Louisiana Map

My husband and I had a nice, snowy hike today to the highest peak in Louisiana while passing through the state. I would definitely describe this as “easy” and “over before you know it,” as it only took us 14 minutes from our car to reach the summit on the blue trail. Temps of 20 degrees felt nice a crisp.

Walk this at least twice a week with my boxer. Great atmosphere. You can chose concrete or dirt trail by walking next to concrete as is been worn down by folks. You will see the occasional horses on the horse trail. Lost of birds and photoesque type opportunities.

This trail is a shit-hole. Poorly maintained, and poorly marked. Run Backbone if you want a real challenge.

Wonderful trail, but the signs can be a bit confusing

Visited the area a few years back and walked around in the early evening before things got very crazy. Very enjoyable without the crowds

Nice out and back trail with good opportunities for birdwatching, foraging, and camping. At points the road joins the trail causing a bit more trash to show up, but overall very accessible, peaceful, and well-maintained.

Trails have just been worked on. Need folks to get out there!

We were the only people on this trail on 1/5/18. Weather was 29-37 degrees w/partly sunny skies. The trail was well marked with red blazes though it does cross the road a few times, we had no problem picking up the trail. One water crossing that was deeper than ankle deep but there was a fallen tree to go over. Trail was well maintained and no roots invisible under leaves covering the ground.

6.2 loop. Bathroom at the 3 mile point and water available.

Nice trail by the water. Hoped to see a little reptile activity but the weather was a little too cool.

Easy hiking but not much to see in December. Cooler weather made it pleasant nonetheless.

Variety of trails at this refuge. We combined the trails to make a long loop around the lake and along the river. Not a difficult hike, well marked. Several benches along the trail for anyone who may need to take a break, also found a cutoff where there was a nice outlook on the river. We took the dogs, and they had a wonderful time! Good little hidden hiking spot in the Shreveport area!

This is just a connecting trail between the Nature Center and Gum Cypress trail. Nice boarwalks.

A great short trail to add to the other trails at Tickfaw State Park. Nice view of the river at the end.

Not sure how to change the status but 3.8 miles of trails are re-open! Need people to get out and wear the repaired trails in! The sooner the better!

Great day hike! I will be back!

this is very nice.

New Years Day. Very cold today but good for bird viewing and trails were clear of all water. Wonderful opportunity for family ramble.

Careful after rain. Those bridges get slick. Busted my butt when my tires slid on the bridge decking. Roots get slippery too.

busy and loud at nite, much like red light district in Amsterdam.

Decent food and drink but prepared for tourist prices.

A sight to see for anyone passing through new Orleans.
