Summers in Louisiana can be brutal, but just because the temperatures are rising doesn’t mean you have to abandon your adventurous spirit. When you want to spend some time outdoors, but not necessarily commit to a full day in the Louisiana heat, these short and sweet summer hikes are just the ticket. All of these trails are under three miles in length, and each one offers amazing views of Louisiana’s most beautiful natural scenery.
