Hiking

Not much parking. Starts off at a bathroom in front of the camp and trailer access gate. The path takes you down next to a Disc Golf Course until you arrive at the Station Lodge. After that you can make about a 1.5 mile through the park, although I suggest staying on the board walk even though it shortens your walk, unless you like spider webs in your face. Bring big spray or walk fast... or else the skeeters will get ya.

Easy boardwalk trail with plenty of dirt trails that branch out. Part of the loop was closed.

HikingMuddy

We went in early January, and the trails were a bit muddy, but nothing we couldn't detour around. We did both the Moonseed Loop and the Nature Station Loop, totaling a little over 5 miles. The trails were very well-marked and easy to follow. I would definitely rate them as easy, but there were a few more 'fun' spots, with some more up and down parts. Overall, we had a very fun few hours enjoying some surprisingly long trails very close to town.

Trail is both boardwalk and nature loops. They have cleaned up most of the downed trees. There is just one spot on the boardwalk that you need to navigate a fallen tree and boardwalk damage. The trees are magnificent and the trail was well laid out.

WalkingGreat!Muddy

Fantastic trails. There are some areas of the trails that hold water/mud. South-East quarter of the boardwalk loop has downed trees over the walkway in two places. You can follow the trails to get around it. Loved it but could use some debris removal.

Hiking

Beautiful hike but can be tricky to find trail head. Google map to Rock Falls Trail will get your close but to wrong location. Once on Hwy 8 go past the private road that google maps wants to take you to... keep going on HWY 8 (oh a mile or so) until you see brown sign on left that says Sonny Gilbert WMA with arrow to right.. you’ll turn right and take the gravel road past the little flea market for about 1/4-1/2 mile where there’s a place to get a check-in slip and then keep going about a mile to a pavilion area where trailhead is located. Narrow gravel road a little tricky if someone is coming from opposite direction.

Interesting hike through bayou area on a palmetto lined path. Path is good to the boardwalk but narrows up and gets a little buggy after that.

Really cool place. The diversity of sounds is maxing. Boardwalk is in really bad shape and there is caution tape the appears to have bin cut, so probably intended to Be closed

HikingBlowdown

Nice trails. Walked them on a chilly Dec. weekday. A few trees down from summer storms but there are workarounds and full circuit is possible. EVEN the major boardwalk marked "closed" can be navigated if you are somewhat nimble. Stopped at nature center and had nice talk with Kyle, the manager. Worth a visit if you have time.

HikingGreat!

One of the best hikes Louisiana has to offer. Marked pretty well,al and even though it doesn't seem like it's hiked all that often, the trail seemed to be a decent condition. Offers it all for the deep south...terrain chy, rock, streams and waterfall.

We were riding around Leesville trying to find a trail to do and this is what we FINALLY found! The kids LOVED it! They got to play on the playground and our daughter got to ride her bike. The trail was really nice as was the play ground!
