End of Lane Trail - Trail, Kentwood, Louisiana

End of Lane Trail - Trail, Kentwood, Louisiana

DESCRIPTION

Lots of smooth double track with tight sigle track mixed in. It is technical on the single track as your speed increases. The double track is easy except for the gut wrenching climbs that I am not used to. Of course with the climbs comes some nice speedy downhills :) It would be a perfect trail to hold races on with a mix of the dbl. and sgl. track. Plenty of available passing on the dbl. If you want a good leg burning workout I would suggest this trail. There are also foodstuff and showers/changing rooms available also. The all important restrooms can be found there too :)

Lots of climbing and decending on smooth double tracks with some tight single track. High speeds are atainable here. A good leg burning trail. Food, restrooms, showers, changing rooms, and bike wash areas are available.

Tangipahoa exit off I-55 north take a right on 440 (left if you are going south). Go 6.2 miles and turn right on Travis lane. There will be signs to follow.

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.

Reminds me of a miniature Clear Springs. Lots of fast double track and tight single track. Some of the singles are not marked on the map, so keep your eyes open. Not real technical (so bring your girlfriend, Ha Ha, just goofing ladies!), but fun.

Customer Service

Any route is fine, with the possible exception being the one single track to the left as you are entering the park. To enjoy this one the most take the first left as you are starting and then an immediate right on the single. Sweet downhills this way and the ups aren't as brutal.

This really is a great place to ride. Not nearly as tough or intimidating as Clear Springs, Mississippi, I would have to say the word is FUN. The trails are well maintained, smooth and fast. The single tracks aren't the most technical around, but still quite enjoyable. The trail head is a major plus. They have restrooms, hot showers as well as pick nick tables, and its really a nice area. The owners are VERY nice people... they even let us use their pool one time! Check this place out for a nice weekend ride with friends and family.

Customer Service

There is a great downhill (with no sand) if you take trail 7 from trail 1. Also, my favorite single track is right at the junction of 7 and 1.

Truly a fun trail. Louisiana is just not the place for mountain biking. If you miss having elevation, you might check this place out. There isn't much elevation, but at least there is something. Fun downhills. It doesn't look like it gets ridden much, so a lot of the trails are a bit overgrown. Worth the drive? yep. I'm not used to paying a fee to ride though, but i guess it's worth it since i have almost no other options in this part of the country.

Customer Service

Do the whole thing. If you do every trail at a moderate clip, it will take about 1.5 hours. They give you a handy map when you pay. All trails are clearly marked.

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!

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.
