Many may be surprised by the beautiful piece of the Kisatchie Forest that features rocky hills and scenic overlooks. The trail is in good shape and Fall colors give you plenty of scenery along the way. Be prepared for walking on rocky terrain, fairly steep ascents and descents, and creek crossings. Perfect for an overnighter or a long weekend. Also note that the blazes change colors but they are all the same trail. Show more

The trailhead can be seen from the Longleaf scenic byway. It eventually meets up with the Backbone trail. Kind of rough, not marked with trail markers. You are in the Kisatchie Hills Wilderness area, so no motorized vehicles or bikes. Equestrian in foot traffic only. Dogs on a leash. Some interesting views. Pretty easy hike for flatlanders. There where two routes. One went on top of the the hill the other went around it. Show more
