When visiting Tensas River NWR, take a walk on the Hollow Cypress boardwalk to the observation tower overlooking our cooperative farming units. Also, visit the Rainey Lake trail to see what the Rainey Brake Observatory and Rainey Lake piers have to offer. And don't forget to go for a drive on the Wildlife Drive, a 4.5-mile driving loop where you have good chances of seeing songbirds, white-tailed deer, Louisiana black bears, and much, much more!
This 4-mile loop trail is rated as easy and is good for kids and dogs. Pets must be on a leash at all times and please pick up after them.
