Still trying to figure out my blister issue, but got in about a 7 mile loop. Some hiking trail, some bike trail, some horseback trail. Really enjoyed it.

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.

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!

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.

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.
