Louisiana Trails present a spectacular path of endless greenery, with majestic hardwood and pine forests towering overhead along the journey. Farm and pastureland dot the landscape as well. .

Dozens of bridges (trestles left by the former railroad) along the Trails traverse its many streams and lakes, as well as a few swamps and beaver ponds. Wild flowers and flowering trees give splashes of color along the Trails during spring, summer, and fall. Winters are generally mild.
