Red River Bicycle Trail Description

The Red River Bicycle Trail provides a convenient route through the heart of Shreveport along the Clyde Fant Memorial Parkway. Along the way, the trail offers spectacular views of the river and the city skyline. The path begins at RiverView Park, which features gardens, a sprayground and 35-foot-tall lighted rose sculptures. Midway, the trail passes through Veterans & Freedom Park before ending at the Charles and Marie Hamel Memorial Park, a 17-acre open space offering a picnic area and boat launch.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at the trail's northern end at Sci-Port, Louisiana's Science Center; mid-trail at the Veterans & Freedom Park; or at the Charles and Marie Hamel Memorial Park on the trail's southern end.

Red River Bicycle Trail Reviews

I rode this trail today. It is very scenic. Love the winding turns. The big downhill by the bridge and tbe scenery was so awesome. There is one place near the boatlaunch that is covered by a man made levee to help with flooding but it can be ridden over with little to no effort. I give the trail 5 stars because it is free and fun. I thank the city for putting it there for our enjoyment. I wont remove stars due to minor issues caused by flooding as that is not the trails fault nor the city-- afterall it is a trail.

This trail is really sad. Portions of it have sand and dirt all over it so thick we had to pick up our bikes and walk through (road bikes). The vines are growing out and will hit you in the face. Obviously the city is no longer maintaining it. One part we picked up our bikes and walked over a big pile of dirt and then there were several miles of good trail. Despite this we had fun visiting the city and trying out the trail.

We went to ride the trail and found only small sections open, due to all the flooding this spring/summer. Would love to try it again when it cleans up!
