Nice easy hike. Lots of signs describing the different trees and eco systems. Very nice welcoming center with friendly staff. Very nice welcoming center with friendly staff. The Louisiana State Arboretum is a preservation area, so no dogs or other pets are allowed and is foot traffic only.

This was such a great trail. Our 7 and 3 (almost 4) year olds did a great job! It took us about 2 hours and 15 minutes. There was SO much to see on nice clearly marked trails. We saw deer, beetles, a variety of mushrooms, Christmas lichen (never seen that before), raccoon tracks, and wild berries. There were plenty of spots to sit and take a break. Even on a 90 degree day with 50% we really loved it.

The nature center is a fun stop, bathrooms were nice, and the splash pad was the perfect way to end the day! We will definitely go again!

Really easy hike around several different short trails. Lots of wildlife that's pretty used to people so you get great photos. Make sure to bring bug spray.
