Lincoln Parish Park Trail
Many mountain bikers rank this trail, located in Lincoln Parish, Louisiana, among the top 25 trails in the nation. Twisting and winding up and down steep inclines, the 10-mile loop was designed by James Ramsaur in 1992 and lies inside a 260-acre forested park. Although the park offers technical terrain, it features signage that shows you the degree of difficulty and helps you know exactly where you’re headed. If you're up for a shorter run, you can always turn back before completing the entire loop. The park's paved interior road intersects with the trail in four places, so you're never too far from the parking area. The scenery is excellent, and the park has several picnic areas and a small lake with a sandy beach and swimming area. A four-mile easy trail for novice riders also is available.
