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 3 rd 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 Enduro Trails total 30 miles in length and can be used by motorcyclists, OHV'ers, horse riders, hikers and bikers. There are 3 separate loops within the Enduro Trail System, the South Loop which is 5 miles long, the Fullerton Loop which is 15 miles long, and the Mogul Loop which is approximately 19 miles in length.
Trail Access for the Enduro Trail: The Enduro Camp and Trailhead provides immediate access to all 3 loops. Another trailhead is planned for Motorcycle-only access to the Mogul loop.
Camping for the Enduro Trail: Enduro provides primitive camping for ATVs, Motorcycles, and Horse use. Fullerton has camping, but OHVs must be trailored to the Enduro Camp.
What are the equipment, registration, and license requirements on the OHV trails?
No vehicle can exceed an overall width of 50 inches. Tires cannot exceed 1-inch lug depth. Forest Service approved spark arrestors are required on all Kisatchie National Forest lands. Sound must be muffled to 99db or less. Headlights and taillights must be in working order and must be used when riding at night.

Fees are proposed for camping and trail use and may be implemented as early as April 2005.
