6 Of The Greatest Swamp Hiking Trails Near New Orleans For Beginners

Louisiana may not have the rugged terrain that other states are known for, but just because we are on fairly flat land doesn’t mean that we don’t have some beautiful trails to show off. There are several swamp trails near New Orleans that are picture-perfect this time of year, and easy enough for beginners to take on with no problems. All of these trails are less than five miles long, so you can knock it out in an hour or two, but you’ll end up loving the scenery so much you might just find yourself taking your time to take in the views.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.
