“An inclusive run through the Bayou Sauvage National Wildlife Refuge with great views of wetlands and a variety of birds.”— Ben Rosenberg
Turn right and follow this levy-top trail to begin a nice out-and-back run. Enjoy a number of vignettes overlooking wetlands and lakes to the sides of the trail. I would highly recommend this path for bird watching. The local literature (available for free at the parking area) suggests that there are over 255 species to be seen throughout the year.
There are also tracks of wild hogs and other small mammal scat.
