Was a good clean trail . Follow the red markers for biking .
We love this trail always well maintained and somethings we can even hear the Monkeys at Chimp Haven. My boys like it along with our two dogs.
Ride CCW. The more technical section is in the last mile or so of the loop. Lots of fun. One of the better trails around.
Very well maintained every time we go. Nice easy nature trail.
This trail made me feel like I was in Planet of the Apes! It is so awesome to hear the chimps in the background. It is challenging at times with all the ups and downs but that's the fun part of hiking. We got lost halfway through and followed the horse trail but it was still fun. It's great and worth the time!
We had a great time. Trails were challenging at times. They were well maintained. The bathroom facilities were nice and clean
Very good trails, some ups and downs, clean walking with easily marked trails
The trail as shown on the above map is 8 miles - not 5.5 miles. As others have mentioned, the trail markers are random and confusing. Other than that, it was a well balanced trail with different terrain and some beautiful scenery. Took us just under 3 hours to complete. Happy trails!
Trail itself has a beautiful setting/scene, but I was frustrated by how haphazard some of the markers seemed. At about mile 4, the signs for hiking seemed to disappear entirely; after that, it the the main horse trail with the occasional path marked for bikers. The fact that the horse trail is NOT one way made the trail even more confusing. Ended up getting lost and following the horse trail until I hit the gravel road.
I tried to get the directions for this but it won't pull it up for me no address or anything if anyone could help me please message me on my Facebook Angela Richard White thanks so much !
Beautiful area but the trails are marked what appears to be random. you come to a lot of forks in the trails that are not marked. came across a guy bow hunting...that was interesting
Trail is well maintained and is definitely a workout either hiking or biking. I usually follow the red markers, which are more challenging, until I get tired and then hike the green ones. Bring plenty of water!
Trail was well maintained but some trail markers were a little confusing. Definitely a good workout lots of elevation changes especially for Louisiana and the trail was mostly shaded.
Great trail but I wish there was a map at the
Great trail. Shaded and lots of trail markings but wish they had a map at the trailhead
Had a lot of fun on this trail, I cut my route short and completed 8 miles (my dog was tired). The trail isn't extremely technical, and is only rooty in some areas depending on the type of trees that are growing. It's neat how the forest changes so vastly over a few miles. After about the fourth mile you begin intersecting with horse trail, which wasn't too rutted up from the horses, the trail jogs on and off the horse trail for a few miles. I followed the red signs, I imagine the 5 mile loop that is referred to in the overview is the trail if you follow the green markers which appear to take several bypasses. There weren't any other bicyclists or people on the trail so my dog didn't bother anyone, I recommend a thorough check for ticks even if your animal is medicated for them.
I had a lot of fun! initially it felt like I was on the set of Planet of the Apes as all the chimpanzees were screaming and causing quite an uproar.
Entire trail is a little more than 10 miles long.
