I've ridden this trail only a few times over the past 5 years, a little here and a little there. Lately, I've really taken to the whole thing and falling in love with it. I've ridden many, many places around the globe and this trail is great. The flow is well routed, and except for the low areas that can get nasty after much rain, it has everything. Climbs, a few sketchy descents, bridges, roots, rocks, and even gravel roads. It has the right amount of forest road access and straight sections of speed built in the trail. Really feels like isolated backcountry. It's like your typical southern pine forest, however half seem to be oaks. Out of the rich foliage, wildflowers erupt providing great scenery and on some sections leave you forgetting that you're actually in Louisiana. The trail is well marked, and I mean well marked. Even if grass gets a little tall, it's easy to tell where to go. The are additions coming along to add to the trail. It's a shame that Chris doesn't get more help. For those who are able and have base access, it's a real shame if you don't check this place out and help with it. Just lot's of scenery and many places to access the trail and bail off. Truly a treasure to have on a base. Where else can you be secluded out in the wilderness with a B-52 flying low-level over?
