Mountain Biking Stoner Park

***   Add a review
#44 of 50 mountain bike trails in Louisiana
#11591 in the world

The first section is pretty tame and flat. Nice smooth single track getting tighter as you go
deeper into the woods. There are 3 seperate loops, red, yellow and green. They are all about
the same difficulty. Just as you think you have ridden all the loops on this side, follow the trail
detour, up and around the construction under the bridge to access the rest of the trails. These
are a little more challenging. It's not that big of an area, so it's hard to get lost. You will always
come out close to the Fant Parkway.

Getting there
From downtown Shreveport, take Clyde Fant Memorial Parkway south just a couple of miles. It will be on the left, next to the river. Look for a park with a boat launch. Trails will be on your right as you approach the boat launch. You can ride a bike/running path along the river to the trails as well.

    In recent years the Red River has been flooding annually but right now these trails are, for the most part, restored. And cut Singletrack with flow, packed soil and a good view in an otherwise urban environment. The getaway is moments from the middle of town. Get out there before you need a kayak and end up waiting until next year.

    These trails have been in pretty bad disrepair until fairly recently. Someone has been spending a lot of time clearing brush and building bridges/ramps. It's a pretty fun trail and connects to the paved paths. Some of it was closed due to recent flooding but I could tell whoever has been clearing the trail is working hard to reopen them. Pretty fun trail; quick and easy to access with several trails to take depending on how much time you have.

    Basicly its 5-6 miles, elongateed trail next to west? Side of red river. If you pull out of wooded area, i guess its longer. Its nice. I guess, in louisiana, most of the hilly trails are in river basins. Similar terain to hooper/ comite

    My first actual "singletrack". I used to ride these all the time as a kid but just now getting back to it. Was pretty fun and it was pretty upkept. There were a few parts with logs that were obviously not part of the trail that I had to move to the side, and several parts where you had no clear indication if you were on a trail or not. Overall though i enjoyed it thoroughly. Great trail to get get back into this!

    Not bad for a beginner trail. Climbs are short and not steep. It was alright. There are some decent bridges throughout to get you across creeks and such. There are jumps as well, small ones, but jumps none the less. This place has more potential, just needs the time and people to make it happen. Out of all the ridding I have done, this place gave me a flat, bring extra tubes for the briers. Overall, it's ok for what's around here.* Review edited 8/4/2012

    Decent beginner level singletrack, The trails running beside the river are loaded with poison ivy so just out and back on the trails away from the river.

    Well lets see where to begin, I rode this trail two days ago and it is completely destroyed and messed up. The flooding of the river has completely destroyed this park and made it a grown up mess. The trails are almost completely faded and all the ramps and MTB bridges are torn apart not to mention the homeless people that flood that area. This trail was prolly a 5 out of 5 back in its prime but has withered down to a 2 and thats being generous. The trail is great for looking at wildlife that is if you enjoy looking at water moccasins, misquotes, and huge spiders. I really do hope this trail gets fixed up though because the remnants of it looked to have been very fun.

    I love this trail. This is where I got hooked on mountain biking. As of late 2007, the trails were not marked all that well. I never knew exactly where I was going once I made my way to the trails away from the river, but I always managed to come out alive. There are several entrances to the trails off of the paved Clyde Fant trail, but the main entrance is at the boat parking lot. There are several BMX style jumps, which I'm not about to try. This trail was one of my favorite memories of living in Shreveport.
