Hiking

Great hike. Trail clear from hurricane-downed trees. Be careful if windy because lots of leaners. Surprising topography for Louisiana. Many rock outcroppings. About as close to a blue ridge hike as you can get in this state. Half of trail is very hilly and second half is along ridge with vistas on either side. The 2.5 mile road portion is no big deal. You’re still in a beautiful national park after all.

Pretty easy trial. I walked it with my dog. You basically have to go down on the start of the trail and up at the end of the trail. The steps are easy. Not difficult. If you start the trail going left, then you'll get to this little stream with pretty water not far from the start. Cool to see something like this especially in Louisiana. There are plenty of parking spots and several picnic areas at this area. Also, a bathroom. A great place to adventure and relax for a few hours.

A amazing. So grateful for the crew that removed Hurricane Laura debris. Day hiked it in about 4 hours. Beautiful fall day.

Very nice trail, but there was not much shade so be aware of how hot it is if you take your dog.

Glad to see it back open. Trail has been cleared of fallen trees, though sad to see the damage. Lots of pine needles coating path, so could be slippery if wet. You cannot beat the views on the trails in this area. Short, but a good workout with the elevation changes and the sandstone stairs.

Downed trees all over the place and difficult to stay on route at the moment. Normally this trail is one of my favorites but probably best to avoid this one until it’s cleaned up.

I really appreciate the guys who cleaned this trail so far! It’s good up to about 5.5 miles in.

Hiking

As of Sep 20, trail is open after Hurricane Laura though this website says it’s closed. Take precaution and watch for any branches that may have been broken and hanging, also for root-sprung trees. There had been a small fire about one mile in on the right, up on a hill, so that was neat to see. There are a couple of trees down across the trail that haven’t been moved yet. One is on the backside of the loop at the top of the hill so just have to go around it (on the right side was easiest). The sandstone is beautiful. We enjoyed the little challenge of this trail.

HikingBlowdown

I had called the rangers office to confirm that it was open like their website said. I do not recommend it. At the low section, going counterclockwise, it is very difficult to find the trail. AllTrails GPS was the only reason I was able to get through. Even then, I decided to turn around.

Backpacking

It was an ok walk in the woods for mid-August. We did the loop as a single overnight backpacking trip. Recent burns have reduced the tree cover so it’s a bit sunnier than I’m accustomed to hiking thus a hat is a good recommendation. As this is wilderness designated, the trail was in great shape. If you think a wilderness trail is “overgrown”, maybe stick to city park. ;) Very sandy, gaiters will help a lot with keeping the forest out of your boot. The first stream crossing was dry but still with a few deeper pools that could be filtered. There was flowing water by the bridge crossing and then again shortly thereafter. At that point, we decided to filter our liter bottles full and then also carry along a full Vecto to filter later just in case. It’s a good thing we did as there was NO WATER access for the rest of the loop. Lastly, in order to complete the loop you have a long road walk, probably about two miles back to the parking area (which has an accessible privy for those wondering). All and all not a bad trip, but not my favorite.

August 2020- a nice once paved trail with information placards about plants/trees/grass and local geology. some placards are missing and some are illegible due to being crudely tagged. creeks and waterfall are mostly dried up or stagnant. also watch for snakes along the trail!

Great trail, beginning to get a little overgrown in some areas, I have a few scratches from the bushes because of wearing shorts. Also quite a few down logs over the trail so practice good snake etiquette.

Moderate trail with some of the coolest views for Louisiana. Super over grown right now. Felt like i was hiking a game trail. Definitely a fall or spring hike. Pay attention to the map the trail is not marked very well.

Running

Easy trail to run. We accessed it from Backbone trail and then took it to the road to walk back to Backbone trailhead. Pretty open meaning not much shade. I don’t recommend on a Louisiana summer day.

HikingOver grown

My son and I just finished the trail, I wouldn’t call it easy by any means. The trail hasn’t been maintained in over 3 years. We where hiking/backpacking/camping so we had 40 lb. packs. The trail is actually 20 miles and very little accessible water. A lot of loose sand do to the dirt bike and atv traffic. We loved it but definitely go prepared.

Beautiful trails that are very green. The only downside was being hunted by a monstrous, blood thirsty horse fly. We had to defend ourselves with sticks. Five stars tho.
