I like this trail more each time I go. While I prefer making the journey for the challenge of Clark's Creek, these are great trails that are closer to home that I use for maintaining endurance. The loops and trail system interconnect well, and you can easily make it a 2 mile or 10 mile trek depending on what you're looking for. There's plenty of wildlife: gators, deer, rabbits, turtles, snakes, and plenty of armadillos. Personally I love the armadillos! If you don't startle them, they're amusing to just sit and watch for a while. Many times you can even go up and pet them. Most trails I just complete the trail and I'm done. When I'm here the wildlife is so inviting I like to double back and hang out and observe more. So while it is an easy and flat trail, I find it peaceful and enjoyable enough to keep coming back pretty much weekly.

This trail is really versatile. Great for a biking work out, or just a relaxing stroll in the forest. Either way bring bug repellent. The trail is maintained by NOMAMBO (New Orleans metro area mountain bike association). Fill out a weekend permit for free from the recreation center and pitch a tent. I also bring my Kayak.

Visited this park for the promise of top notch trails. Had a very pleasant experience and there is definitely good quality trail. Since I wasn't feeling like an all-star I completed approximately half of the bicycle trail (10 mile). The trail is very footy and definitely heavily used. Therewere some areas that were dull and uninteresting but the technical areas of trail made up for it. The trail crosses the main road several times as well as the easy trail so it's easy to exit if you're having an off day or just not feeling it. Glad we made the drive out, take a tent and make a weekend of the park!

Walk it sober at 5am Thursday thru Sunday. You will see what a zombie apocalypse looks like. Watch out for broken glass and oyster shells. Seeing people in this stupor will make you control your alcohol intake.

This trail doesn't exist. It sounded like a great trail so I drove out only to find nothing. Should be removed from list.

Very nice park and trails. Well maintained with some nice hills. Part of the park has a beach and a kids splash area which can be a little noisy at times. I went yesterday and hardly anybody was there and the whole park was quiet. I saw three deer and a rabbit.
