Type of Route
1 square mile

A natural paradise, Chemin-A-Haut State Park overlooks Bayou Bartholomew from a high bluff. Rent a canoe on park grounds and launch into Bayou Bartholomew for a fascinating, winding excursion — just under a square mile — through aquatic vegetation and wooded banks. Perhaps the most magical part of the journey is rowing into the hollow resting space of Castle Tree, a centuries-old cypress known for its strength and beauty.

After paddling the route, explore the rest of this beautiful state park. Younger patrons will enjoy the playgrounds and wading pool in the swimming complex, and the picnic area is perfect for a barbecue. Big Slough Lake offers fishing from the shore. Extend your stay with a cabin and enjoy a beautiful sunrise before a hot breakfast at Delta Biscuit Co.
