Comite Park Trail

Average Rating:    (4.2 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 10

Comite Park is within riding distance of Hooper Road Park. BREC and BRAMBA have teamed together on a TEA21/RTP grant to pay for many improvements at the Comite Trailhead, including a new parking lot, bike wash, and pavilion. Look for the green gate just past Comite Estates subdivision. Comite Park boasts miles of sweet singletrack trails with varying terrain suitable for beginners and experts alike.

Three miles of scenic beauty are located at the Comite River Bike Trail, which runs along the banks of the Comite River and Cypress Bayou. The new connection trail allows for rides as long as 20 miles!

The trail is hilly with some steep terrain. More trails will be developed on this site in the near future. There are some free ride doubles and some very technical areas.

Summary:
For S. Louisiana, this is a fabulous, terrific, fun and amazing trail. I think you've gotta rate a trail based on where it is, and it doesn't get much better than this in the BTR area. And if you've ridden the few meager and swamp infested trails near Lafayette you know what I am talking about .

This trail has fast sections, steep little hills, curves , berms, bowls, and all sorts of other technical and cool features. if you're an experienced rider or a beginner you will have a blast on this trail, but an inexperienced rider should be prepared for walking up several of the very steep little hills here. Not a problem. Its part of mtb .

My only caution here is that if it's your first or second or third time here , bring a map. If you don't , you WILL get lost. Many forks, turns, and offshoots to send you in directions where you'll end up having no clue where you are...and if you go during the week when there are not many other riders on the trail , you won't have much help getting out of this place.

Bottom line... Bring a map and blast off onto one of the finest trails that S. Louisiana has to offer.

Summary:
Truly one of the most fun XC trails I have ridden. It has little to no elevation, but it has tons of quick ups and downs (5 mile bmx track) The entire trail takes about 35 minutes to ride once you learn it. It has a few berms, a fun little jumpy section called "the bowl", a few small climbs (20-30' long slight increase), and few steeper (10' tall climbs), some fun very large logs to cross and a very nicely setup table top.
Everyone is friendly out there, and as everyone mentioned, look out for critters. There is a nice bike wash just before the parking lot as well.
If you go when it's warm, the mosquitoes can be devastating. You will inhale a ton of them, and if you stop, you will get mobbed.
I wouldn't travel to ride this trail, but every time I am in town I will make time, or go out of my way to ride it.

Recommended Route:
The red trail is friendly enough for anyone who has been on a bike a bit.
I would take the red trail.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Baton Rouge really only has this one trail. Hooper road is close, but I consider them the same trail system.

Summary:
Great trail within the city limits of Baton Rouge! Being in Baton Rouge you'd probably think that this trail would be flat as the rest of our elevation deprived state. BUT NO! this baby has got ups and downs, berms and jumps, drops, climbs. There isn't a lot but its got it. I think the land the trail sits on was carved out by the river so the trail winds through old water channels that give it the small amount of elevation change it has. Trail is about 4.5 miles long without the connection trail which brings you to the hooper trail system which is quite boring compared to comite.

Recommended Route:
Ride the whole trail, don't take the old faded shortcuts, stay on the beaten path. It will take a couple rides to get used to where to go but just follow the red or blue arrows painted on the trees.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Hooper - Right next to comite but not as fun, take the connection trail to hooper for a good long xc ride.

The Beast in St. Francisville - (45min drive from baton rouge) Nice trail system with more elevation than comite, but some parts of the are just really difficult and non-flowy.

Norco - (1hr)

Lake Kincaid in Alexandria - (2 hours?)

Clear Springs in the Homochitta National Forest - (1h45min) Great trail system, tons of elevation, big climbs, big descents.

Mt. Zion-Brookhaven, MS - (1hr45min) My Favorite trial within descent driving distance of Baton Rouge. Berms, wooden structures, jumps, good elevation.

Summary:
This is a great trail with lots of little hills, twists and turns. A real jewel of the nile. Watchout for snakes basking in the sun on the mogels. If it gets dark lightening bugs will lead you down the correct pathway out. Hopefully. Or you and the mosquitos will be spending the night snuggled up in the bowl.

Summary:
This trail offers a little something for everyone. It's what got me back into riding. Once you can ride both trails via the connection trail, you will not regret it! My advice is to ride it as much as possible to get to know them. BREC and BRAMBA have done a great job of making the most out of the land available. The only downside to riding here is all the damn rain. Bridges, cliffs, and entire sections of trail have disappeared after a single thunderstorm! If you have the chance you should ride it, besides it's free.

In July my advice is to get some light setup and nightride.Unless you're scared of the dark then I would not suggest it.
