from Alexandria move to Highway 28 West. Once you start to move out of town you will see a small sign that says lake kincaid east boat ramp. Take a left at that road. The name of the road is Messina road. As you are moving south look for a sign that says east boat ramp and take a right at this road. Move to the end of the road and there will be a parking lot. The day use fee to park a vehicle there is 3 dollars. The trail head is marked. If you want to print out a map visit the kisatchie national forest website and view the Calcaseu unit link. You will see a print out for the entire area.
Great trail running spot.
