The Comite Side

Average Rating:    (4.42 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 12

VERY well kept, lots of drops and climbs, a couple parts are really cool:

the table top-you go down a hill and hit a nice table top

the naturel bowl-like a cement bowl but its all dirt

the beach trail-about a 30yd sand ride

newtons drop- almost a 90 degree drop for about 25ft

the rollercoaster- a tight series of drops and climbs

Summary:
This was my first time riding this trail and the first time my seven year old was ever went off road. It was a bit much for him in several area, but he still had a good time. We will be going back soon. The trail was well maintained and the whole park was great. It has a pavilion and restrooms (clean too!) at the trail head. With the new connection to the Hooper trail you could spend the whole day out here.

Summary:
The trail is great for starters. It can be fast and has some technical sections if you leave the main trail. The sport expert section is short but fun, its not that bad just make yourself do it. Make sure you take the connection trail to hooper. To get to the connection trail go counter-clockwise and stay right till you get to the creek and there is a sign.

Summary:
Went out today, March 11, 2005, and the trail was great. The nice thing about Comite is that you can get lost without really being lost. Sure, you might ride around in circles for a bit, but just work out which way it is towards the lake, and you're back in the game.

The X Trail, River Run and Beach trail are all kick ass right now. I love Skidmark Drop, really woke me up for the first time in a few months. BRAMBA has done a great job with this trail.

Recommended Route:
Counterclockwise, and stay "in the red."

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Hooper for giggles, Bonne Carre for frustration

Summary:
Rode Comite this past Saturday, 4/24/2004, with my son and we had a blast. Hats off to BRAMBA for the excellent trail maintance and first class facilities. There is a nice sign on the higway at the entrance to the parking lot, plenty of parking, a bike wash area, a covered picnic area with tables and benches, and best of all clean bathrooms. Their bulletin board in the parking lot displaying the map of the trail and other useful information is also first class and always up to date. The trail is very well marked with different colored arrows that designate the level of difficulty for each section. You can bypass harder areas by following the blue arrows or ride the expert trail by following the red arrows. There are also crossovers or bypasses designated with yellow arrows. Trail conditions were nearly perfect. Dirt was pretty well packed and there were only a few loose, sandy areas. One of the drops had a little water in the bottom of it and there were plenty of caterpillers in the trees. Seems like every tree you looked at had 20 or 30 caterpillers crawling around on it. They were even crawling around on my truck in the parking lot. It is supposed to be a bad year for them. Luckliy we didn't get stung by any of them. Otherwise the trail was perfect. They had even added a couple of sections since the last time I was there a few months ago. The total length of the trail is now approximately 5.5 miles. I rode it twice with my son and once by myself. It was his first mountain bike ride and my first ride on my new 2004 Jamis Dakar XLT 3.0 so we took it easy. He got tired out after two rides and I didn't want to push him. So I rode it again by myself a little faster to really see what the Jamis could do. It was a great ride. Bike performed flawlessly. My son said that he had a great ride and I think I have a new riding partener. I live in New Orleans so we don't get to ride the trail too often as it is about a two hour drive for us. But if you are in the area and get a chance to ride Comite don't pass it up. It is well worth your time.

Recommended Route:
Check the sign as you leave the parking lot on your way to the trail head. BRAMBA designates which way to ride the trail each month, either clockwise or counterclockwise. There is also a sign at the trailhead that shows which way is clockwise and which way is counterclockwise.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Hooper Park Trail across the highway from Comite, Clear Springs in Bude Mississippi near McComb, and the Bonnet Carre Spillway in Norco Louisiana.

Summary:
Very fun trail. It isn't very long, and I got turned around a few times, so I was hitting some of the same stuff over and over, but it was cool b/c it was fun stuff. After riding it for a while we went out to get oriented and look at the map. And realized we missed about a 1/3 of the trails. Do not ride the river run, i think, after a hard rain, and some of the downhills can get very slippery and dangerous because of the clay. This trail isn't a cross-country one, but it defintely is a fun change of pace.

Recommended Route:
Just ride around for a while, the trails are marked but it still is confusing for a first timer, I finally figured out where everything was at the end of the day. All the red trails are fun.
