Piney forests, rolling hills, five fishing piers, and a beautiful lake draw visitors to this quiet, majestic state park. Designed to keep the focus on nature, park facilities blend with the natural landscape to enhance the outdoor experience of this 655-acre park. Fishing piers and boat docks attract visitors to Lake D'Arbonne, the marvelous 15,250-acre centerpiece of the park. Recreation on Lake D'Arbonne is tremendously popular among locals and visitors, and record freshwater catches of bass, crappie, catfish and bream make Lake D'Arbonne a fishing haven. Wide open areas of the lake, about seven miles from the park, appeal to water skiers and pleasure boaters. The boat launch at the park opens up all of these opportunities to outdoorsmen. Tree stands in the lake captivate photographers, as do the towering pines on land and the rich diversity of wildlife and birds that make the park their home. Bring your binoculars and camera to capture the wonders of the natural world from our beautiful nature trails. Cyclists will enjoy the challenge of the rolling hills of the park as a starting point for biking excursions into the steep inclines and scenic beauty of North Louisiana. Lighted tennis courts add to the activity options available for all visitors. Return for a picnic under the canopy of pine trees and celebrate the magnificence of nature preserved.

I love this trail! I usually hike it for 3 miles. It's peaceful and the trees are amazing!

The white trail is well marked, however my son and I walked well over 4 miles in what was supposed to be a loop but ended in the cabin area and not back at boat launch where we started. I would recommend to bring a gps or map.

Good trail but not secluded. Easy hike would be great with kids

Easy well marked trail for most of the time. Came to a section that ran into parts of the campground and lost the trail. Too much around people for me.

There are several trails to chose from depending upon how far you'd like to hike. We took the white trail which starts at the Visitor Center and loops around the lake. Beautiful views of the lake especially off of the docks. Trails are very well marked. There's also a disc golf course set up along part of the trail, very cool (don't forget your frisbee!).
