The Calcasieu Ranger District manages two trail systems: the Claiborne and Enduro Trails. Both trails offer a variety of recreation experiences within the Kisatchie National Forest that is actively managed to restore native environments. The Enduro trail offers unique views of open longleaf pine savannahs. The Claiborne trail is where over 500,000 troops trained for WWII and was the 3rd largest city in Louisiana during those war years. The trails are available for ATV, Motorcycle, and Horse use. Hiking and biking are also allowed on Claiborne and Enduro Trails; however, they are primarily used for motorized and equestrian riders.
The claiborne Trails are "Multi-Use" allowing Ohv's, motorcycles, horses, biking, and hiking. Located off U.S. Highway 165 between Foresthill, Louisiana and Woodworth, Louisiana. The Claiborne Trails are all loop trails.
Due to the overall lack of maintenance, these trails may be in poor condition. Check locally for conditions and weather. The Loran Camp & Trailhead provides immediate access to all 3 loops. Ahtus Melder Camp is available for horse use only. Another trailhead is planned for Motorcycles accessing Boy Scout loop.
