Great trail! Well marked! Beware of mosquitoes and horseflies.

Note to all this trail is currently closed with all other trails at Chicot state park. If you check online or on their social media nothing indicates that the trails are closed. Wish we could’ve enjoyed the trail.

Not sure if it’s because we are new hikers but we had to turn around midpoint because we did not know where the trail continued. Not sure if the signs of the trail were over the next road outside of the state park entrance but it was disappointing not being able to finish the hike. Nice inclinations for new hikers like us. 3$ per person entrance fee. Beautiful scenery.

I’m not sure if it’s because I’m a new hiker but we lost the trail and couldn’t figure out how to circle back to our car. The signs stopped midway and we had to turn around and hike what we had hiked. 3$ fee. We went around 3 pm and there was no ranger around to ask why the trail ended what it did. Other than that, it was beautiful! Lots of small streams. Didn’t see any wild life. Nice inclinations for new hikers like myself and my friends.

The trail itself wasn’t bad, but horse flies are RIDICULOUS!!! They swarmed us. Go when it’s cooler or wear long pants/sleeves and bring spray.

Good trail in Louisiana to get some practice with elevation gains. Not super high but at least gives you a workout. To note: Camp sites are spaced pretty far apart if you are backpacking

Nice trail. We got out to get some fresh air stop us from going stir crazy. Plenty of shade and decent elevation changes for Louisiana.

This is a cute park. It looks like a nice place for camping and families. I was not impressed with the trails offered.

Good hike with elevations. Had a nice break at one of the lakes that has an air conditioned bathrooms. Filled the Red diamond trail but one section was not marked well. Wear a lot of big spray and hydrate too!

Awesome trail. Saw snakes and other wild life. Flooded in some areas and they are very slippery. Very shaded and beautiful. Would recommend.

Easy to tell where the trail is with all of the ATVs etc that used the trail. if hiking would recommend going before/ after it's opened up to the OHV(off highway vehicles)

Very very little actual trail. Their marked “hiking trail” is just a strip of grass along the parking lots. Very little signage directing you to landmarks, but even if there were signs, unless you enjoy views of parking lots, not worth the trip.

The trail is in nice shape with a few, expected, sloppy spots after the recent rain. Apply bug spray or wear your thick skin.

Long walk in the mud getting bit by bugs before you get anywhere notable or picturesque.
