Trail is actually a system of 3 loops. There are a few elevation changes, but nothing over a few meters. Trail can be fairly technical in some places with switchbacks, bridges over the swamp, and the roots running across the trail. Maps can be obtained at the main gate ($2 day-use fee), trailhead, or Interpretive Center. To get any kinda mileage/time on the bike, ride all three loops. Depending on the "dampness" of the trail near the beaver lodges, one may want to take advantage of the "Drier Alternate Route" thru the "Boy Scout Area". Entire trail can get kinda wet, this is South Louisiana after all. Good trail for beginner confidence boost. And a blast for anyone who wants to test their suspension.
