I wouldn't consider this a "hard" trail at all. It has some decent elevation and tons of spider webs but if you have a walking stick you should be fine. Great hike. Took about 2 hours with some stops to look at birds and take pictures.

Moderate hills. Clear path. No other hikers. Very peaceful.

Decent hike. The distance is fine, doesn't feel like 5.6 miles when all said and done. However, this is a poorly marked trail. There were several times I had to back track to find my last red "marking" in order to find the trail again. Glad I did it, not sure I'll do it again.

Definitely not hard. Easy, except that it's not a gravel trail it's more like a scavenger hunt for the spray paint red marking dots in the forest. Trail also has signs labeled A1-A-17.

Trail has a lot of ticks. Pulled 15 off me and 18 so far off my dog. It's been two days since we went and I'm still pulling ticks off her. Other than that, the trail was fun. It got a little tough at the river bed because of all the fallen trees we had to climb over and there wasn't as many trees with the orange paint so it got confusing at times.

FYI To walk on any WMA you need to purchase the Louisiana WMA stamp, Get it online for two dollars per day, Rangers do look for these. Great hike for the family, just don't be like everybody else and bring a hiking stick and some water because it is steep in some areas. Going down is easy and you can see everybody huffing and puffing coming up, There are a few stations with stairs, use them to make it more enjoyable. At the entrance is a small box with parking tags to put on your car review mirror, it's an honor system and cost $4 dollars.

Awesome views, but a little more moderate then hard.

Fun hike. If you stick with the C hike the whole way you won't see any water. Still enjoyable. Done in 1 hour and 50 mins wit stops along the way

Beautiful day for a strenuous hike. The improved trail is a lot of up and down so if you follow the creek you can see a few waterfalls without a lot of leg work. Very peaceful during the week. Butterflies and little purple wild flowers right now. Weather was a little cool so it helped out too.

The trail is just great! It is wild, it is beautiful and it is peaceful. Birds sing along with you all the time. If you want to experience the real nature of hiking, Trail A is your destination. A friendly reminder is that it is 5.6miles long and the first part of the trail is not well marked. It took us about three hrs to complete it (with one meal). Beginners may feel a little bit hard to finish that. Good luck there!

Great trail. Part of the trail is through a creek which made it fun. More hilly than I expected for South Louisiana- which made it a pleasant surprise.

A good trail for a nice, quick outing with the dog. This is a pretty easy trail, but there are a couple of steep descents near the beginning that you should be aware of (the dog wasn't keen on these). We hiked clockwise; I don't imagine that going counterclockwise would be very feasible. It's well marked with orange markers, but these are more sparse during the portion of the hike in the riverbed; just keep following the river for about a mile. The final part of the loop follows the road, which leads back to the trailhead.

The Tunica Hills Wildlife Management Area has some of the most unique and challenging hikes you can find in Louisiana. Located just north of St Francisville this area is full of steep ravines, sandy bayous, and lots of interesting wildlife. Trail A is the longest of the three trails here, and the most challenging, due to a section that is not well marked. I don't recommend attempting this trail without a GPS as the trail is not well marked in areas. Overall a great hike!

Great for a day-hike! The first part of the trail follows an old road bed and then takes a sharp right into the woods. You drop down pretty fast into a creek bed that was dry in November. Lots of debris makes getting through this section slow going. Watch for the orange arrow as the trail turns back into the woods. After a good climb you stay fairly level for the rest of the trail. I would rate this trail as moderate due to a few steep descents that may give some hikers trouble.

Unexpected, being from out of state. I would put this trail as easy/moderate. There was a lot of trash and dumping around the park. Very indicative of Louisana. Once you realize that's typical of the people and outdoors, you move on. Someone with age or height problems might need a hiking stick. It's not rock climbing or extreme. Not sure why it's labeled as "hard."

Based on most of the reviews, y'all are all confusing this with "Tunica Falls" AKA Clark Creek which is the one you access by passing Pond Store. Clark Creek is actually a state natural area/park in Mississippi. Tunica Hills WMA is in Louisiana and is the property shown in this map.

Tunica Hills is a great hike! Lots of beautiful trees and a river bed. The only downfall was that parking was hard to find and there weren't any maps of the trails. However, trails were clearly marked as you were walking.

Beautiful trail for the location, and very easy trail which is great for walking with your dog or with your friends. I was honestly amazed to see such hills only an hour from Baton Rouge.

An extremely easy trail to hike. Very clearly marked and well kept. Wouldn't necessarily recommend if you are looking for an adventure, but not a bad trail for beginners.

Find trailhead through Google maps using Tunica Falls! It is very pretty area. We went 2 adults and a dog, CHECK everywhere for ticks(and very small ones too) because one of us and the dog had quite a few. Other than that it is hard terrain at timed and a heap of stairs but I say it was worth it! Awesome nature outing!!!
