2012 saw the finish of years of hard work to make Oxford’s roads bike friendly. Now there are miles of bike paths for the road bike enthusiast as well as a number of mountain bike trails, all within a stones throw from town.

Road Routes

Oxford has a number of road routes and a Pathways Commission that is dedicated to keeping the road safer for cyclists. To find out more about the Pathways Commission and see maps of different routes, please view the Lafayette Oxford University Pathways Map

South Campus Rail Trail
Formerly known as the Whirlpool Trails or Thacker Mountain Rail Trail, the South Campus Rail Trail is a network of single tracks trails adjacent to the Ole Miss campus and easy cycling distance from downtown Oxford. Access to the trails is from the rail bed at the end of Coliseum Dr./Front St.

Maps and more information can be found at the South Campus Rail Trail on  the Ole Miss Campus Recreation website.

Clear Creek Trail
The Clear Creek Trail is a 30 minute drive from Oxford located near Clear Creek Landing by Sardis Lake.
