Beautiful trail! Well marked and there’s a lot to see. The only down side is that I went after a day of rain and the trail was muddy/sandy in some areas. Overall a great trail that’s easy for anyone to hike and it shows the diversity that the Kisatchie Forest contains.

First more serious hike. The parts where the trail became uncertain, there was always a marker close by. Some of the hills were fairly difficult, but overall was a moderate hike. Beautiful, not entirely well maintained, however nothing was an issue with getting through the trail.

It’s a beautiful easy hike, it doesn’t take a whole lot of commitment of time or equipment, perfect day hike

This trail is a shit-hole. Poorly maintained, and poorly marked. Run Backbone if you want a real challenge.

Nice out and back trail with good opportunities for birdwatching, foraging, and camping. At points the road joins the trail causing a bit more trash to show up, but overall very accessible, peaceful, and well-maintained.

Great day hike! I will be back!

Favorite place in Louisiana. I’ve been going here since I was a kid.

First time hiking this. Our dachshund came along with my husband and me and was easy enough even her. If you’re not in great shape, it’s definitely better to take the right hand side of the trail. You have steep steps, and a lot of them, going down. We lucked up taking that path, I would have died had I had to come up them at the end of the hike lol.

Used to love riding around the whole area both the ranger district and the logging roads in my jeep with the top down. Miss those days. The main road and several others are the only ones paved. The dirt roads in the district are taken care of really well. Don’t go on the logging roads without 4 wheel drive though.

Mostly flat and crosses over a few park roads.

Great place for a short hike with some of the most rugged terrain in Louisiana and the only place you’ll see sandstone boulders in the state.

Beautiful trail, but be prepared for a hilly hike. We have been hiking about 13 mikes at other trails and having no problems and then tried this trail today and saw a big difference on our endurance level. Much slower pace due to the up and down path. Will hike this trail again for the scenery and physical challenge.

This is not a trail. It’s just a long road in a forest. I’m not sure if I’m missing something but I drove for miles and it was just a road. We were very disappointed.

Beautiful trail! Easy to follow, with moderately challenging landscapes. Perfect for a one night stay back packing trail.

This trail has awesome potential, just needs some love. I've been clearing for the last few weeks and have about 3.5 miles of it cleaned up. This trails gonna be awesome when it's done!

Absolutely amazing! If you enjoy atv trail riding then you must visit this trail. I rode the trail on my 300ex and i would recommend using a sport quad like that, although any atv would work
