Originally a single-lane road constructed in the 1930s, this scenic byway cuts through Kisatchie National Forest's Kisatchie Ranger District, where elevations range from 120 to 400 feet above sea level. If you need a break from driving, hike, bike or go horseback riding on the 10.5-mile Caroline Dormon Trail, surrounded by wax myrtle, French mulberry and pine trees.
