50 Hikes in Louisiana

Walks, Hikes, and Backpacks in the Bayou State

Nina Baxley

An all-new 50 Hikes guide to the surprisingly diverse hiking opportunities in Louisiana.

Hikers can experience a surprising variety of habitats and terrains in Louisiana, ranging from hilly pine and mixed bottomland hardwood forests in the north, to the picturesque sub-delta and delta marshes of the state's southeastern tip. The state's varied habitats make it an ideal home for a surprisingly wide array of flora and fauna, and mild winters make spring and fall ideal bird-watching opportunities for hikers.

The hikes in this new guide range in length from 1/2 to 31 miles, from a casual stroll to a 3–4-day backpack. An overview chart makes it easy to choose a hike for every ability. Each hike description includes mile-by-mile directions, a topographic map, information on hiking time, mileage, and trail conditions, and knowledgeable commentary on the human and natural history you'll encounter along the way.
