I’m so happy this place exists. After moving to very flat Louisiana from Maryland I miss being in a forest with hilly terrain. These trails fulfill all my hiking desires. Lots of variations: steep hills, flat trails, shade, sun, walks along the creek beds, even several areas with steps for those who want the solidarity of a staircase to climb rather than the hoof it on the land next to it. And of course, waterfalls abound. We saw at least four of them, and I think there are more. I saw lots of dogs on this trail as well, especially along the creek beds, and they looked like the happiest dogs on the planet. Worth the drive, I only wish it were closer to New Orleans!
