I wouldn't consider this a "hard" trail at all. It has some decent elevation and tons of spider webs but if you have a walking stick you should be fine. Great hike. Took about 2 hours with some stops to look at birds and take pictures.

Decent hike. The distance is fine, doesn't feel like 5.6 miles when all said and done. However, this is a poorly marked trail. There were several times I had to back track to find my last red "marking" in order to find the trail again. Glad I did it, not sure I'll do it again.

Definitely not hard. Easy, except that it's not a gravel trail it's more like a scavenger hunt for the spray paint red marking dots in the forest. Trail also has signs labeled A1-A-17.

The trail is just great! It is wild, it is beautiful and it is peaceful. Birds sing along with you all the time. If you want to experience the real nature of hiking, Trail A is your destination. A friendly reminder is that it is 5.6miles long and the first part of the trail is not well marked. It took us about three hrs to complete it (with one meal). Beginners may feel a little bit hard to finish that. Good luck there!

The Tunica Hills Wildlife Management Area has some of the most unique and challenging hikes you can find in Louisiana. Located just north of St Francisville this area is full of steep ravines, sandy bayous, and lots of interesting wildlife. Trail A is the longest of the three trails here, and the most challenging, due to a section that is not well marked. I don't recommend attempting this trail without a GPS as the trail is not well marked in areas. Overall a great hike!
