You Can Explore For Hours Upon The Boardwalks At Barataria Preserve In Louisiana

Autumn is the perfect time of year to be spending your weekends exploring all of our beautiful nature trails and wildlife preserves in the Pelican State. Boardwalk trails in particular are a nature lover’s paradise since they allow you access to see parts of Louisiana’s wetlands that you just wouldn’t be able to see any other way. Luckily, the endless maze of boardwalk trails at Barataria Preserve will keep you occupied for hours.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately.

You’ll want to check preserve’s website beforehand, as they frequently do repairs on some of the boardwalk trails, but the preserve is typically open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
