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.

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.
