This trail has a very nice view but with the New Orleans heat the smell of sewage on this trail is very hard to look pass. This trail is better suited for the fall season.

Great biking trail, not a lot of scenery besides the typical swamp land. Well maintained paved trail. Depending on your skill level it can easily be navigated in a day. It's a hot ride but passes by several areas with water, food, shops, etc. Take water and snacks with you just in case. It is very hot during the summer months, we enjoy the ride more during the cooler months.

Very easy, all flat trail. If it has rained recently expect some puddles to navigate around but nothing major. During the summer months the trail receives little to no breeze so if it's 90+ out expect the trail to be 100+ and very humid. We find this is a better trail to walk during the winter months.

View of Mississippi River great

Been here several times, both walking and biking. Black top tip to tip with marked crossroads, and there's alot of them on certain sections. No dogs allowed. All flat ground. Several entrances and exits, but very few bathroom facilities on the trail so be prepared. Horses are allowed on parts of the trail but I've never seen any.

Decent trails, slightly rough in some spots but nothing that the average person couldn't handle.

It is Louisiana so expect hot with suffocating humidity for the majority of the warmer season. Mosquitos are plentiful as well.

Great hike. Very swampy. If you love alligators this is the trail for you! Just kidding but you are definitely exposed to the elements out here. Beautiful views.

This was my first and my go to place to walk. Love it! Very comfortable

Enjoyed a nice run along this path the morning after too much food and drink... tried and succeeded in sweating it out of my system.

Love my Blue and Purple Trails (I live 5 minutes from the state park)

Make sure you read the description. It is a scenic byways, not a hiking trail. The 17.2 miles is all road through some beautiful country. There is a Longleaf Vista Trail (1.5 miles) that loops at the Longleaf Recreation area, but that is not this trail.

Trail starts downtown Shreveport and ends at a loop just passed Shreveport dog park at Stoner Avenue Boat Launch

not much to look at while walking at the top of the hill/levee dunes and very isolated when walking alone
besides that you have to turn around and walk back and look at the same boring stuff to get back to your car

rode my mountain bike on the trail yesterday kind of challenging at times but a find ride

Beautiful views, plenty of spots to sit for a break or just to take in the views. Next to a huge indoor mall...

Enjoyed our quick hike at Sam Houston! First hike of the spring. Weather was nice and warm finally. The beginning of the Orange Trail was a bit muddy. The trail was clear on the river side. Saw one cottonmouth, little garter snake, wood ducks, squirrels, frogs and turtles. Still pretty rough looking from last year's flooding, but close to the house and a nice trail. Looking forward to coming back when we have more time to do the longer trail. Only saw one other couple walking, super nice. Enjoyed our morning walk! Spring time is here! Watch for snakes and roots.

For a clear bike path with few views OK. For a hike really boring with views of the river hidden behind buildings and trees!!

Easy hiking but not much to see in December. Cooler weather made it pleasant nonetheless.

Careful after rain. Those bridges get slick. Busted my butt when my tires slid on the bridge decking. Roots get slippery too.

Beautiful! Rode through the woods and saw 3 Bald Eagles flying around just overhead, then rode out on the boardwalk in/on the big marsh...nice view over the water. Then we rode over to the pier at the day use area where there’s a spectacular view of Lake Ponchatrain and the 24-mile road bridge running across it. I would love to come back again when we have more time to hang around.

Used to love riding around the whole area both the ranger district and the logging roads in my jeep with the top down. Miss those days. The main road and several others are the only ones paved. The dirt roads in the district are taken care of really well. Don’t go on the logging roads without 4 wheel drive though.

Just a little local park trail. Not bad if you're just looking for a decent place to get a little exercise, but nothing too exciting here. Trail not marked well, just start at the playground and follow the paved walkway adjacent to the ball field. The dirt trail that branches off of the main trail is a more fun and challenging detour and it eventually circles back to the main paved trail. I wouldn't say it's worth driving any distance to see but the kids had a great time exploring.. saw a couple of bunnies and a few squirrels and birds... so if you don't mind some traffic noise from the interstate, it might be worth checking out if you live in the area.

Great for long, relaxed bike rides and runs. A good cycling community shows up almost every weekend day.

Nice for a neighborhood trail. not worth driving more than a few miles to get there.

This is not a trail. It’s just a long road in a forest. I’m not sure if I’m missing something but I drove for miles and it was just a road. We were very disappointed.
