There was water this weekend about 3 miles or so in, but you can tell it’s starting to get dry enough that backpackers needing to purify should be prepared to cut their trip short and head to a campground if that area becomes standing/dry.

The GPS version of this trail that's on the Alltrails database is only accurate for the first mile or so of the trail. After that, it goes way off track where there is no trail at all. Do not follow the Alltrails map of the trail; it is not accurate. Lake Claiborne's actual White Tail Trail is much longer at 6 miles in length. Follow the park map, it is more accurate. When the weather cools, I will come back to do a recording of the actual trail. Otherwise, it is a nice trail.

trail is mildly overgrown, if people in your party (kids) are wearing shorts, you're gonna have a long painful itchy trail lol. it's more scenic in the beginning. it's about 300 ft total elevation gain, and it's a hot one in August! I love Kisatchie though...awesome area!

Trail from the Evangeline primitive camp area west is getting dangerous. Reported trail conditions to the forestry service about the condition of the trail trail. Told them someone was going to get hurt.

More trees down from the last storms. More trail erosion from the flood earlier in the week. The small bridges washed away. Ask the forestry service at Kincaid why the trail is not being maintained and the told me lack of funds and man power. Told them the trail is getting dangerous for MTB and someone was going to get injured.

26 july 2019 got to the trail head later than i wanted. started around 930am and finished around 330 pm ..i thought i was in decent shape but the last couple miles on pave ment reminded me i was not in great shape. next time ill take at least a 30 min break after halfway point... most of my breaks consisted of taking my pack off and standing or sitting on ground for 5-10 minitues...overall the trail was easy to navigate. definitely will do again in the fall when its not quite so hot...

Trail is dangerous right now. So overgrown in areas you can’t see the trail in front of you, could easily crash into someone head on. Several large trees across the trail that has been there for a long time. Little or no trail maintenance being done.

Beautiful trail, well marked, but a little overgrown in some places. I entered at the Woodworth trailhead parking area on Castor Plunge Road, but BE WARNED, when I got back to my car the next day all of my tires were stolen... so that really sucked. I recommend parking at Woodworth Town Hall and walking the 1.7 miles through a residential area to get to the trailhead, just for the added safety of your vehicle.

Hiked w/ full packs preparing for AT hike later this summer. Good trail with a good elevation (for Louisiana). Hiked in mid-June-hot & humid. Occasional cloud cover & breezes made it tolerable. There were a few good campsites which would make this a nice overnight hike in fall/winter

Excellent trail in LA with rolling hills, water views and a couple of campsites. One downside is there is really only 1 excellent campsite that has spectacular views. It is on the edge of a “cliff” overlooking the water. If it’s taken, your kinda screwed, but if not, you’ll enjoy a great sunset and awesome sunrise on the water.

The trail was a good 2 miles if you stayed on just the loop! It was just difficult enough. Very grassy and rocky. Not maintained perfectly, but enough to hike easily.

Nice little trail for our Sunday hike. Enough elevation for some good exercise and also has a view of the lake most of the way. Nice little sandy bottom creek with a few different species of crawfish. Wooden bridge about a mile in from Pine Street where we parked. Saw some bluegill and other fish. Big gar slapping the water. Fun time on a Sunday evening.

Very peaceful hike. Wear shoes you don't mind getting a little muddy. Brought my dog along and she loved it

The trail was great! We saw some squirrels, baby hogs, lots of turtles, and some deer. They had some nice views and the lookout point had a beautiful view over the reservoir. This trail offered a great camping experience.

I would recommend this trail for anybody who is into any level of mountain biking. There are so many different options you could ride this location 10 times and not cross The same section of trail twice. For a hiker looking to get started out this is very much the way to go. The park itself is immaculate. And that is not overstating things in the slightest. The parish parks staff do an absolute excellent job of maintaining the facilities. The best time to come is obviously in the middle of the week. The park office opens at 8 AM. Get here early and you can have the pick of where you want to set up shop. They provide both RV and tent sites. I Hammock camped in the tent section where they provide fire rings with a swivel grill if you want to grill something and they even provide 110 power outlets for camp lights and such. They also sell wood for three dollars a bundle however you’re better off bringing your own because they cut it and sell it immediately, meaning green unseasoned wood. I will be coming back and I will be bringing a fishing pole!
