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.

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.

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.

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

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!

Customer Service

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.

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.

Customer Service

Skip Hooper and go to Comite.

This is my second time on this trail system. I must say that it has improved since my last visit. Mostly due to the fact that this time I found the Comite section. My first time I only rode the Hooper section. The Hooper section is cleaner but it still lacks markings so you end up doing things twice. The terrain is eroded which makes the technical section a little more difficult. I did find a section where I could do a sweet jump. Overall this section is average and not in par with the Comite side. Once I found the Comite side I thought that I was a world away from the previous trail. I actually rode it twice since I was pleasantly surprised. It has some technical areas but nothing I would call difficult. Ride this trail as fast as you can and it gets better. I even enjoyed the tabletop jump a lot. Got about three feet of air off of it. Next time I come in town I will go straight to Comite and not waste my time with Hooper. Great work on the Comite side.

Customer Service

Comite only. Three times as fast as you can. Watch out for the spiders.

It's the best we have in this part of the state. From where I live, anyway. Look for the table top jump and the two "bowls". I call them Little Bowl and Big Bowl. I'm not sure what the actual names are since I don't get out there much with the locals. Collar Bone Alley is the part to ride. Lots of little climbs that are fun to master. Going down is even better.

Customer Service

Collar Bone Ally. Follow all red markers and get ready to rock.

I'll give it 5 stars since it's 1 of only 3 trails that I have ridden.

This is ten miles of great single track in the city of baton rouge. You can get two hours or more riding in this area. Recommend !!!

Customer Service

Take the main trail to collar bone alley trail.Then go to the goat trail. Then back on collar bone to the power line trail follow it to the dirt pit. Through the dirt pit and under the bridge to the connection trail take it down to mt rushmore.Then take it to the gravel road into the woods take a left to get on the beach trail around to the jumps then continue around to the bowl then out on the cypress trail.

Go to the bowl and the table top. period. huge air and serious drops. only 4 tires because there is no endurance riding and too hard to follow one trail without getting lost.
