Welcome to the intersection of Bassfield, MS and the Longleaf Trace. After 7 years of work, the trace is now completed. The Longleaf Trace is a 10-foot wide asphalt trail that winds itself 39 miles in length from Prentiss to Hattiesburg. Especially interesting are the many exciting things that the Village Of Bassfield offers to those who are passing through. The Village Of Bassfield has put a tremendous amount of effort into making the Longleaf Trace a success. One of the things that we are proud of here in Bassfield is that our Village sits in the middle of the equestrian trail that runs from Carson to Epley, spanning 22 miles in length. So when you are passing through Bassfield, be sure and stop by and enjoy some of our delicious eating places that you see listed on our website.

The Longleaf Trace and Faler Park offer singles and families unlimited hours of healthy entertainment.  The Trace is a 48-mile paved wheelchair accessible walking, in-line skating, and cycling trail stretching from Prentiss to Hattiesburg.  Adjacent to the paved trail is an equestrian trail that runs 25 miles from Carson to Epley.  The Longleaf Trace passes through the village center and Faler Park.  Visitors to Faler Park can enjoy a cold drink at the Bassfield comfort station, picnic under the pavilion or rest in the shade of an oak.  Our equestrian friends can pause at the hitching post and water trough next to the comfort station.  Bassfield offers three paved parking lots adjacent to the trail with ample space for SUVs, trucks and trailers (convenient drive-thru access for trailers).
