Summary:
Reviews to the trail are accurate. However there is new, great news. BRAMBA, the local club, rebuilt two bridges, so the entire course is open.

Summary:
This is a great singletrack with lots of terrain to ride for a main course.If you're still hungry and can find a way across the ditch behind the Goatpath there is the Hardtail loop. There are two entrances. Take the one on the left. You will exit on the right.Pick some Blackberries down in the powerlines for dessert on your way to Comite down the connection trail along the bayou.

Summary:
I travel with my work and try to do some research on the local trails where I will be going. This one is a jackpot!!! Winding and twisting with little climbing. My SS was very happy here. Lots for the trail run near a scary looking swamp!

Obviously a lot of work being done. I could see new loads of churt added to wet spots.

Recommended Route:
Hook up with a local or scout out on your own.

Very rarely will you see another soul at this place.You might see the bayou big foot or the swamp thing yeti if you're lucky.

Summary:
Trail system is actually 2 separate trails.

1. Comite: Comite is a fast trail with both a beginner and expert loop. Recently, another quarter mile or so was added by BRAMBA (www.bramba.org) to bring the expert lap up to right around 5.5 miles.

2. Hooper: Hooper is a bit more technical trail and depending on the path you take can be from 8 to 12+ miles. This is a very fun trail and because it is so different than the Comite trail, gives you a different kind of ride.

Over all being a native to the area we are VERY lucky to have the trails and the people who spend ALOT of their time keeping them maintained!

Recommended Route:
I recommend taking the RED arrows (expert), there is alot of really great scenery. Even if you aren't an expert, you can walk the really tough stuff.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
N.O. Spillway trail

Summary:
I rode this trail system for the first time this past weekend. This system has routes for advanced and beginner riders. I found that the trail was not marked very well and I often turned onto the beginner route by mistake. I rode the course the day after a heavy rain so some of the technical parts were eroded. If this trail was properly maintained and marked I would recommend it. Since it wasn't when I rode it I would skip it and head for Comite.

Recommended Route:
Skip Hooper and go to Comite.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Comite
