New Basin Canal Trail

New Basin Canal Trail New Orleans Orleans Parish


The historic New Basin Canal, commonly called New Basin, is now a long walking/bicycling trail. The canal is long since filled in and is now host to walkers, joggers, and bikers on a daily basis. The beautifully-landscaped trail is a central attraction of the Lakeview and West End neighborhoods, as it goes right down the line between the two, where the canal used to run.
