Neat loop walking trail in the city. The outside loop is 1 mile and there is also a cut-through with a long bridge. Park is kept up very well. You can park in the lot behind interstate dodge off of Downing Pines, it has bathrooms, water fountains, pavilion with grills.

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.

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

Great trail lots of wildlife and the gorge had some nice views. Needs a few trail markers. The park staff were very helpful pointing out the right paths.

good trail covienitly located near shreveport. very nice discovery room at entrance of trail. good views of lake. only downside is we were trying to complete a full loop but could not because the path turned to swamp and it hasn't rained in a month so I believe it is always this way. I wouldn't cross without rain boots its about 3 inches deep and very muddy.

Neat trail 5.5 mile that wraps around one of the lakes. There’s another trail “Lost Lady” you’ll see at the end of the dam that’s about 2 miles. It’s difficult with hills. Both trails were nice.

Nice trail for any hiker. Lots of wildlife. Not very difficult to navigate.

I parked at the trailhead and walked under the sign. The trail immediately came to a Y. The arrows with bikes pointed left. I 'assumed' then that hikers should go right. I ended up walking a 3-mile additional loop back to the trailhead. The trail was easy to follow. Sandy and hard clay. It would be muddy if after a recent rain. Water at the park near the trailhead. No water on the trail. No creeks or lakes. So take first left after the sign for a short 3-mile alternative.

Good trail. Did it with two kids and a friend. Not a lot of water right now so bring plenty.

Hiked the Backbone trail again last week with my daughter. this was her first overnight backpacking trip. We only spent one night on trail but it was great fun. Didn't see much wildlife and temps were in the high 80's during the day but dropped quickly after the sun went down. Other than that it was the same os my first review below.
