Updated the official Kisatchie NF map with bridge locations and widths.

The trail is still officially a 50" but many people besides myself ride wider machines in all the Kisatchie trails. Camp Claiborne is the exception with access gates through parking area confinement fences. Rangers here are 100% jerks so if they catch anyone over width, on the road, no spark arrestor, numerous etc., they will provide you with a violation receipt. I've never met a friendly one since 1996!

Livingston is very tight for 64" machines and you can't cross any of the 5 bridges. This is not my favorite place to ride but it was the only trail open last weekend and only about 1.5 hours from home.

If you want to ride SxS in Louisiana, Sandstone is the best trail, Enduro second, Livingston third, Claiborne last.
Sandstone is open May through December. Other trails are open year round, except for weather closures.

Have you ever seen a ranger out on the trails? I've never seen one any where other than the Claiborne trailhead and the bigger camping site connected to Sandstone. Thanks for posting the measurements

Between Leesville and Nichitoches. It's great riding!
Sandstone Map
I'll update this map with bridge locations soon. At Sandstone a 62" wide machine will fit on every bridge. All the bridges were widened a few years ago for an unknown reason while they still enforce 50" width. Crazy! But the logging companies are able to bulldoze roads for log trucks to reach deep into the forest!

Memorial Day weekend of 2019 we met a ranger near the Corral Camp location. Rangers had the south loop and Lotus camp parking area closed so everyone had to park at Corral Camp. We arrived there with 10 trucks and trailers and it was packed so 3 of us had to park on the road just outside the camp area. We unloaded, made one loop then back for lunch. As we were beginning our after lunch ride, a ranger pulls up, jumps out of his truck and says we are all in violation! We can't be on the road. After several minutes of discussion, he finally allowed us to move into newly vacated space in the camp area, but we couldn't start our UTVs! We had to PUSH them onto the trailers!! Or 50 feet to the trail road crossing!! We pushed 3 RZRs uphill to the trail crossing and loaded another 2. Retarded!!!!! But he didn't give us tickets or check width. I think the only reason there was space in the camp area on Saturday of a 3 day weekend is because the rangers had be trolling and writing tickets that morning while they had everyone cornered to the north trail loop and 1 parking area.

Another time we were riding at Enduro on the trail along Lookout Road to the north. Two rangers came running through the woods flagging us down. They only asked to see our green tags that you are supposed to keep on you while riding. Well, my buddy did not have his on him but they were on his dash board in truck. One older ranger whipped out his receipt book while the younger one gently discouraged him from doing that. He sent us on our way but reminded us to carry our green tags with us next time. So, I guess the younger ranger was the nicest we've ever met here.

Claiborne is terrible for rangers in the parking area. They check tire lugs and spark arrestors constantly. When they drive up everyone hits the woods!!

Livingston not so much worth the trip but Sandstone is. Just don't go on a holiday weekend. That is the only time we ever had trouble there. The trail itself is the best in the state. No roots! Go once before you scratch it off the list. That's our favorite Kisatchie place to ride.
