we're on the Natchez Trace Parkway. Multi-use walking and biking 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.
