better marked this time. easy enough to follow visually or with the app. had to slow down a little to keep following the blazes due to fallen trees but that made it interesting. a beautiful forest with some grand old trees. just enough elevation change to make the exercise better. great trail!! thanks to whoever maintains it.

Great trail! Many people from relatively flat Louisiana May be surprised by this beautiful piece of the Kisatchie Forest that features rocky hills and scenic overlooks. The trail is in good shape and Fall colors give you plenty of scenery along the way. Be prepared for walking on rocky terrain, fairly steep ascents and descents, and creek crossings. Perfect for an overnighter or a long weekend.

Only hiked a couple of miles in from the CD trailhead. Was pretty brushy, but the trail was evident and it was marked well. Was worried I wouldnt find a good place to set up camp, but found the perfect cleared spot before the sun set. Saw 2 deer on the way back.

Started at the Southern entrance near the C.D. Trailhead. Was marked very well the first mile, but I lost the trail about 2.5 miles in. I don’t know if I took a wrong turn or there weren’t blazes at that point. Bushwhacked a bit to match up with the trail according to this app, but the trail was not there. At that point I was discouraged and headed back (which was tricky). Decided to hike into the Caroline Dorman trail, which was very well marked.

Even though it was stated to be accessible year round it was not 11-16-18. There was a locked gate prohibiting entrance.

We took the guided hike. Great experience. The ranger was very knowledgeable. Nice easy trail that was well marked and maintained. Property Point is a world heritage site. Great history. Glad we took the guided hike.

Perfect trail for beginners. Great views of kincade reservoir.

Great Louisiana Trail. Pine Forrest, sandstone rocks and a couple creek crossings. Trail is well marked and fairly clean.

Great trail run. Beautiful scenery! Absolutely loved the GIANT BAMBOO!!! Need more parking, lot full due to people fishing at the end of the railroad trail. Will return.

A lot of construction going on but still enjoyed this out and back at the end of the hardwood trail. Fishing at the river, there are benches and port a pots. The couple little hills on the trails provided just enough resistance to get me sweating. Saw quite a few people walking along the tracks.

Great little trail! Especially great for kids. Really feels like you are in secluded wood trail but not too far out from town. Pavilion at end is great place for picnic. Lots of cute bridges and stairs. Really well marked.

Love this trail. A Mountain bike trail very well kept and / but much travelled. Be aware of the mountain bikers and travel the trail in reverse like they suggest.
Scenery is great and overlooks the River at one point.

Nice trail. Stroller friendly. Made for a good run.

My husband and I had great runs on this trail! We run separately due to speed differences and both got off trail and turned around in different spots. I would like to see more trail markers for newbies like myself but getting turned around just adds to the experience. We live close, we will revisit this trail many times! This trail is not stroller friendly but is kid friendly.

Short trail along river off from boardwalks. Goes out and comes to a point on river then quits at riverside. Slim trail and brushy. Beware of snakes and alligators at creekside.

Trail running. This trail is very nice. The trail head starts as a nice open developed path, within a mile it slims up a bit but still wide enough for the few families with younger children to walk thru and complete. The back half southern part had a few mud spots and a random log across the path from the recent weather but other than that, nice. The third part of the trail goes back upon the raised wooden walk and over the swamp to beautiful scenery, a small river and much wildlife. Even seen a decent sized gator out for a swim. This is the longest of the three trails to enjoy in TSP. This trail isnt far from my home, 15miles or so, so we will return.

Beautiful trail. Stroller friendly. I use a bike stroller, my tires had no problem going through mud and over tree roots. Will be a little tougher for a traditional stroller but still possible. Few mud puddles but easy enough to go around. Nice views of the river. Dog friendly. Family friendly. Trial ends on the boardwalk, you can cross to the right to go over the river or go left for nice elevated views above marsh lands.

Easy.. beautiful view of the river .. too short

This was a very simple, yet quaint little trail. It felt like I was far away from civilization breathing actual fresh air. Lots of benches for resting points so it's a great trail for any and all ages. I'd go back if I was near the town and needed a quick walk in the wild.

More of a hunting trail. Overgrown and marked with blue diamonds spray painted on the trees. Stopped a mile into the trail to turn around.

My go to trail. It’s 19 miles. I like campsite 1 &3.

live not for i hike at least once a week when weather is nice I see deer squirrels pigs read fox and if you lucky you may see and otter lot of ducks in the winter when you get next to the lake

awesome trail for hiking or offroad

Trails overgrown. Not much to see. If you are just looking for a bike trail. This is probably better for such. Not that it was terrible, but not worth the gas to get out here.

Moderate trail some difficulty, had fun ,enjoyable .

Completed the trail yesterday with Troop 312. Big elevation changes make it a welcome contrast to our home topography in LaPlace. Made the loop in just under 3 hours with a lunch stop. The creeks were mostly dry, so we didn’t get to observe the waterfall. Beautiful day otherwise.

Beautiful greenery. Trail was well maintained gravel with little over grown onto the trail. The pup really enjoyed it! Make sure you let them potty before starting or else you’ll be carrying doggie bags the entire trip. I learned that the hard way.
