River Trail -- 3 miles

All trails are built over the swamp land below. These are wooden trails and bridges that are built and elevated over the land and water below. This is a great way to see the swamps and bayous of SE Louisiana. This also takes the worry out of encountering alligators, snacks and other animals that may be in the area. These are actual swamps that are along the Tickfaw River. When the river rises the swamps below fill with water. Sometimes the water rises so much that trails have to be closed and even the State Park has to be closed. The great floods of 2015 and 2016 flooded much of the park and caused closings for repairs.
