Went for a hike on 7/21/16, pretty decent trail for hiking, has small hills here and there but is mostly flat, has ramps, jumps, and bridges for biking, would hike again and this trail has me wanting to get a decent bike to take there.

Went for a day hike there July 9, 2016 with our dog. Access is 61 at Guide Levee Road, so of youre coming from BR its a left AFTER you cross the spillway, and if youre coming from New Orleans its a right when immediately BEFORE the spillway, via a quick turn on Guide Levee road and off again via left turn off levee and down to parking area.

Trail is fun, manages to have some variability in grade. We did the one thats basically and out and back shot along a hummock of land with a canal to the left (west) and the levee rd to our right, beyond the return path, (east). Thats a super nice touch with this trail - its an out-and-back but bikers traveling either direction have separate paths, sometimes by as much as 50 feet (but rarely out of sight and usually within 20 paces) so if youre a hiker a head-on collision with a cyclist isnt an issue - being overtaken at speed is the sole hazard, happily. Be mindful with your dogs, children, and absent minded companions that cyclists will be approaching from behind with little time to stop on the often sandy surface of the trail, so stop off-trail only and cyclists, respect the overtaking party's responsibility to pass safetly or stop in time - best solution is a hearty shout and a wary eye at partcularly low- visibility point.

Overall, fun hike in a unique spot.

Figured trail would be cleared a little. honestly the trail it ruined. They would need to haul in dirt along the whole way especially mid way point its just swamp. Down trees and bushes every 20-30 yards

Awesome trail. Flat and swampy, not strenuous. Wildlife. Beautiful and seemingly remote even though in the middle of the city and well maintained! Moderately marked. Didn't see a gator but could see some being back there!

This is a great trail for hiking and backpacking! My girlfriend and I got to the park and checked in at the office. The lady in the office was helpful and helped us choose the primitive site that would best suit our backpacking plan. We ended up choosing Campsite 4 and headed to the Walker Branch Trailhead. The trail was slick at some spots from it raining earlier that day but that was expected. It took around 45 minutes to hike to Campsite 4 with a few breaks. The trail was well marked and maintained with signs to each campsite. The campsite itself was clean with a fire pit and grill. The next day we hiked back to the car and drove to the office to rent a canoe for the day. A different lady this time gave us paddles and life jackets and told us how to get to the boat launch where we could get the canoe itself. We ended up canoeing all the way to our campsite along a well marked canoe path often close to the bank, through and under hundreds of beautiful cypress trees. When we arrived at the campsite we packed up, paddled back to the car, returned the canoe and we were on our way. Seeing all of the wildlife was perhaps the best part of the trip. We saw a rabbit, an alligator, a deer, a few turtles, tons of frogs, egrets, a hawk, two armadillos and even a hog. All in all this park was great and we will be returning!!!

Great trail. Well kept. They aren't kidding about the bugs!!! Wowzers! Bug spray did little to help. We saw two alligators (one in action as it caught and ate it's breakfast), a large frog, several birds, squirrels, etc. watch out for spiders... They are everywhere and if you go first thing when they open they aren't cleared off the trail yet. Got some great photos along the trail. Easy walk for beginning hikers but be sure to keep a close eye on little ones. The gators we saw were right off the trail and a mere foot away from us.

About 3.5 mi worth of moderate trail one way. Shady and fun. Dog friendly. Loads of bugs and spider webs.

Not quite sure I would consider this a trail...great history. Walked the length of the city as we'll. Very dirty and crowded.

Beautiful walking trail with lots of wildlife. We saw armadillos, snakes, lizards, turtles, frogs, birds, and alligators. It's an easy trail with lots of shade. Do not forget your bug spray!

Awesome Louisiana trail, you really get to see a lot of Louisiana's beauty on this trail; from the Cypress trees nestled in the marsh to the birds and wild life it's just great. The last time I went I saw an owl, three snakes (small non venomous), and plenty of squirrels. In pass I've seen deer, armadillos, and possums. Chico Lake is large and you can rent kayaks and canoes. The cabins are quite nice also.

It was a good trail. Definitely keeps your eyes peeled for snakes. We walked up on two copperhead snakes. No biggie though, because we were in their house. Next time we will try it with bikes.

The trails were nice, a bit overgrown so I wish I had worn pants or tall socks and shoes. Saw one snake but it was gone as quick as it came. There was a tree down blocking the trail into the deepest part of the woods so I wasn't apply to hike the whole thing. I'll definitely be back but when the heat isn't so bad and all the creepy crawlies aren't out.
