Driskill Mountain - Louisiana Highpoint

Took my dog and it was a nice, short walk along the trail. The lookout was nice for Louisiana. I've hiked mountains in PA so this was the shortest hike yet!

If you want an easy walk through the bayou this is it! My wife and I have lived in the area for 11 years and anytime we have guests visiting Jean Lafitte NP: Barataria is always a winner. Each time I have come here I have seen alligators. If you're not seeing any, try slowing down and watching. Frequently I've heard people complain that they didn't see anything as they race down the trail. If you get the chance, this is a must!

Nice day hike and lots of water to stay cool. Hills are steep so bring a walking stick.

Great place for a chill ride. Nice paved roads for biking, skating, anything with wheels. Also, some trails off the paved road for some off-road. If you go through Abita check out the Brewery for some free beer and some AC. All around great ride.

French Quarter

I fell in love with New Orleans after only one short walk around the French Quarter. It was the first of many, and I moved there briefly. I still miss it to this day. It's truly a one of a kind unique experience, and the "energy" alone there, combined with the people watching opportunities make it one of the best walks in the country.

Definitely not a nature type of hike, but there are definitely some animals to watch, and some "wild life" along the way. One of a kind street, the only one like it in America, and worth the experience. You find some major crowds during Mardi Gras, moderate crowds on any given night, all hours of the day or night.
