Caddo Lake Grasslands Trail Ride
March 25-17, 2022
Where: Caddo Lake Grasslands Bois D'Arc Trailhead campground
The dogwoods and redbuds should be in their prime. Join us for a great weekend of camping and riding.
The Bois D'Arc Trailhead campground is near the Bois D'Arc trailhead that offers riders a network of more than 26 miles of trails in and around Coffee Mill Lake, a much smaller version of Crockett Lake.
The term "grasslands" is misleading as most of the trail is through groves of large oaks and hickory trees.
