West Bay Wildlife Management Area
West Bay Wildlife Management Area is located in north-central Allen Parish near Elizabeth, Louisiana. Depending on whether you talk to a leg-shaving racer or a novice mountain biker who falls over on level ground at slow speed (also known as an "Artie" for Artie Johnson who perfected this move), you'll receive different ideas about what makes up the classic trail: steep, flat, open, tight, long, short, wet, dry, single-track, roads, dirt, gravel, boulders. You name it, we search it out on the trail. West Bay Wildlife Management Area's 62,115 acres of state-managed, privately owned land stretches across mostly flat pine plantations. Over 200 miles of gravel roads (which can be made into loops or out-and-backs, of various lengths) open up into forests with hickory, red bay, and white bay growing among slash pines. Woodcocks nest over yaupon, smilax, and holly. Rabbits browse beneath dense stands of blackberries whose blooms turn these Deep South woods into a snowy wonderland.
