OHV Trail Status

NOTE: Trail status may change depending on the amount of rainfall in the area. You may call the OHV Hotline 24/7 at 1-866-830-6467 for the most recent updates. (The date on the hotline is the date of the recording, NOT the date trail status was updated.) We do our best to keep information on the website and hotline current. However, at times, there could be a delay in updating information. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause. Typically, if a trail is open on Friday afternoon, it will remain open through that weekend. To confirm the status of a trail, please call the Ranger District office corresponding to the trail location. After hours, please call the OHV Hotline at 1-866-830-6467. On weekends, trail status inquiries can be sent via Facebook Messenger. Someone will respond as soon as possible; however, an immediate response is not always guaranteed.  

* Kisatchie’s Multiple-Use Trails are enjoyed by OHV riders, hikers, mountain & e-biker riders and horeback riders so please be kind while sharing our beautiful trails. *
