There are many wonderful opportunities for bike riding on the Kisatchie National Forest. Your bike trip through the Forest can include many nature sights such as an Eagle’s nest, a flock of turkeys, or seasonal flowers in bloom.

The multi-use trails are closed to motorized use after a heavy rainfall event. This is an excellent time for the hikers, bikers, and horseback riders to use these trails without encountering a motorized vehicle. The Sandstone Trail on the Kisatchie Ranger District (#24) is closed to motorized use from Jan 1 – Apr 30 each year but open to non-motorized use all year.
