    Talking Louisiana Wild Azalea Trail Fall Hang

    This is an update for the Louisiana Wild Azalea Trail Hang scheduled for October 14th, 15th, and 16th. The base camp will be at the Evangeline Camp of the Kisatchie National Forest on Messina Road. Messina Road is west of Alexandria on La Hwy 28 West. See this Google map for directions. If coming into Alexandria on I-49, take exit 86 onto North MacArthur Drive. Go 2 miles to the La Hwy 28 West / Fort Polk / Leesville exit and take a right. Go 7.6 miles to Messina Road and take left. The base camp is 4.6 miles down Messina Road. If coming into Alexandria down La Hwy 165 North from Monroe, after crossing the OK Allen bridge, continue straight for two miles to La Hwy 28 West. If coming into Alexandria up La Hwy 165 South from Lake Charles, take the Shreveport exit at the traffic circle. La Hwy 28 is 1.8 miles from the circle. PM me if you need additional details.
    The Wild Azalea Trail is 31 miles long and very diverse, from pinewood forest to hardwood bottoms. It is marked with yellow blazes and is very well
    maintained. There is a restroom at the Evangeline Camp. Information and a brochure is available by calling the Calcasieu Ranger District Office at (318) 793-9427. There is a very nice map in the
    brochure.

    Looking forward to meeting all that come.

    As a side note, I would like to apologize now to any and everyone attending. I talk funny so please don't hesitate to ask me to repeat or slow down.
