Really enjoy hiking these trails. Very easy trails to follow and hike, and very peaceful for being near the city.

Red River National Wildlife Refuge is my go-to hiking location in the Shreveport/Bossier area. My dog and I often head over there for an afternoon hike, and we always have a good time. The trails are very clearly marked, and grassy parts are mowed regularly. The route is crystal clear. The yellow trail gets a little muddy sometimes, but it's never been so bad that I've gotten my feet wet. There are two options: one through a sort of field, and the other along the trees by the river. The yellow trail joins the orange trail in a huge area filled with chickasaw plums and loops back to the interpretive building.
