such an awesome hike!

loved this hike!

what an amazing day hiking! The waterfalls are beautiful, the views were fantastic, and the company was the best! Definitely will be back! Hard to believe this place is only 2 hours from New Orleans!

Great trail. Lots of scenery and elevation changes.

Great little day hike! Lots of explore with several little waterfalls. Terrain gets challenging and at points you have to search hard for the trail but definitely a gem for southern trails

better put your hiking boots on!

Clark Creek Trail
Clark Creek WMA has two separate trails within the park. The first is a well trafficked and well maintained trail with stairs at steeper points on the hills. The second trail, the primitive tail is about a mile down the first trail and is called primitive for a reason. The second tail runs along the creek and has little to no marking other than small rectangular reflective yellow strips on a few of the trees along the trail. Waterfalls were quite deep but with very little water-flow as it was fed by a small creek. After heavy rains it can be seen that the water levels rise significantly. The hills are constant on the trail, either hiking up or down with constant gradient which makes for a moderate difficulty.
Witnessed dozens of grey squirrels and approximately ten chipmunks and was flagged by a startled white-tailed deer slightly off the primitive trail.

Good hike but can be kinda strenuous

Awesome hiking trails! This is a great place to go hiking! I have been a few times with friends but this time I took my 5 year old grandson to hike the creek and climb the rocks and he LOVED it! We are blessed to have something so cool so close to home. It took us a couple of hours to get there but it is so worth the drive (and the few "Gigi, are we almost there?" quips. Make sure to bring water, snacks and a hiking stick (you may find a hiking stick down the hill to the left of the restrooms at the entrance since we saw a caretaker throws ours there after we left them at the entrance for others to use). No matter how nice the weather is, you will need water and you will need a healthy snack for energy to get back to the entrance which is often uphill (we made our own trail mix with almonds, pecans, cashews, raisins, cranberries and dark chocolate chips). The hiking stick will come in handy when trying to cross the creek which you have to do many times if you're chasing the waterfalls and will also be useful when climbing hills. We used homemade insect repellent before going into the woods and we didn't get any bites or bugs. Also bring extra socks and shoes to keep in your vehicle. You will appreciate it when you don't have to drive home with wet socks and shoes. Enjoy what God has given us and what man has developed for our enjoyment!

Good day hike. Major downpour dampened the day but beautiful leaves for early December. Nice to see hills again as someone living in southern LA.

If you go to Clark Creek I would strongly advise you to go during the week while children (of all ages) are in school. If you want a good hike with some challenges I suggest you get a map and hike the primitive trail, it should take you about four to five hours. There are plenty uphill and downhill challenges, some areas you may have to slide or scoot down on your rear. It’s quite a surprise of a hike if you aren’t expecting anything more than moderate, some spots are downright tough.
November 25th 2017 was my third and last trip there. The gravel on the improved trail is not easy to walk on, especially where the grade is steep. I like the primitive trail and the creek trail but it’s sad how domesticated the area has become.
I like how difficult the primitive tail is, its good practice to stay in shape for long hikes but I believe that many don’t understand the difference between hiking the creek trail, the improved trail and the primitive trail. The primitive trail is about 75% in the woods and the creek is, in the creek and the improved trail is nearly all gravel.
My last two trips there were very disappointing as I passed several youths with boom boxes and sports drinks, which were tossed into the woods. Dogs were left to wonder and children were pulling up the vegetation.

Intense workout but awesome!

Today was a perfect day for hiking this gorgeous trail! We primarily hiked along the creek which seemed much more adventurous than staying on the trail. If you choose the same option be ready to get your feet wet. The several waterfalls were lovely and the sound of the falling water quite soothing. I would consider the hike moderate intensity. We look forward to exploring again in the near future.

Great day out doing woodland photography. Some STEEP areas. Walking the creek is easy. Bring LOTS of WATER and snacks. Very nice trail for woodland and waterfall photography. First waterfall about 15 minute hike

Best in the Baton Rouge vicinity. Challenging areas. Bring waterproof shoes. Easy to make a wrong turn. Nice waterfalls just minutes from the trailhead. Others are little more challenging to find. Directional signage little confusing. Took a couple Wrong turns but not that bad. Preparing for Humphreys Peek in Flagstaff next week. Kind of like comparing riding go-karts to driving the Daytona 500. I think my son and I are in for it. The altitude and difficulty at Humphreys is over the top compared to what we did today. Still, a great outing at Clark Creek. Recommend for all experience levels.

Awesome trail. Pictures don't seem amazing but the trail is.

Following the creek is an easy hike. If you follow the trail loop it is a bit more challenging. Some steep parts with narrow parts of the trail. We found six of the seven waterfalls, some were running dry. Bring water, the two of us went through three liters plus a few water bottles.

Creek is the more popular attraction and you’ll see plenty of people and dogs. We didn’t see anyone doing the main trail until we came back up the creek by the three front waterfalls. Definitely worth it, earlier the better for us.

Beautiful land with a challenging hike over some steep ridges that lead down to some very nice waterfalls.

We had a great time! It was a little tough in some spots but manageable. We kind of did a zig zag between the Improved and Primitive trails and even went off course to explore a little. The scenery is beautiful!

Group of us went in middle of September. My first time, but they had been there several times. Saw a few of the waterfalls. They are not big falls, but lucky we have something like this in the Deep South. It was crowded because there was also a race that same day. Definitely will go again! Oh and bring river shoes!

Hiked this area three times and enjoyed it every time!

Not Moderate! Definitely Hard! But an awesome trail! Marked fairly well, and truly beautiful sites along the way. Bring a BUNCH of water! I went through an entire 2.5 L Camelbak bladder during the hike. All in all, my favorite hike in the state. This is a must try!

great daytime trail but hard to navigate and posted maps are almost impossible to navigate. been here more than 80 times in the past 30 years but still have not seen all 7 waterfalls, almost need a guide to know where to go. also no cell phone signal anywhere near here so google/other navigation apps are not useful seeing as there is no gps signal to locate your position.

Great trail. Well maintained and awesome scenery. Some of the steepest grades I've seen in South MS/ LA makes for one heck of a workout. Print out some maps ahead of time and avoid the "prime" times to avoid the teenagers. I will be going back.

Loved it and can't wait to go back! Next time I'll bring my hiking stick to help go up and down hills and water shoes.

Beautiful trail and several waterfalls. The Primitive trail should be rated hard in my opinion. In some parts we were literally rock climbing very steep ravines. Loved it but be sure to bring plenty of water!

My sisters and I completed this hike as our last stop on a MS waterfall tour. The trails were well maintained although I second the suggestion from another hiker to bring a printed map. The stairs and trails were well maintained. Gorgeous scenery as you hike the creek bed. Bathrooms were clean and appreciated.

Trail does not follow map on the app but is still an awesome hike. Couple of steep hills that feel great to climb. Bring water shoes to walk through creek and waterfall area if you don't like wet feet.

Recently done with two 30-somehtings, a 9 year old and 6 year old.
Impressive topography as compared to most of South Louisiana and Mississippi.
Be sure to check the forecast well. We got caught in an unexpected downpour. There is no cover from the rain and the clay soil gets very slick very quickly. It also dried out fairly quickly though.
Minimal signage apart from a few small map plaques. Be prepared with a printed or downloaded map, because cell signal is spotty.
The kids were able to handle everything, with some assistance. They really enjoyed trekking down the Creek.
Lots of groups of young people, but no one causing trouble that we saw. (other than the annoyance of many of them carrying speakers)
Be prepared to have to head up to head out
Definitely worth a day trip.

We hike here a few times per year, great hike. Several waterfalls. What you forget is that you were dissenting the whole time, therefore heading back to the parking lot is always a beast.
