This Underrated Hiking Trail In Louisiana Leads To Jaw-Dropping Views

It’s the perfect time of year to get outdoors and explore some nature trails. The temperatures have dropped a bit, the air is crisp, and the mosquitos are (for the most part) a distant memory. We’re always looking for new trails to explore, and we’ve found a National Wildlife Refuge in Monroe that has some trails that lead to incredible views that you need to see.

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. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

You can find the refuge at 480 Richland Place Dr, Monroe, Louisiana 71203. The trails are open seven days a week during daylight hours and there is no charge to enter.
