The One Loop Trail In Louisiana That’s Perfect For A Short Day Hike, No Matter What Time Of Year

Breaux Bridge is home to more than just crawfish, y’all. Just on the outskirts of town lies Lake Martin, one of the most beautiful lakes in Louisiana. Part of the Cypress Island Nature Preserve, Lake Martin is one of the state’s largest nesting colonies for waterbirds including anhingas, egrets, and those beautiful great blue herons. Whether you’re an avid birdwatcher or just looking to get outdoors and enjoy some beautiful scenery, the Lake Martin Loop Trail is just the ticket.

After you’ve hiked the trail, you may want to experience the lake from an entirely new perspective. Champagne’s Cajun Swamp Tours operates out of the lake, and they’re a fantastic company to go on a swamp tour with. Have you ever hiked the Lake Martin loop? Let us know in the comments below!
