Kisatchie National Forest

It isn’t just for hikers though. This national forest also offers an abundance of horseriding trails for the equine enthusiast.

Chemin-A-Haut State Park
One of the most beautiful places in northern Louisiana, Chemin-a-Haut State Park is nestled among the cypress trees and a beautiful place to escape to when you want to watch the leaves change.
When Fall creeps in, you will be in awe of the cypress trees nestled along the water. This place is magical, especially in the Fall.
You can enjoy one of two trails that wind around the park. Both are easy and well-marked, making them perfect for novice hikers. If you prefer to see the colors from the water, you can even rent a boat and view the Louisiana Fall foilage from the pristine water surrounding this park.
Lake Bistineau State Park
With five natural trails to explore, Lake Bistineau State Park is a nature lover’s dream. Explore the park, enjoy the stunning sunsets, and take in all of the Fall foliage.
If you are a horse lover, you can forego the hiking trails and head out on the 6-mile equestrian trail instead.

Located on one of the country’s largest man-made reservoirs, North Toledo Bend State Park is a stunning area to explore in the Fall.
You will love exploring the over 900 acres! There are two trails, camping, hiking, and picnicking areas. So hit the road and take a trip to North Toledo Bend State Park this Fall.
Lake Claiborne State Park
Lake Claiborne is a popular travel destination in Homer in the north of Louisiana. It is beloved for its hiking trails, especially when the crisp Fall weather starts to creep in.
You can walk around the water’s edge while watching the sunset and really just enjoy the peace and quiet of nature.
