Trail Description
About this trail
The trail is a challenge mainly for it's distance. The first 4 or five mile section (riding the trail clockwise) is fairly technical, it then is a nice singletrack with a few short hills. It is very well marked, but bring water and food (none on the trail), the whole loop will take about 3 hours.

Review: Started at south landing which is the first trailhead after entering park. The first 4 miles were very tough...after that rode until mile 8. Good exercise. I'll start on mile 8 when I go back to experience all off it.

Review: This trail is terrable and cool. Some of the bridges are amazing and fun but the trail as a whole is no good. Most of it was intended to get to primitive camping. During the summer, if the trail is dry, you will encounter thousands of spiders and their webs. Rode just a few miles and had to get 8 of them out of my helmet and we are not talking about small spiders either. When the spiders are not around, you are lucky to find the trail dry. There is a section that goes through a dranage ditch atleast six times. Good luck finding it dry. This leads to a suspension bridge you need to cross. It was intended to for hikers and impossible to ride onto and across. Other parts are just swamp and hold water for a long time. It is just not worth the trip.

Review: I have made it from mile 1-10 and miles1-2 are the hardest with steep hill climb. Miles 2-4 are a little easier but not much. From 4-10 its just fun. Having a blast learning these trails.

Review: Fun trail. Started at mile marker 8 and went counter clockwise. Long trail that will give you a little bit of everything. At this time of the year there was a decent amount of mud, at one point there is about 1/4 mile of it. Have fun!

Review: Chicot is a fun, relaxing ride. The trail is not very challenging or technical but more of an endurance trail, easy to get some miles in. The trail is well maintained and well marked.

Review: WARNING: Starting at mile 5 there is a constant barrage of spider webs with palm size spiders every 5-8 yards. I had to walk another 2 miles before reaching an exit with no break from spider webs. Lots of stick throwing and profanity. This seems to only happen during the summer months. During the Winter, this is one of the better Louisiana trails. You've been warned!

Review: Excellent trail. Glad we started at the South Trailhead. The first four miles were pretty tough. Great views and boardwalks. Definitely recommend. Saw 5 armadillos! There are some nice primitive campgrounds along the trail that would be fun to hike or bike to.

Review: Great trail system! Rode the entire 20 miles and it was a blast. No problems with banana spiders at all. Stay in one of the Deluxe Cabins on the lake and ride your bike straight to one of the trail heads.
