Wonderfully peaceful hike on a boring Tuesday off. Took my dog for a 7 mile split and he loved it. Clean and just moderately hilly made for a nice easy incline for us.

I've walked this trail 3 times. I recommend it for 10 and over. Wear good shoes, trail can be wet and muddy in some places. Me and my husband like to eat lunch at the top of the bluffs. The view is well worth the effort.

Great trail . Well marked and drained. Hiked yesterday. Surprised a deer who was bedded down. Will definitely come here again!

Nice little trail for our Sunday hike. Enough elevation for some good exercise and also has a view of the lake most of the way. Nice little sandy bottom creek with a few different species of crawfish. Wooden bridge about a mile in from Pine Street where we parked. Saw some bluegill and other fish. Big gar slapping the water. Fun time on a Sunday evening.

Very peaceful hike. Wear shoes you don't mind getting a little muddy. Brought my dog along and she loved it

Nice Trail Really Enjoyed My Saturday Morning There Were A Few Trees Blown Across The Trail From The Storms That Blew Through Early Thursday But Other Then That The Trail Was Very Nice And A Good Change Of Pace For Getting Out And Getting Some Exercise

We walked the first 3 miles (3 miles out and 3 miles back) of this trail today. Great trail. Our new favorite trail. Because of the elevation changes I would rate it as moderate instead of easy. Nice lake views. Trail was dry even after all of the rain this week. Well shaded. Very well maintained and marked.

The trail was great! We saw some squirrels, baby hogs, lots of turtles, and some deer. They had some nice views and the lookout point had a beautiful view over the reservoir. This trail offered a great camping experience.

Good hike. Wild hogs are around so keep pets leashed for everyone’s safety.

Was impressed at the terrain change being that it’s Louisiana. Hiked it twice. Nice training grounds for longer distance hikes.

Nice easy trail. Around 5.5 miles.

My boyfriend and I went and we had a lot of fun. The area is really beautiful and the trail was really easy. I highly recommend it! It’s very easy to follow.

Well maintained with a couple of muddy spots. We only went 5.5 miles in from the Woodworth trailhead. Many of the azaleas we're in bloom and there were some sections where they were just beginning to bud. The trail must moderate because of its length, there was little elevation changed in the section we hiked but it was enjoyable nonetheless. We crossed over several roads which took away from the secluded feeling of hiking and you could often hear cars driving by. on the hike out we could hear many guns shots from hunters nearby also taking away from the quiet of the space. Overall it was great and we'll be back to hike more of it.

I wanted to start hiking regularly and decided to start with this trail. It was perfect! Just enough to leave me tired at the end, but not too tired to finish. There are some parts that are very steep, but there are stairs to help with that. Took my boyfriend and me about an hour and a half due to us frequently stopping to look at the plants/streams.

Great hike with barely noticeable rolling hills and very well marked. Low traffic. We went the opposite direction of trail mile marker signs, but it doesn't matter what direction you go in. There were a few wet areas that are closer to the lake that appear to be runoff streams, but all were manageable with hiking shoes. I expect recent rain may worsen the conditions. Wildlife - birds, squirrels, lizards, garter snake, speckled king snake, turtles, ducks and 2 wild boars. We noticed the boars from the other side of the lake which made last half of the hike a bit unnerving. We did not see them again, but there was evidence of very recent rooting directly on the trail. That was between the trail's actual beginning and 3 mile marked point. There were a few picnic tables off the trail in some areas. We ate lunch at an open picnic table where the RV's typically reserve because it was close enough when we were ready. The beach and day use areas are closed for use, but it is part of the trail that you walk on. Bugs were starting to show up bc of the temp increase so bring your spray! One application was good for the whole hike.

Loved this trail, I wasn't crazy about walking down the highway for the last 2 miles of it, but other than that it was great. There are only really a few spots that I would call scenic, but the scenery always felt like it was changing back and forth from hilly rocky patches to low woody patches, to a few sandy or swampy spots.

Perfect hike for March. Saw deer, squirrels, and turtles. Dogwoods were in bloom.

WOW - what a great trail! Incredible variety of geology for Louisiana - from rocky outcroppings to sandy-bottomed steams with cold, clear running water. A mostly easy to follow trail (I’m glad I had this app for a few sections) through old-growth pine forest with some hardwoods mixed in. Blooming wild azaleas and dogwoods round out the scenery. A few modest climbs but all in all, an easy hike through some beautiful scenery.

Late March hike - perfect conditions. Wild azaleas and dogwoods in full bloom. Gently rolling trail through mixed pine/hardwood/magnolia forest. Follow the lake shore with good views. Trail is open to foot traffic and bikes. Highly recommend.

We did a day hike of this trail in March 2019, we loved it. It was very clean and very well marked. Some hills offered some challenge, and a few places were muddy but we just hiked off to the side. There were beautiful, fresh spring streams. Watch your step for fire ants, but we didn’t see any hogs or mosquitoes (in March!).

The last 3 miles of this trail are the best in my opinion. The trail is marked EXTREMELY well. I am deducting a star because there are ALOT of signs of hog damage. We saw a deer and wild turkey today.

Very well marked trail. Lots of fun

I have been wanting to start hiking and this was my first hike, I loved it, there are some really pretty places, some nice hills to work out on. I would have liked it to be a tad longer but it was really great, very well marked there was no chance of getting lost.

Lovely hike, lots of interesting elevation changes, stairs to view from buttes, water features, vistas and about 1.5 miles. Took us 1 1/2 hr because of the stops at each butte. Some wet areas but not many. Able to hike entire trail.

Pros: wide trail, able to hike side by side, few rocks to trip us up Cons: same view for 1/4 mi, no maps to advise, rather boring To be fair, it was our last trail of the day and without a wow factor, we gave up. Trail was high and dry which was welcome after Turpentine Hill.

This trail not cared for like others. I would say it's primitive. Horses had been through recently and made ruts. It was muddy and slippery. I wrenched my ankle trying not to fall. We tried to make it to the vista view but turned around because the only thing we were seeing is where to step.

As of 03/04/2019 the entrance to the trail says closed until further notice due to the wet weather. There were lots of other forest roads in the area to drive, but none that I went down were any thing more that fire-road types. Still a nice place to go very close to Alexandira.
