Quick out and back starting from Twin Bridges (Hwy 488) trailhead with beagle on leash. Perfect February day: clear, cool, no bugs. Lots of water from recent rain. Underbrush was generally bare with spring still weeks away. Trail is clear and well-marked. Scenic woods, small streams, nice overlook. Very enjoyable. Dog had a blast. On short drive after hike, five deer crossed in front of me, Forest Road 273, 3 miles south from junction with 488.

Really nice walk here with my son today.

Evening walk/run. Stopped at Cafe Du Monde. 65 degree cool weather tonight.... Ya you right

Decent paved trail through the LSU campus and the surrounding neighborhood. Paved the whole way. Pretty level. Entire lake loop is just over 4 miles.

Nice trail. The trail head sign is in the campground area and not the beach area. Bridges are very slick after and during a rain. Great trail to get your hiking and biking legs back going after winter before going on a longer adventure.

Decent trail for what it is. Not much scenery outside of walking on river bed, which was nice. Areas with brush and fallen trees on trail

It’s 20 miles flat, not 17.3. Great hike, lots of elevation change so it can be tough. Pack light

Great trail, well marked, it took just under 2 hrs with a couple of stops for water. Dont think I would mark it as moderate though more like easy, but a great stroll through the Kisatchie National Forest . I would definitely recommend it, perfect for clearing the mind.

Quick advice. Check your geo-location before you start. There are two trails and I followed a blue triangle trail through and around for a while before I realized I was not on the main trail. Still very nice and was able to do some trail running but not a loop :)

This trail is relaxing & the trees are beautiful, but there's not much to see this time of year. I saw three white-tailed deer, but that's about it. I'm sure it's beautiful when the azaleas are in bloom. I posted a video to YouTube. You can find it by searching for Nash Potatoes Outdoor Show. Enjoy!

It was ok. View was decent.

I really enjoyed this trail...it's very relaxing and the trees are beautiful. There are some blown down trees, but it's no big deal. I posted a recording of my adventure on YouTube. You can find it by searching for Nash Potatoes Outdoor Show. Enjoy!

New Orleans has a bona fide river walk that's clean and well kept. You can look out over the Mississippi and even occasionally spot steam boats tours. It's picturesque and unlike anywhere else in America.

One America's best walking cities with incredible history and unusual architecture and cuisine. Exploring New Orleans is one of the highlights of the whole country and cannot be overstated.

Muddy but well maintained. Not a challenging trail. The single track trail by Sandy Creek has been hardly used.

This trail is very well maintained! There are two trails, one easier and one slightly harder. The view is beautiful and totally worth it!

For being only my 3rd trail I'm saying this was a good hike! Several good elevation changes that surprised me for this region. Got the heart pumping. Went a few days after a pretty good rainfall and most of the trail was dry. What was damp or muddy was where you expect water would have pooled during a rain fall, so if you use common sense your good. It is a preserve so no pets allowed, my dog would have loved this one, but he'll just have to wait for the next. I will definately return! I want to primative camp using the lake trail, I'm just new to this and not exactly ready for 17 miles juuust yet.

Was a decent trail. Took our dog out he had a blast. After mile 2 though you start to realize how redundant it is. We detoured a few times to shorten the amount of turn arounds. Lots of mosquitos.

Very good beginner trail. Good to take the kids on.

This trail is always well maintained and blazed. Pretty easy for anyone wanting to get into hiking/backpacking.

Excellent hike with lots of short hills and windy paths to keep it interesting, but not difficult. Beautiful scenery.
