Located in the Kisatchie Wilderness Area, the Backbone Trail is one of the most popular and scenic hikes in all of Louisiana. The trail leads through heavily forested terrain with high ridges that provide excellent views. The hike can be done as a point-to-point hike by shuttling vehicles between the two trailheads. If shuttling cars is not an option, walking 2.5 miles on the dirt road that connects the two trailheads provides the option of a 10-mile loop.
