How on earth could ANYONE call this a hike?... much less a beautiful hike. I've yet to find any trail in Louisiana to be a nice, beautiful hike. Louisiana is a trashy, humid dump.

Very good trail! There were different options you could take throughout the area by the parking lot. Very secluded too, not too much busy noise. Some parts of the trail were a little overgrown, but not too many bugs! Will definitely be back again!

A lot of construction going on but still enjoyed this out and back at the end of the hardwood trail. Fishing at the river, there are benches and port a pots. The couple little hills on the trails provided just enough resistance to get me sweating. Saw quite a few people walking along the tracks.

We walked some of this to get to the river walk trail. The entire part that we saw is laid with small-ish concrete gravel. Expect to be in the sun the entire time. If it's rained, there will be big puddles. We saw lots of flowers, and frogs. This is really nice for an easy walk (or run) off the beaten path; just prepare for sun, mosquitos, and ants in some places. Also, the walk back is very slightly uphill.
