6 Rugged Forest Trails In Louisiana That Will Bring Out The Explorer In You

The Kisatchie National Forest is the only National Forest in Louisiana, and it’s perfect for the outdoor explorer. Featuring over 600,000 acres sprawled out across seven parishes in Louisiana, the Kisatchie is one of the most remote and isolated places in Louisiana, and one of the most beautiful. There are countless trails throughout the forest, which are perfect for those moments when you want to get away from it all. Lace up your boots, because these hikes may not resemble those paved trails you’re used to, these trails are more primitive and rugged than your average Louisiana trail.
