Directions to the Red Dirt Start/Finish Line!

Since this is in a National Forest, there is not set address for the start/finish parking area. Technically it is the Day Use parking area on Park Road 395. The most direct way to find it is to plug the GPS coordinates into your map app: 31.478666, -93.103274
Be sure you enter them exactly as they read, including the comma. Here are directions from both the east and west:
From Leesville (south):
North on Hwy 117
Right on Hwy 59 (Longleaf Pine Rd)
Right on Park Road 395 (Day Use Parking Area) This is the start/finish.
From Shreveport or Alexandria -
Exit 119 (Cloutierville Exit), head west 5.2 miles
Right onto Longleaf Pine Road (the road is to the right shortly after you pass Bolton Cemetery), drive 12.8 miles until you see the sign for the Day Use parking area (park road 395) on the left. This is parking as well as the start finish.
Easy to find, there is just no real address to plug in, sorry!!
