A did the trail a few years back. Good trail to work out any backpacking kinks before hitting more technical trails out of state.

Just be aware at 1 mile in from trail head there are downed trees obscuring the trail. We hiked from trail ended to head and got quite turned around at that point because the AllTrails map doesn't match the exact route. Trail blazes were frequent and apparent except at the hollow where the fallen trees obscured the trail.

Ran a 10K on the Sugar Cane Trail and enjoyed every minute of it! Beautiful scenery and a few good climbs/descents to keep it interesting.

Best hike I've done in Louisiana, which is a significant caveat. Parked at Caroline Dorman, hiked to the northern trailhead. Camped near the intersection with the high ridge trail. It rained in the morning, and, as one might expect with sandstone hills, the trail became really slick and the creek fords were knee high. The trail is more challenging than most in Louisiana but still a piece of cake. Would definitely return.

Beware of ticks in the summer time. Great place to hike.

Camped at the end of high ridge trail. Nicely secluded.

Good rolling hills. Not too technical.

For a short, beautiful hike I suggest crossing the long dam that separates the two lakes and hitting up the trail to the right labeled "Lost Woman." It's a BMX trail but it winds along a creek with mostly open woods surrounding you. The rest of sugar cane trail is recently thinned pine timber that while beautiful, it's a lot of walking through the same old tall pine trees. I will be coming back to this place this summer with my paddle board!

Took my cyclocross bike out and rode most of the trail, really enjoyed the long flowing stretches on the bike and the challenges the more technical sections of trail provided. The pine needles and leaves made the trail slick and obscured some ground obstacles otherwise I'd recommend sections for kids to mountain bike and trail running. Had a lot of fun.

The trails were very well kept up and well marked. We spent a couple days on the trail, and for the most part it was pretty easy hiking. There were a couple spots that could be labeled as difficult, but really only if you're not packing light
