The Forks Catahoula Paddle takes you through a short route in a beautiful area outside the confines of the levee that was part of the original basin. This area has very high banks in many areas – pushed up eons ago as the Mississippi River snaked its way to the coast. Because of these high banks, beautiful live oaks line the bayous. Take time to explore all the forks or just follow the route for a very nice 2.5 mile afternoon paddle trip.
Conditions to consider:
This route is simple and easy. There is current in parts of the route but they are normally very easy.
