Named for the whitetail deer which can often be seen in this part of Louisiana, the White Tail Hiking Trail is six miles in length – the longest hiking path in Lake Claiborne State Park. While some stretches are steeper than others, visitors of all abilities should be able to follow this pleasant route.
Make the steeper hike up to the Lake Claiborne State Park scenic overlook, where you can enjoy fantastic views across the water and surrounding area.
Hikers of all abilities can walk this easy nature trail route which stays close to the lake shore. Look out for rare plants and flowers, as well as birds and deer as you follow the path.
