Sprawled out across seven parishes in Louisiana, the Kisatchie National Forest is a nature lover’s paradise. Louisiana’s only National Forest features over 600,000 acres of rolling hills, longleaf pines, and beautiful forested terrain that is broken up into five Ranger Districts across central and northern Louisiana. There are countless primitive trails throughout the forest, but there’s one in particular that will take you on quite the adventure, and the views are nothing short of mesmerizing.
