Experience a close-up of the “Mighty Mississippi” as you bike along the 4.31-mile stretch of the levee alongside the river. The path extends from the end of the one-mile riverfront promenade in Downtown Baton Rouge and continues south past Skip Bertman Drive at LSU to Farr Park.

The 15-foot-wide path includes separate lanes for cyclists and walkers/joggers, as well as lighting, seating and water fountains. A trailhead with parking is located under the Mississippi River Bridge near the start of the levee path and another is located at Skip Bertman Drive.

Make the most of your time in Baton Rouge by exploring Louisiana’s history at Capitol Park Museum. Then, relax at Windrush Gardens, where rich-hued florals grow year-round.
