More of a 'moderate' trail. A lot of fallen trees to climb over or under and, as other hikers have mentioned, the red flashes are sometimes hard to spot (this is primarily because the paint is a very dull red). Trail has altered 'direction' in places so the uploaded GPX shows the trail as of 2018-11-24. All in all a very enjoyable 'back to the woods' kind of hike.

better marked this time. easy enough to follow visually or with the app. had to slow down a little to keep following the blazes due to fallen trees but that made it interesting. a beautiful forest with some grand old trees. just enough elevation change to make the exercise better. great trail!! thanks to whoever maintains it.

Completed the trail yesterday with Troop 312. Big elevation changes make it a welcome contrast to our home topography in LaPlace. Made the loop in just under 3 hours with a lunch stop. The creeks were mostly dry, so we didn’t get to observe the waterfall. Beautiful day otherwise.

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!
