Ridgeland Cycling Trails
The Chisa Foka Multi-Use Trail is a route for cyclists to utilize through the Ridgeland area of the historic Natchez Trace Parkway. The path is over 14 miles and travels from Harbor Drive to Rice Road to Highland Colony Parkway near the Natchez Trace Parkway. Several side trails bring users of the path to schools, shops and businesses.
The Ridgeland Trails for mountain biking offer ten miles of fast single track with unusual rolling hills and rock formations. These trails are great for medium to advanced cyclists.
The Magnolia Ridge BMX Park hosts races on weekends in the spring. "Mag Ridge" also hosts races every Saturday, as well as open practice on Tuesday nights at 5:00 pm. Rider groups from novice all the way to expert are welcome!
When to Ride in Ridgeland
Ridgeland is home to the Natchez Trace Century Ride, a scenic bike ride on the beautiful Natchez Trace Parkway. This race offers several distance options (25, 50, 62, or 100 miles) and is perfect for all ages and ability levels. If you'd like to explore "The Trace" on your own, be sure to review the safety information before you hit the road! Any day is a good day for a ride!
