*CANCELLED* Kisatchie Trail Ride Scheduled for June 11 *CANCELLED*

CANCELLED: Due to low participation registration and possible damage or unsuitable conditions to the trail from the recent deluge of rains, EASL is canceling the trail ride this Saturday, June 11. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused those who had already signed up. If enough interest is generated later this fall, we may try to reschedule.  Any questions at all, call 5718101.

*CHANGE* Kisatchie Trail Ride is scheduled for (new date) Saturday, June 11. EASL is planning a trail ride to the Sandstone Trail in the Kisatchie National Forest projected to be on Saturday, June 11.  The date will depend on the trail’s availability, depending on the rains toward the end of May. We will monitor closely through June 4 if the trail is usable.  The ride is for regular 4 wheelers — no side by sides. They are too wide for the trail bridges. This will be a slow paced, family encouraged ride, not a race. There are many nature sights on this 26 mile trek. Riders will need to bring your own provisions: water, food and drinks, so please be self-contained on your bike. Camping is available. Any questions call Warren Hebert at 225-571-8101 or email at warrenh3@eatel.net.  Remember to check back about the date as it gets closer to the date.

4-Wheeler Trip in Kisatchie, May 19

EASL is hosting a 4-wheeler trip in the Kisatchie District on Saturday, May 19. A ranger will lead riders through the Sandstone Trail, which is about 35 miles long. Expect the ride to take around 3 – 4 hours. A meal will be served at the end of the ride. The only restriction for 4-wheelers or other ATV’s is they cannot be wider than 50” due to the width of some bridges on the trail. Riders are not required to wear helmets and they can ride double. Members of other LWF affiliates are welcome to join. The group will be meeting rangers at Exit 119 on I-49 at 9am. Please respond to Francis Gautreaux so that he can keep a count of those planning to attend.  For more information or to register, contact Francis Gautreaux with EASL and provide your name and phone number. You can reach him at 225.715.5749 (cell), 225.673.4991 (home) or email him at fgautreaux@cox.net.  Many thanks to the rangers at Kisatchie National Forest for helping arrange this trip.
