Beautiful boardwalk with tons of sights. Lots of bugs but it is early July. Plan to come back in the winter.

Brenda, when you get to the top of the hill by the entrance gate and building the trail crosses the road between the building and the turn into the park. If your going east to west you will come out of woods after climbing 2 good hills, cross road (between building and gate) and walk down a high line for another 1/2 mile before turning left into woods. There are some trail makings across the big road (evergreen rd) from main entrance that you can see from where you cross the park entrance road. It is confusing.

We took all 5 of our kids for a first hike here, because of this app. I myself completely enjoyed this, but our kids range from 12 - 3. Overall they really enjoyed it, it was great exercise for everyone and something fun but different we could do to get out of the house! We did however try to find the water, so when we saw a glimpse we followed that trail to the right, taking us off the hiking trail and on the biking trail. We saw some beautiful views this way though! We did have to come up by a little bridge and finish our walk along the main road because of this. But all in all! I really enjoyed it and was able to get a bunch of photos! I’m so excited for my next hike! I will be sharing my photos on my Instagram: Mrs.diiiirtyy

Trail was heavily over grown and bridges were all either washed out of about to be. Trail is confusing with the loops it brings you on and fairly redundant a majority of the time. Good ups and downs but then bring you out to walk in a power line area and just ruins the feel. Ended up losing our way a few times and then finally gave up and walked around the baseball field and went back to the car. Would not hike again. Probably wouldn’t recommend either. The trail is also longer than the AllTrails says it is.

Beautiful trails. Very well maintained. This was the Green route.

My favorite short trail in Louisiana so far! Marked off well, cleared, just some horse flies.

This trail is as good as you'll get for mountain biking around New Orleans. It's well maintained and an easy, fun, flowy track. Make sure to check that it's open and that the Spillway itself hasn't been opened before you head out. And if you're riding anytime other than the winter, be aware there are lots of biting insects - mosquitoes, deer and horse flies, etc. They're not a problem while you're moving, but when you stop for a rest or water break, you WILL get bit if you're in the forest parts of the trail. For this reason, I will only ride this trail outside of the winter months; I will never hike it.

This is very flat walk in the woods and the finale is Bayou Cane, however, not really impressive. Mosquitos were everywhere! Entrance fee is $3

This was the best run ever but you can ride bikes walk and just stroll I did a run for a 15 mile stretch and it was wonderful I came from Colorado so I had been looking for a nice trail and I definitely found it I got at least 27 miles to play with and I love it

Did the entire trail this time. Pretty tooth trail, but I’m into that kind of stuff. If you’re already wore out or don’t like climbing much then I’d suggest wrapping up your ride at the horse trailer parking. Although you’ll miss out on a few tight descents, you’ll also miss some tight and technical switchback climbing. Which again is my cup of tea hence my rating. Definitely one of the most fun and longer trails in the area.

Great trail! Bring lots of water and check for ticks but I enjoyed myself throughout the trail! Saw a deer and several birds, the bench at the end was wonderful place to reflect.

North end of the trail from the boat launch parking lot to the Hwy 3032 overpass was easy and enjoyable. But that was the only stretch that was usable. The trail along the river is washed out at the overpass. You can take a fork to the right just before that spot, but you must still cross a shallower wash before reaching a clearing under the overpasses. There is a homeless camp under the southern lanes of the overpass, so I broke off the hike and backtracked to the trailhead. Beware of snakes. Saw two of them (the swampy area to the west of the trail is a perfect environment for them). Also, river erosion has reached the edge of the trail in a few spots, so watch your step. As a strictly a out-and-back trail, it's a nice mile and a half.

The trail entrance to the left will take you on a trail that is well marked by orange triangles and will eventually take you to the intersection where you first enter the campground area, then crosses to the east side of Bodcau Dam Rd. The trail entrance to the right takes you to the far side of a chain link fence that holds sand/gravel for the WMA. It's not a hard trail (it has a couple of benches along the way to stop and rest), but this section is poorly marked. Even backtracking on that part of the trail, I saw no markers. But, I do plan on returning and exploring the trail on the east side of the road soon. Got in around 4 miles total for the morning. Bring water, and bring head covering. Pestered by flies buzzing around throughout the walk. Otherwise, very peaceful environment. Good to get away from Shreve/Bossier noise for the day.

I bought a Mongoose to navigate this trail. There were a lot of above-ground and exposed roots on the path—be prepared for a bumpy ride. There are two trails: beginners and advanced. They are intertwined. There is also a nominal fee of three dollars, per person, to enter the park which closes at 8PM. I was completely exhausted after I completed this one. It was a great workout. It is a very well-kept trail.

This is the new trail path since the tornado damage last year. They will not be opening the old section that this trail map shows any more.

My son and I just finished the trail, I wouldn’t call it easy by any means. The trail hasn’t been maintained in over 3 years. We where hiking/backpacking/camping so we had 40 lb. packs. The trail is actually 20 miles and very little accessible water. A lot of loose sand do to the dirt bike and atv traffic. We loved it but definitely go prepared.

Trail is well maintained and good for a beginner hiker or family. Part of the trail is closed from storm damage, but still a nice hike. There were deer everywhere along the trail today.

Boardwalk over the marsh for 0.5mi, then gravel road for a while. Little shade on trail, so pack water.

Blue trail - loop Excellently maintained, several different loops of varying distances and difficulty. Nice wooden walking sticks are provided at the entrance to borrow. This is also a mountain biking trail so be cautious. Would be an excellent trail for running.
