Give me some good hiking trails in Louisiana.
I know there are some short ones in various state parks. I'm looking for stuff 5 miles and more. Trying to get ready for some hills in February.

Yeah, I know anything around here will be flat. Don't care. Thanks.

Tunica will be your best bet i think. Its a very pretty hunk of land and its got hills.

Its hunting season, so be sure to wear hunters orange. Lots of idiots with guns out there.

I've not figured out why it is still closed too.

That said, not really sure what MDWFP could do to you if you went hiking there.

Trespassing maybe?

Tunica Hills is a Wildlife Management Area. I wouldn't go bouncing through there with hunting season coming up.

If you're thinking about Clark Creek, they've been shut down since early Covid days.

You should hike mileage with whatever gear you will use in February. Put a lot of mileage in with shoes, backpack, etc. You need to train your body and cardio system for both mileage and hills though. They are very different. To train for hills, without actual hills in your trails you should add in stair climbing. Find a tall building and climb alot of stairs.

re: Give me some good hiking trails in Louisiana.
Another thing to consider when hiking in the hills is that while uphill is tough on cardio, the downhill can be brutal on your quads.
