Spent a chilly, early-spring afternoon here, a short drive west of Tallulah, and an hour east of Monroe, in northeastern Louisiana. Hiking trails throughout the 80,000 acre refuge, are both natural and on boardwalks, are easily navigated and fairly well maintained, and there are a good places to stop, view wildlife (heron, songbirds, ducks, wild turkey, deer, possum, raccoon, black bear), and feel far removed from civilization amongst hardwood trees, ponds, bayous, Spanish moss, saw palmetto, and even errant bamboo. Park Ranger, Jean Mikeal enthusiastically reaches out to local schools to encourage student trips and involvement in on-site programs. Hunting is by permit each winter. There are put-in areas and docks for boaters, as well as a visitor center. Wander by, wander in, and wander through this extensive park and appreciate all that it has to offer for yourself and generations to come.
