50 Hikes in Louisiana: Walks, Hikes, and Backpacks in the Bayou State (50 Hikes)by Janina Baxley
Synopses & Reviews
Hikers can experience a surprising variety of habitats and terrains in Louisiana, ranging from piney woods in the west to bottomland hardwood along the Mississippi floodplain, to the picturesque swamps and marshes in the south. The state's varied habitats provide an ideal home for a wide array of flora and fauna, and its mild climate makes fall, winter, and spring excellent seasons for hiking. Louisiana is located along a prime corridor for migrating birds; as a result, many of the state's trails offer bird-watching opportunities for hikers. The hikes in this 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.
The surprisingly diverse hiking opportunities in Louisiana.
