31 miles (roundtrip)
out and back
• Designated for foot or mountain
biking traffic only.
• Accessible by road at several points, making it possible to ride shorter sections for those who do not wish to ride the entire length of the trail in one outing.
Traversing flat to rolling terrain, the trail winds through pine hills and hardwood bottoms, passing through managed forest areas, clearings, and untouched areas as well. For example, visitors can enjoy the Castor Creek Scenic Area, a 90-acre site where large pine and hardwood trees are left in their natural state. In fact, all 6 of the vegetation communities present on the Evangeline Unit of the Calcasieu Ranger District are found along the trail; bottomland hardwoods, upland hardwoods, mixed pine and hardwoods, pure pine, bogs and natural open areas.
