From Shreveport, Cross Lake is off of Hwy 220 on the north east side. Take Exit 2 on to S. Lakeshore drive and just follow it west to Hwy 169.
Just north of Shreveport along the shore of Cross Lake. This is a beautiful ride with few cars. Winding country road with lots of water, trees and farmland. Starts at the east end of the lake and ends on highway 169.
Two lane highway, winding road with little traffic on a Sunday.
A few gas stations. Parks and marinas along the lake.
Great short ride. Pavement is in decent shape and visibility is good, leading to smooth, predictable constant-radius corners. Only drawback is the near-continuous presence of driveways, necessitating an extra measure of caution. Highly recommend.
