Summary:
I've read all of the reviews here and two words (phrases) I would not use to describe this trail system. 1) technical and 2) gut-wrenching. Gut-wrenching guy must be out of shape and Technical dude must be used to riding around the neighborhood with the wife and kids. I like the trail... don't get me wrong. The owner of the property is one heck of a nice guy. He had the trails built out of the kindness of his heart. Yes you have to pay $7 but come on...the guy's built a restroom, a shower and supplies a bike wash area. You should know that the trail closes during hunting season (beginning Thanksgiving week and ending Feb 1). For Louisiana, I'll say this is a good trail system. There is some climbing and some down hill sections but they are short-lived. There's some wash-out from rain on some of the trails and I'm guessing that's what they mean by technical. If you don't pay attention, you can end up in an endo from areas where the ground has washed out. This is a good introduction to Mtn Biking trail. I'd recommend it to anybody who has a mtn bike. I'll be back (my parents live 30 miles from the trail) if for nothing else to say hi to the owner, Gary Travis, who let me ride even though the trail was closed and who invited me in for breakfast after I was finished riding.

Recommended Route:
Exit 57 (Tangipahoa hwy 440) off of I55. Go East. Keep your eyes open because 440 will have a junction for 440... confusing..yes it is. You have to take a right then a left to stay on 440. It's easy from there... at Travis Lane, turn right.. Go to the "End of the Lane".

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Have not ridden any other trails in this areo of the country. Remember this.. Sylamore, AR. There's currently a trail system being built that will be absolutely incredible once complete. Very technical, long down-hills (and climbs if that's your game). There are some trails completed but the project is not complete (2-3 years away from total completion).

Summary:
For as flat as LA is these trails kick ass. There are a good number of double tracks (I think 8 or so). Then are about twice as many single tracks. Double tracks are fun and fast. the single tracks are just as fun to figure out as they are to ride. Sometime you might confuse the natural washout for the trail and sometimes it is the trail just have fun with it. if you get lost on a single go straight you'll hit a double track soon enough. Trail beginings are well marked by either a red arrow for double tracks or orange tape for the single tracks. Some have good jumps but they are all right before a hard right or a tree. Really fun to jump if you have good brakes otherwise you'll end up slamming into tree. Just ask my cousin. Hahaha. Some of the trails have a bit of dead fall that will test you bunny hopping skills so be ready. Again you can ask my cousin about the importance of this skill. Hahaha. Even on a wet day it is still fun, this place has mostly a clay or sandy foundation so there isn't a lot of mud. What mud is there I found and managed to fall into. Quite refreshing after riding for 30 min. Haha. End of the trail is on 400 acres of land and it's pretty hard to get lost. if you hit the creek turn around that will get you back to the begining. The trails are all under heavy tree growth so the sun doesn't beat down too hard. There is a bike wash, air compressor, a place to fill your water bottle with some of the coldest ground water south of the artice circle. They even have unisex restrooms. (wooo hoo!) Which will come in every handy after a hard night of drinking followed by an equally hard day of riding. thank God almost every trail leads to the front. The people that run tha place are really nice and help full. They have an excellent map they provide you with. I would go ride here again tomorrow if i could lots of fun and very nice place to ride with plenty of parking.
Final comment: This place is alot harder to get to than it is to get around. Since it is hard to find it doesn't seem to be ridin a whole lot so most of the trails are a little over grown at spots. But it doesn't spoil any of it. Great place!

Recommended Route:
Take I55 to exit 57 Hwy 440. Bring an indian guide or drop bread crumbs. Watch the sighs because LA road worker like to move 440 just to see if you paying attention. take a right on travis lane and go till you can't go anymore. Get out pay the man and go ride.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
None this place is about 60 miles from any other decent place to ride.

Summary:
THE MAP GIVEN TO US WAS NOT TOO HELPFULL. WE RODE IN AT THE TRAIL HEAD, DOUBLE TRACK AND ALONG THIS MAIN TRAIL THERE ARE A BUNCH OF ENTRANCES TO SINGLE TRACK TRAILS. THESE SINGLE TRACKS TAKE YOU OFF THE DOUBLE AND THEN BACK ONTO THE DOUBLE. WE JUST KIND OF GOT LOST ON THE PROPERTY UNTIL WE RODE ALL OF THE SINGLE TRACKS. THESE SINGLE TRACKS ARE NOT VERY MAINTAINED. IS SEEMS AS THOUGHT THEY HAVE NOT BEEN RIDEN IN A WHILE. THESE COULD BE VERY GOOD TRAILS. PLENTY OF TECHNICAL DOWNHILLS AND UPHILLS. DEFINATELY A GREAT WORKOUT. EACH SINGLE TRACK TAKES ABOUT 15-20 MINUTES TO COMPLETE AND THEN YOU FIND YOURSELF BACK ON THE BOUBLE TRACK. THE DOUBLE TRACK HAS SOME GRADUAL CLIMBS AND SOME COOL DOWNHILLS. DEFINATELY WORTH CHECKING OUT IF YOU HAVEN'T RIDEN THIS TRAIL BEFORE.

Recommended Route:
ENTER AT THE TRAIL HEAD (DOUBLE TRACK) AND JUST RIDE ALL THE SINGLE TRACKS.

Summary:
This is a private trail, so pay your $7. Good mix of single and double track. Lots of speed on the downhills. Lots of climbing, too. The single track is tight with small downhilling and climbing. It is well worth the money and driving time. Well maintained. The shower and bathrooms are a big plus. The technical sections are not as technical as Hooper in Baton Rouge, but you won't find any +25 mile downhills there either. I'll give it 4 stars for having to pay. 5 stars for the trail and showers. Good people own/run the place.

Recommended Route:
Ride till you get lost.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Hooper in Baton Rouge.
