Review: Well maintained trail and a bargain for $2.00. There were plenty of people of all ages and skills. The trail does have some nice flowing sections with a little speed for fun. There are lots of cutbacks and roots to navigate, state parks frown on cutting almost anything. The trail is to be shared with runners and hikers. It is a beautiful and fun trail....come and enjoy the ride soon.

Review: We drove out from Oklahoma to tour the best trails the south has to offer. I will say, Lincoln Parish did not disappoint! Well taken care of trails with endless flow and a sprinkle of man made objects to mix things up. The trails are well taken care of and well marked. The scenery was stellar; pine needles blanket the ground while trails flow in and out of the tree line, zipping around and over creek and water crossings. The trail runs fast and flowy, with a few technical features, but nothing a strong beginner or intermediate couldn't handle. Worth every bit of driving to see this place!

Review: Definitely the best trail in Louisiana and a fun ride for any skill level. This trail is rode clockwise, and ends with a big decent. Very flowy with a few good jumps and switchbacks. Suggest taking with as much speed as possible.

Review: I was in Shreveport for a few days and decided to make the trip to Ruston and try out this trail. It was very flowy. There were some climbs and descents. Overall it was a ton of fun.

Review: So... I decided to try this trail for the first time on the hottest day of the year on July 21st. I had a job in the area the next day, so I brought my bike along, and I do not regret that! Honestly, I'm not sure where the trail head starts, but I parked by the lake, and rode up the "Tree Trail" and found the "Creek Crossing," and dove right in. This trail is a challenge, especially if you are used to flow trails. A lot more roots, bumps, and climbing switch backs. But with great punishment, comes great rewards, as in long straight declines, and some fun drop offs. The heat killed me that day, I wasn't ready for 102 degrees and 87% humidity, but I had a blast. Will defiantly go out of my way, and try again. Cost 2$ for park entry, that gives you all day access. A nice touch is a bike wash station by the lake that you can hose off your bike, and muddy legs! To see my full ride... https://youtu.be/EzSgwqTRyeI

Review: Fantastic trail! It gets progressively more steep and technical the further you get, but nothing ridiculous. Quite a few roots, but none that are too huge or crazy. Most of the climbs are very easy/moderate. A few tight switchbacks toward the end. Overall, this trail is very fun. Not too hard, but just hard enough to be fun and interesting.

Similar Trail: Slightly tougher version of Mt. Zion if I had to explain it.

Review: I don't know if it gets much better than this in Louisiana, the trail is fun and beautiful scenery. There is a varying types of terrain with technical, downhills and jumps. Nothing too crazy or advanced, just a good ride. The beginner cuts make it easy to loop around to hit your favorite parts again and again.

Review: As stated by others, a great trail that includes a shorter loop for beginners. The full loop includes an abundance of roots, climbs, descents and creek crossings. Maybe the best maintained trail I have ridden. In addition to many directional signs there are caution signs before all salty areas. Ignore them at your own peril. The ride gets progressively tougher featuring some nice descents and climbs, including a stretch with a few switchbacks. Big fun!!!
