5 mile hike/bike loop trail at Bogue Chitto State Park

Tim Poole

Electric Mountain Bikes Unknown

Features -none-

Family Friendly A very wide corridor makes this a good option for families.

The park is open from 8:00 a.m to 10:00 p.m. Entrance fee is $3 per person. Call 985-839-5707 for trail status.

Description

This is a multi-use trail at Bogue Chitto State Park that takes riders for a mostly wide and easy loop. There are some steep sections with extended climbs and descents, but these are just on the west side. There are multiple possible starting points making this an easily customizable route. The shorter distance and lack of elevation change makes this a great route for families.

What to look out for: a few sandy sections and a creek crossing that you have to get off the bike for to walk on logs.
