I have personally hiked these trails and created guides which include GPS track, maps, and video guide for your trip planning. *Note that these trails are all in Central Louisiana near Alexandria
One of the more popular backpacking trails in Louisiana. Beautiful vistas and sandstone hills make this trail special.
CAROLINE DORMON TRAIL
Named for the famed forester who was responsible for the establishment of this National Forest.
Cypress and Water Tupelo trees line the many boardwalks that make this trail so special. There are some small elevation changes that will give hikers a good challenge and there's also lots of wildlife to view.
Combining 3 popular trails into one longer multi-day trip. This is the best way to see what Kisatchie NF has to offer hikers.
The longest "trail" in our state. This is a Rails to Trails project that is mainly used for ATVs. Hikers are welcome but don't expect a wilderness experience.
WILD AZALEA TRAIL
The longest footpath in Louisiana. This National Recreation Trail is one of my favorite hikes.
KISATCHIE TRAIL PROJECT
A long-distance trail concept, combining the best backpacking trails in Louisiana.
