    Hey everyone, I'm new to this page, I was wondering if anyone knew of any decent hiking trails (not leevees) in southeastern LA. Now that it's not miserably hot I'd like to get out more!

    Thanks!

    Clark's Creek is awesome, waterfalls at the Mississippi/Louisiana border.

    Red Bluff is a beautiful spot too, but not in SE La...https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/mississippi/red-bluff-canyon-hike-in-foxworth-ms/

    Not the question you asked, but something to look at is Eagle Rock Loop in Arkansas if you want some more 'intense' hiking off the beaten path a bit.

    It's a 30 mile loop that takes 2-3 days to complete.

    Same ish driving time if you wanted to hit the AT approach trail.

    Don’t sleep on the Pinhoti either. It’s relatively close and is a great hike in the fall.

    Decades ago when I was hiking the Appalachians every year, I would prep by hiking the levee in St Bernard Parish with a full pack. I'm not sure you can even do that anymore, or if it's even a good idea. May sound boring, but I found it pretty interesting to see the goings on in the river, and I met a few people along the way. I saw my first 6 foot catfish while doing that. It was bigger than either of the two Vietnamese guys pulling it up the levee near Violet. I never knew those things were in the river until then.

    More central but there is Indian Creek Reservoir Loop near Woodworth. It is a 3.5 loop. Not a difficult trail, good reviews in general.

    Wild Azelea is also near Woodworth. I hiked (backpacked) the entire trail (Around 25 miles) a few years back and enjoyed it. It is point to point so we had two vehicles.

    Eagle Rock was a great trail, it is the closest trail that is in what I would consider mountains from where I live.

    Not very many great choices in our area, I walk the Atchafalaya levee for exercise.

    Agreed on all of the above.

    I'm actually hiking about 115 miles of the Ozark Trail later this month and am sooooo pumped!
