Home of Louisiana Tech University, the small city of Ruston can be considered a college town. There’s a lot more to it, though. The 260-acre Lincoln Parish Park is one of the premiere mountain biking destinations in the region, with around 11 miles of single-track riding for all levels. There are also lots of opportunities for walking, camping, and fishing in the park.
Located in North Louisiana between Shreveport and Monroe, Ruston and Lincoln Parish is known for its thriving college-town atmosphere, an 18-block historic downtown district and the incredibly sweet peaches grown here. The area is home to Grambling State University and Louisiana Tech University, and boasts a variety of specialty shops and delicious restaurants. Come explore Ruston's many arts, outdoors and historic attractions, such as the Louisiana Military Museum and the Eddie G. Robinson Museum, and take part in one of our events and festivals.
