Trail Overview

This trail begins at the north end of the Town of Simmesport, LA, and follows dirt roads and trails along Bayou des Glaises until you make a right turn to start the trail to the southern point of the Grassy Lakes WMA. Along the way, there are 1000's of acres of farmland and historical sites to see, such as the Sarto Old Iron Bridge (L'ancien post de set de Sarto). This trail leads to deep swamp areas with some really good oxbow lake and lake views. It is not uncommon to see a variety of wildlife, such as alligators, during a trail ride.
