Escape to nature's tranquility at Caney Lakes Recreation Area in Kisatchie National Forest. The Caney Lake Trail takes you on a scenic journey around two beautiful lakes, each offering a unique experience. Upper Caney Lake boasts a serene atmosphere with lily pads and a winding shoreline, while Lower Caney Lake is twice its size and perfect for water skiing.

The trail meanders through diverse landscapes, from picturesque hardwood bottomlands to hillside pine groves, and offers stunning views of Upper Caney Lake. A footbridge overflows the canal connecting the two lakes, adding to the natural charm of the area. In the fall, the changing colors of the leaves enhance the beauty of this scenic spot.

Whether hiking or biking, the trail offers a mix of terrain, some more challenging than others, but all worth the effort. Plan your visit to Caney Lakes Recreation Area and experience the peacefulness of nature.

For an in-depth study of the area’s foliage, visit the Cypress Nature Study Center, a wetland with exhibits and displays. The center has several paths for leisurely hikes or nature walks. For the floral enthusiast, stroll through the sweet and vivid botanical gardens at the RW Norton Art Gallery in nearby Shreveport.
