This is a beautiful boardwalk trail for those who enjoy scenic walks and nature. Great for people of all ages. Trail is next to the museum and there is plenty of paved parking available. The trail is moderately walked and is a little known treasure to the locals. The trail is a couple of miles down the road from the Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve.

This is certainly one of the most child friendly nature trails in this area. It’s all on a planked path with guardrails “above” the swamp. I only saw two big turtles and one snake, but this is after that cool snap we’ve had. The museum where you’ll park is worth the visit too! Worst case is $6 a head but seniors, etc. are discounted. I’ll definitely go back and will recommend it to visitors. Watch for the speed trap going though.
