went January 26th 2017 came out on the 27th, started in woodworth and did a in and out overnight hike. Did not complete the whole trail, i hiked 6 miles out and back tracked back to my car. Was a well established trail with lots to see, it was really beautiful out there.

A very good trail for Louisiana. We did the trail (one way) over 3 days as a shakedown for Philmont. We will likely do the trail again.

Water... you can filter water along the trail in a couple of locations. So plan it through.

If you took away the walk on the highway after it would warrant a higher rating. The trail was nice and the lookout point was pretty cool .

A few questions:

Is there any path to make a day-hike loop out of this?
And which parts of the trails are best for each of the following?
-Hilly terrain
-Flowers
-Water

Nice trail loved the elevation changes. Much different than most of louisiana.

This is not a review but a question, is there a service for dropping off the hikers and then taking the car to the other end? Thanks~

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.
