Trail description: If you like the trail at Ruston, La, then you will love Eddie D. Jones (a.k.a The Monkey Trail). Legend has it that James Ramsaur laid out the Monkey Trail after someone commented that his Ruston trail was not all that hard. Yeah, this trail is more challenging than Ruston is. The seven mile loop is open to all riders. The ten mile loop is for experienced riders. Racers are encouraged to enter both time trials. Also note that the Monkey is great course for those hardcore Single Speeders!!!
