Special Notes:

Durden Hills Nature Trail

Durden Hills Nature Trail is a series of three hily loops located in Bayou Bodcau Dam and Reservoir. A favorite among mountain bikers looking for difficult climbs and steep drops, these loops are also great for hikers looking for a moderate workout. There is no camping allowed on the trail itself, but the Bodcau campgrounds are right next door. Look out for snakes, deer, and turkey.
