Lake Ouachita State Park Caddo Bend Trail 10/25/2008

I had never been here before but it looked good based on the website. It is a peninsula sticking deep into the lake with the trail going the perimeter of it. The total length is about 4 miles and is not easy walking in many places. It took me about 70 minutes to get here from my WLR home. The nearby visitor center opens at 8 in case you need a restroom after the drive but there are campgrounds and other facilities nearby if they are closed. It took me about 2.25 hours to walk the loop. It wasn’t as birdy as I hoped although it was a good workout.
