Moss-draped oaks, placid green waters of a cypress-tupelo swamp, and lots of wildlife make the Barataria Preserve Trail a must-visit when in the New Orleans area. Three separate trails, mostly boardwalk, make up the path through this national park preserve. Amazing wildflowers line many of the paths; crawfish mounds dot the landscape; ruby-throated hummingbirds dart about; and don’t be surprised if you come up on a white-tailed deer walking the boardwalk.
