A hike to a number of creek cascades, with some summer splashing along the way.

Many small cascades can be found along this creek. On hot summer days, it's a great place to jump in and cool off.

Waterfalls and Hills!

If you go to Clark Creek Nature Area, be prepared for two things: 1. You will get wet! 2. Your legs will feel like jello after hiking up hills for a few hours. Its a bummer that you can't camp here, but it is a great place to spend the day.

Hills, y'all, hills!

This was a really nice hike going towards the creek, but when you're so excited about exploring someplace new you forget you have to go back. Going in was all peachy keen cause that meant going down hill. The going back part meant going up hills. Lots and lots of hills. I'm from New Orleans, y'all. We have flat and flater. It's so flat we built a hill (Monkey Hill in Audubon Zoo) so kids of New Orleans could see what a hill looks like. I almost died trying to make it up these hills. I started praying for the strength for my short legs to make it, and I guess the good Lord likes me and I made it out. Other than that, it was a really nice hike!

Best Hike In South Louisiana

This is a great hike and probably one of the hilliest that you'll find in South Louisiana. It's definitely a bit primitive - you'll be walking along the creek bank for much of it and climbing over boulders in more than one part. Expect to get your feet wet!
