This phase of the trail extends from the east side of Valero Refinery in Meraux to the Violet Canal in Violet. Construction will include a 10 ft. wide asphalt path on top of the Mississippi River levee and a handicapped accessible ramp and trailhead near the Violet Canal terminus.

Planning assistance was provided by the Regional Planning Commission for Jefferson, Orleans, Plaquemines, St. Bernard, St. Charles, St. John the Baptist, St. Tammany and Tangipahoa Parishes. The project also includes a trailhead and access ramp that will be located on property donated by the Meraux Foundation.
