Review: I'd heard about this trail while riding with some MS friends here in AR. I finally got to see for myself en route to family Christmas is FL. Wow! I Never imagined something like this in Mississippi. Nice trailhead with bike wash, a covered pavilion with chairs, a firepit and even a fridge. The locals were super nice. Said we could use the fridge for our drinks and there was a popsicle in the fridge when we finished! Even got a cell# to msg anytime for current conditions. The main loop is 9 miles with many well-made wooden features.(I lost count at 35). some short, a couple over 125 ft long. There are several jumps, but they are all well marked and have by-passes if you don't want to leave the ground. One cool feature on most of the 'jumps' is a landing ramp that you can jump totally jump over, or if slow rolling, just drop a few inches to the catch-ramp and keep rolling. There are several really nice dirt and wooden berms. This trail really flows well. Not as much climbing as back home in Little Rock but there are a few hills, definitely not flat! All the climbs are rewarded with some fun stuff after. You can tell a lot of time went into building this trail. It is very well marked with directional arrows and mile markers. It was well maintained. I was there during December after a rain, but the trail was in remarkable shape. I suggest one lap to get a feel for the trail and all the features, and then another lap to let r rip! Absolutely one of the most fun trails I've ever ridden. So much fun I left my family Christmas one day early to ride it again on the way back home. Can't wait to take my AR boys back to this one! Look this one up, they have a facebook page. Definitely worth the trip from anywhere.

Review: This trail was extremely fun, I am 12 years old and had a great time on the 6 mile trail. The extra objects on the trail made me keep going. When my family and I rode the trail it was wet but we still had a blast. Every small uphill is rewarded by a great downhill and there really are none that we could not handle. If I can I would love to come back to this great trail in the future.

Love the squirrely hill, ewok. And v loop. Met the guy that built the trail and he was really a super nice man. We would travel a couple of hours at least to ride this again.

Review: Yes they are at it again. The local super star trail crew building a new low bridge that allows you to keep your speed up before a couple of nice berms that sling you to a tough hill. Johnny and friends keep looking for areas to improve the trail system....Thanks Thanks Thanks

Review: Really fun trail. I rode it when it was still a little wet, so when it's dry it must be really, really fun. Will definitely go back. Possibly the best trail closest to New Orleans.

Review: I heard about this trail through many riders and shops in Texas and Louisiana.
This trail is nothing short of awesome. I rode this in September not too hot but just right. It has about 30 wooden structures and some are jumps over creeks. (be careful) This trail is blue and black as far as technically hard. Lots of cool stuff to see in here. The plastic dog did scare the hell out of me. Don't forget to sign the jeans when you go through and there is a selfie mirror. I plan on many more trips to this trail.
I love this trail! It brought me nothing but joy and a solid beating to my legs. This trail is a must ride for any rider! It is on private land. It has a shed with a fridge and power to charge your devices.I happened to bring my juicer. Also a port o potty. You can also camp overnight and there is a donation box.
happy trails!
