St. Mary's Falls Trail is located on the north end of the WMA; it travels through upland mixed pine hardwoods and passes several smaller waterfalls and scenic views. Note: You mush have a Wild Louisiana Stamp to legally access this WMAs or other LDWF-administered lands if you do not have a Louisiana fishing or hunting license which can be bought online

The directions will bring you on the wrong side of the split in the road. Take a right not left to get to the trail head. My dog got several ticks. Bring bug spray. Overall nice hike.

This trail is marked really well and super easy to follow. If you go after a rain, the first downhill area is fairly steep and easy to slip. Overall, really clean trail. Did packout a little bit of other peoples trash, but not too bad. Some of the last hills out are really steep so make sure you rest or reserve your energy for the end, especially if you are a beginner.

Trail was easy to follow. I took my chiweenie dog and he was able to get around easily. Getting to the trail in my car was kinda difficult, it had just rained and I was not expecting a muddy dirt road but we made it. Being a novice hiker, at best, I made the mistake of exerting a lot of energy getting back up from the waterfalls, which made it kinda hard on me when finishing the hike. There were some hills that challenged me in the end. But it made it all the more satisfying upon completion!!

We only found this trail last year, but had heard about it before. it's a fairly easy trail to follow & only the last piece headed back to the loop was steep. This is one of our new favorite trails. Unfortunately, it's been littered with trash as well. We pack out as much as we can, but people really need to learn to respect nature or just stay home.

This trail used to be a local secret. The last time I hiked it I was with my wife and two 6 year olds and they LOVED it. If someone was to blindfold you and take you to these falls you would never guess you were in Louisiana. Sometimes in a very dry summer the falls can be reduced to a trickle, but in the early spring or late fall when rain is plentiful it is a really cool waterfall, especially for being in Louisiana. There are actually two waterfalls not just one. While winding along the sandy creek bottom you can find all sorts of creatures from brown crawfish in the water to flying squirrels in trees. There is one VERY STEEP decline (or incline depending on which route you take) that can be slippery and somewhat tricky for beginners. Sit down and “scoot” down if you have to because it’s worth it to continue the trail. There’s also an overlook on the gravel road to the hiking trail that we used to call “lovers leap”. It used to be a teen hangout spot. It has a nice elevated view of nearby Turkey Creek (known locally as “the brake”). Good sunset views from here.

S/o to Take-a-hike (http://www.take-a-hike.info/home/locations/la/state-parks/jcgilbertwma) for having a recording of this trail and descriptions. It made it possible for me to actually get this trail on this site. Now about the trail, you'll think " oh, it's short and in Louisiana, it's gonna be a breeze." This is not true as there is a lot of elevation change happening on this trail. Despite being a small waterfall, it still was impressive to see a waterfall like this in Louisiana and the unique topography was very nice as well.
