    This trail ends with a spectacular bridge over a canal near Bayou Coquille. Although all trails are perfectly maintained, the heat may tire you, and the nature may overwhelm you. Do not give up. The sights at the end are worth it.

    This trail starts at the second parking lot (no restroom). It is part-boardwalk, and part gravel. The trail goes through a slightly different habitat from that around the Palmetto Trail.

    The Palmetto Trail starts at the first parking lot (visitor center), near the Bayou des Familles. It is almost one mile long, and you need to backtrack to come back. This trail is almost entirely constituted of boardwalk - some wood, some synthetic. The path itself is very clean and flat. The nature, however, is pulsating and intense.

    While you are less than 15 miles from the French Quarter - as the corbeau flies - you are also in a deep pocket of wild nature. Do cover your head, use insect repellent, and use plenty of sunscreen.

    On the day I visited, I drank a quart of water while visiting (the heat index was over 100 degrees).
