Did this in the winter so was not as colorful and does get a bit monotonous but some parts are very pretty with plenty of Irish moss hanging from trees. Also did not encounter mosquitoes or snakes.

Backpacked the trail last weekend. Very well marked and maintained on the section we did. Found great camping spot near clean water. Some elevation throughout. Great trail

Fontainebleau State Park is really nice! I really enjoyed seeing the old live oaks with Spanish moss. The park was once the site of a sugar cane plantation.

We completed this trail on nov 22nd one day after some heavy rain and it was only a little muddy in a couple spots and it was easy to walk around it. I would like to take this trail in the summer because it passes by a beach and it would be nice to take a dip after some hiking. The trail is marked very well and is well kept. There are some small slopes which makes for a fun walk and would like to come back with our mountain bikes. I particularly liked walking on all the soft pine needles.

First time riding the Blue Trail today. I rode 4.9 miles and it was clearly marked, not too hard of a trail but it was a great ride with different elevation changes . I will definitely ride it more often.

All flat with minor obstacles. Not much to see.

Park maps and mile markers on the trail indicate the trail is over 19 miles. I did this as a day hike. It has a nice variety of trees, including cypress, beech, oak, and others. Long boardwalks stretches with gentle, rolling hills. Water level is quite low, as others have indicated. Two feet or more based on the tree markings that are normally submerged.

We went in early November. It was beautiful and well marked. We didnt see any wildlife except birds and squirrels, but that may be due to high weekend traffic? There wasnt a TON of people..just 15. The trip on my garmin watch said the trail was 19.5 miles...so be prepared for that. Highly recommended!

Kind of a family friendly type of vibe, which was lame. That said there were a few hidden gem jaw droppers and beautiful birds of all species.

Great mountain biking trail. I would say ideal for those not looking to work too hard for the miles. Perfect for pulling my son in the weehoo. We also picked up some geocaches along the way which were super kid friendly. All-in-all, a great day in the woods.

Quick out and back.

The water level is low right now. A lot of the areas that would normally lend themselves to filtering are dry. I stayed at campsite 6, and choose not to filter from the lake. New this year was the fact that I could not park at the North Landing Trailhead overnight. Last year, I was able too. This allowed me to hike into the main campground for nighttime. This year, I had to alter my plans last minute. I did not run into any hogs, but did have coyotes howling at one point in the night. Armadillos are everywhere, and we'll come close to your camp at night. Because of the cold, bugs were not an issue.

Good trail. Short enough to take the kids but with options to lengthen also. I would rate as easy and flat. Good to take your pets. Close to the water so would probably feel safer with a dog to scare snakes but didn’t see any on this trip.

Nice hike. Seen deer.

Bugs bad obviously it’s Louisiana. And uneventful no wildlife other then one squirrel for my dog to case on her 40 foot leash. Come on State parks lift the leash laws I’m sick of getting kick out of park after spending my money.

We took this on the first cool day we’ve had, and it was very pretty. I had two novice “hikers”. I was happy that there was enough scenery to keep them out of their phones. Bugs weren’t bad this day, so I definitely recommend it during cooler weather. Didn’t see any wildlife other than squirrels, but the beauty over the marshy areas and the trees more than made up for it. Super simple walk!!

Now that the weather has turned cooler, this is a great hike! I hiked 3.1 miles out and back from the Lake Valentine trail head, for 10K total. Started early on a Saturday and only saw 2 others hiking.

Went after it rained on Friday. Was a bit muddy and had some good sized puddles in spots. All in all was a nice trail with beautiful scenery.

Entered a loop section of this trail from the northern most trailhead located 1/4 mile east of Barataria Pkwy. We hiked 2.5 miles SE to the parking lot. We were bushwhacking vegetation the first .6 mile section which wasn’t fun, which included areas of soft, moist, squishy ground, muddy. At one point my Vasque hiking shoes suctioned and I darn near stepped completely out of them. We ducked numerous spiderwebs across the trail. Lots of bugs, a few squirrels, and one deer. NO snakes. The main part of the loop was closed so it was a straight shot the final 2 miles.

nice trail, well maintained. watch out for the huge spiders between the trees, they are just about head level. Saw a wild boar, and heard more.

Great trail for hiking/biking. There were a few trees down, but it was easy to get around them. We saw several bikers and hikers with dogs also. Foot bridges were all in good shape.
