Per rider
Alexandria is a city situated on the south bank of the Red River in Louisiana, USA. The city is located in almost the exact geographic center of the state. Alexandria is the principal city of the Alexandria Metropolitan Area and the parish seat of Rapides Parish.

Near Alexandria in Ball, inside the majestic scenery of a forest mixture of pine and hardwood lies a spectacular off road trail network, Camp Livingston Trail Complex. The trail system consists of two interconnecting loop trails and features several creek crossings, which are perfect for motocross.

The trails are Little Creek Trail and Hickman Trail. Little Creek Trail is a 22.6 mi/36.3 km loop trail of moderate terrain on the southern side of the system and Hickman Trail is a 12.5 mi/20 km moderate loop trail on the northern side of the system. The entire network’s size is 7 mi²/18 km² with 35 mi/56.3 km of trails in a wonderful forest.

The marked, not rated and lightly maintained trails lie at an elevation of 100 to 200 ft/30.4 to 61 m and consist of loose dirt in most parts, hard pack, some mud, little rocks and dust and a few berms, small jumps and steep hills. There are two staging areas and the trailhead for Little Creek loop has vault restrooms, that will serve your needs.

The network is opened all year round, but due to wet trail conditions, it sometimes might be temporarily closed, so it is highly suggested to call first. There are some limitations and rules, in order to use the trails. An end cap and a spark arresting silencer is required for all vehicles.

Keep in mind that there is a noise limitation of 99 db and the maximum treat depth of tires should not exceed 1 in/2.5 cm. Camping is permitted in the developed sites of the area without any charge. There is a fee per rider though. This wonderful area is a National Forest and totally worth at least a full day visit.
