Bogue Chitto State Park Main Loop is a 7.0 mile trail located near Franklinton, Louisiana. The trail is good for all skill levels and primarily used for hiking.
Hiked the whole Gorge Run trail. It's absolutely beautiful, and the trail is well marked - we never felt lost once. We crossed paths with employees there caring for the park twice. We saw a bunch of small creatures, babbling streams, a bit of swamp land, and the river. It's not as primitive as I like, but it's gorgeous: this place is worth a hike at least once. The facilities are nice, and if you hike the whole Gorge Run trail, you'll cross restrooms and trash cans around half way at the lake. If hiking the Lower Gorge Trail, don't forget bug spray. I'll be going back for tubing and canoeing this summer - I expect it'll be way better than tubing at Amite.
Completely impressed by the beauty around every bend of this hiking trail. Will be back again and again..
I hike this trail several times a month. It is a great trail and marked well except down around the river. Also rising river regularly closes sections of trail. Has good elevation changes for South Louisiana.
Great trail, well marked, well traveled. Great spots right off the trail and next to the river to take in the scenery. Sadly, there is a good bit of litter in a couple of spots (most likely caused by tubing on the river).
my favorite horse riding place in Louisiana just wish they would allow camping with horses
