Cane Bayou is the perfect adventure for anyone looking to get off the beaten path when in New Orleans. Just an hour north of New Orleans, Cane Bayou takes you through the brackish marsh with lots of good fishing holes, straight to the salt water of Lake Pontchartrain. Birders will love the Osprey and Horned Owl's nests. Nature lovers will enjoy seeing alligators in their natural habitat. Rent a kayak and get some bait from Bayou Adventure in Lacombe and you'll be set for the day! Show more

This trail has lots of wildlife. Users have noted that the trail surface is often flooded, muddy, and/or overgrown and that you will likely need to bring the app or downloaded map because there are few trail markers. Although level, this trail does not meet enough of the guidelines to be marked as wheelchair or stroller friendly because of the uneven and slippery sections. Trail goers using mobility equipment or strollers may be able to complete portions of this trail in the right conditions with all-terrain equipment. Please read user reviews and contact the National Historic Park and Preserve before attempting with equipment.Show more
