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 updates. (The date on the hotline is the date of the recording, NOT the updated trail status date.) We do our very best to keep all of the information on the website and the hotline current, however, at times, there is a delay in updating the information. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Typically, if the trail is open on a Friday afternoon, it will remain open throughout that weekend. To confirm the status of any trail, please call the corresponding Ranger District office for that area. On weekends, an inquiry may be sent via Facebook Messager and 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 bike riders, horseback riders, and e-bike users so please be kind as you share these trails *
