Eddie B. Jones Caddo Parish Park: From I-20 & I-49 junction, go I-49S to Bert Kouns (Industrial Loop or Outer Loop), go west (right) to Hwy. 171 (Mansfield Road), go south (left) two blocks (second stop light), turn right on Hwy. 525 (Colquitt Road) for 10.4 miles to Spring Ridge. Turn south (left) on Hwy. 169, go 1.1 miles to Hwy. 789 (Caution: The turn off is in the middle of a DANGEROUS 90 Degree Curve!) Go 2.7 miles. Make a right turn into the park just past a small white wooden country church. Follow the black top to the equipment barns. The trail head is just on the oppsite side of where you entered the parking lot on the far west side. NOTE: If you get to the Prison Entrance you went about a 1/4 mile too far south! There are several ways to get there but this is the most generic. Here are a couple of other routes you might consider. a. From west: Take Hwy. 169 at Greenwood, i.e. it goes right into Spring Ridge. You have to go into Greenwood via Hwy. 80 to find Hwy. 169. b. From I-20 and Industrial Loop: Go south on Industrial Loop to the third stop light. Make a hard right turn in front of the Fire Station followed by a hard left turn on Woolworth road. This take you to Hwy. 525. Turn right on Hwy. 525 to Spring Ridge. c. If all else fails, dial UTM 04-12-795, 35-70-483 into your GPS. This will take you to the entry, i.e. a church on the corner of the entry road and Hwy. 789. Use datum NAD 83 in zone 15.

Great trail running spot.
