Backpack- Wild Azalea Trail - LOUISIANA
• What we'll do Backpack Wild Azalea Trail, Louisiana's longest trail, 26.2 miles. Hike through rolling hills,peaceful creeks and magnolia-lined ravines with blooming wild azaleas. April 20, Day 1 - Meet at the Woodworth Town Hall parking lot at noon. From noon to 1:55 pm will will be transporting cars to the end near Valentine Lake. At 2:00 pm we will start the hike from the parking lot to Little Loving Creek. Distance 8.6 miles (4-5 hours). April 21, Day 2 - Hike from Little Loving Creek to Evangeline Camp. Distance 9.6 miles (6 hours) April 22, Day 3 - Evangeline Camp to Valentine Lake. Distance 8 miles (4 hours). We will load up as many hikers we can and drive back to the Woodworth Town Hall parking lot to pick up cars. This is through hike, we will need to drop off at least 1 car just outside the Valentine Lake Recreation Lake Area. I would like to have most cars at the end of the trail. I'm using the trail guide from 50 Hikes in Louisiana: Walks, Hikes, and Backpacks in the Bayou State, First Edition Paperback –by Janina Baxley (amazon $18.96). Ideally we plan to stay together, but please be prepared to hike the trail as a solo hiker. You can request a trail map at the Calcasieu Ranger District Office.

There seems to be plenty of water to filter on the trail. Bring a water filter • Important to know This link shows the elevation along the trail. https://www.hikingproject.com/trail/7024246/wild-azalea-trail
