  • This place was wonderful. To be among the foilage, creek, and falls was so relaxing. I am not an active person so I had to break a time or two after reaching just two small falls. You might want to ha...  more »
  • This was an awesome hike! If you're looking for an outdoor activity that is uncharacteristic of the area (waterfalls and hills!)- this is it! It's about a 2.5 drive from New Orleans and worth it. Dogs...  more »
  • This is a beautiful area and the falls make it worth the trip. Our group was 69, 62, 61 and 6. Our goal was to visit the falls on the improved trail, but due to a wrong turn, we ended up on the primit...  more »
  • This is one of my favorite places ever! For us south Louisiana people that are both blessed and cursed with wide flat terrain, this place of beauty is a wonderful get away. It has beautiful, lush trails spotted with waterfalls and winding creeks. My husband and I love to take the primitive trail. It is not overly long or difficult, but its not too easy either, and since its only two hours away, its our go to day-cation.
  • I love hiking here always so much wildlife. Never any litter and the water is always flowing and clear I've been here multiple times and never been disappointed.
  • The kids loved the hike 8 and 3 years. Waterfalls are worth all the walking
  • A chalanging hike that any one can do. The waterfalls are beautiful and the trails are clearly marked. I come here again and again. Bring your bug spray though. The good stuff. And 4 dolars for the honer box. You can be ticketed by the oark ranger if you dont. Bring your swim suit and bath in the falls. The cold water will restore your soul.
  • Great day hiking! Terrain like nowhere else in 100 miles. Waterfalls and great trails.
