Arthur Ray Teague Parkway Trail

Nice Ride and Beautiful National Wildlife Area

April, 2024 by jdwiesner

Parked in an access lot about two miles from downtown (boat launch and sheriff’s substation) and rode south. It’s a well maintained, paved trail. Relatively flat. It’s closer to the highway than the river in many spots, unfortunately, probably because of the flood plain. Still, it’s pleasant ride. The highlight is the southernmost end that goes into the Red River National Wildlife area. I don’t think this 2-3 mile section is included on the trail map or in the mileages posted. It’s the highlight of the ride. We didn’t see another biker on the entirety of our 17 mile round trip. Just a few pedestrians. Undiscovered gem.

Red River Bicycle Trail

Okay for off road or hybrid bikes

September, 2023 by m2kfq2w2an

Road the trail today. Parking can be found at the riverfront near the aquarium. The trail is rough so don’t expect a smooth ride and but can be ridden. Should be ridden at a leisure pace due to curves, small overhanging limbs, wash outs, grass growing through cracks, holes, cracking and lifting of asphalt caused by tree roots. Beware of offshoot tunnels as one we tried got caught in deep mud and had to push our bikes out.

Arthur Ray Teague Parkway Trail

Well Maintained

September, 2023 by m2kfq2w2an

We rode 19.9 miles on this trail yesterday. It was an easy ride. We got on at the Brookshire Grocery Arena and road a little pass Boomtown Casino and back the other way a little past the Nature Center. The trail is mainly open, has more trees on the eastern side, has bathroom stops and lots of picnics tables and seats along the trail. A good portion follows the Red River. It definitely was worth the ride.


Rock Island Greenway

Pleasant trail

July, 2022 by classcchaos

Nice shaded trail. Some of it is paved and some is crushed stone. Seems to be very well maintained. It’s not a long trail but it is conveniently located near I-20 and Ruston has a cute little downtown area with several restaurants. Lots of people were walking the paved section of the trail near the Cook Park area, once I crossed the road and was on the crushed stone section I had the trail to myself. My iPhone died before I could get pics of the downtown area and the rest of the trail. Lots of free parking at the northern end of the trail @ Cook Park.

Louisiana Trails - Jamestown to Winnfield

Needs major work

April, 2022 by davidboggeman

Tried to ride a wide tired (45mm) gravel bike. Both directions from Jamestown.The trail was unrideable. The holes created by ATVs were virtually continuos and full of water. If I tried to walk around I was in thorns and poison ivy. Maybe in July when the water is lower it could be ridden but in April it is not rideable. I tried to ride through the mud holes got through a few then sunk up to my axels. For context, I rode the entire Great Divide Route and never encountered anything this bad. Rider be warned. I’ve never left a negative review for a trail but this one deserves it.

I live off the C C Road just north of Jamestown. I access the train at Lawson off of Nebo road. The trail north from there is full of deep water holes. Too deep to go thru on my ( Kaw-Mule). From Nebo road south to Jamestown it's fairly easy to go. No deep water. From Jamestown south it's good for about 2 miles, and then, and then. Wow.... There's holes deep enough to float a SHIP, I tried going around one to many and sunk. Had to walk 2 or more miles to the Jamestown road and call my wife to come get me. I took my big tractor down to pull it out. The water was up to my waist.
Someone with a Bulldozer needs to fix this trail. It's a goog sienic trail , but the average persons ride cannot use it.
I was told that Commisioner Foster Campbell is somehow one of the " Overseeers ". If everyone would connect with his office and ask that something be done it MIGHT get some response. Might. Don't hold your breath.

Louisiana Trails - Jamestown to Winnfield

Not Great. . .

November, 2021 by jana.parsons

I want to write this review so that no one is caught in the same predicament that we were. After reading the reviews for this trail we thought it might be a good experience on our gravel bikes. Starting off in Jamestown, it was difficult to locate the trail and parking area. Better signage might be a consideration, especially since it is stated as an endpoint for the trail. We went south on the trail and immediately ran into huge puddles that were all the way across the trail. There were places that had trestles, which would have been ok-however you had to get off your bike to get up onto them to be able to ride across them. We kept going thinking that it would get better. After persevering through 4 miles, we ran into a massive muddy pit that would have been horrible to get through. We decided to cross over to the road and finish up our ride. The previous review is the reason we decided to give this trail a try. It stated that this trail is well maintained, but that was not our experience. If you plan on riding this trail make sure you have bike fenders and are prepared for your feet to get wet (possibly your clothes as well).

Arthur Ray Teague Parkway Trail

Well paved, but little shade

September, 2021 by stvatandem

My wife and I started from the Lake Caroline Boat Launch parking area which is the southernmost end of the trail and rode to Diamond Jack Blvd. The trail is shaded by trees in the Lake Caroline area, but becomes more open as it gets closer to the Arthur RT Parkway. It's a nice ride, but could be longer.

Winn Parish Gem Trail

January, 2021 by unkleboudreaux1

I had seen the mixed reviews for last few years, and never checked out this trail. I rode to big high line & turned around just because time to go home. I was very pleased with trail & only leaving 4 stars because not done whole trail yet. You will not be disappointed- well maintained trail!!

Arthur Ray Teague Parkway Trail

Nice trail, needs more shade

June, 2019 by susancnett

This trail is wide and well designed, with benches available on the east end of the trail, and pavilions along the way as well. There is a beautiful statue in one of the parks, and the views of the river and the city are splendid.

The biggest issue is that in the summer sun, there is little shade. The few places that have shade don't have benches, and the seats that are provided sit in the baking sun.

It would be an excellent project for scouts or community groups to erect some shade structures over the existing benches, and to plant some trees that would provide more shade along the trail.

The western end of the trail has no benches or shady spots.

Overall, this trail is an asset to the community and would be most enjoyable when the temperatures are cool.

Trail no good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :(:(:(:(:(:(

April, 2018 by robarmore

The trail from Heflin, La to Castor La is worthless. It has way too many huge water holes that are big enough to swallow a full size pick up truck. Hard to get around them. My side by side is not and will never be snorkled. It's not a submarine. I have a disabled brother, that loves to ride his atv, that's all he has he can enjoy in his life. He can't ride the trail for flooding out his atv or turning over in huge holes full of water, that others have played in and made bigger and deeper. This needs to be fixed now. It's dangerous. How can a family enjoy a nice ride and picnic with their children of they can't get very far or around these huge holes of water. This trail is suppose to be for all people, not just the ones that have jacked up side by side and atvs. Can't even ride bikes, walk, or jog(unless you want to swim or wade waist deep water/mud) not to mention the snakes in the water. I'd like to know when is the North end of this trail going to get fixed? When will the bridge over Mix Crossing get fixed? Please get this end fixed real soon before something bad happens to my brother, my family or anyone else. Thank you. This matter/problem needs to be fixed and taken care of.

We have biked many trails and are r to t members. This trail is below standards. Started outside winnfield, almost gave up trying to find trail head, not signage in the middle of nowhere. Parking lot had big pile of garbage, mattresses, junk, and a stinking pile of crawfish shells. The surface of the trail wash loose and hard to push through, tires mired down. Atvs you a couple times went by slowly, we gave up after a half hour. Maybe it is better at the other end.
