Louisiana is known for its swamps, and there is no better place to get up close and personal with these green, murky waters than walking Trail C at Lake Fausse Pointe State Park. The trail winds its way over a magnificent cypress swamp via boardwalks and climbs up and down ravines along the wide banks, sloughs, and bayous of Lake Fausse Pointe. Make this into a real adventure by backpacking into one of the trail’s eight primitive campsites.
