Description

This short extension is a 0.4 mile trail that runs along the Lower Kenta Canal and overlooks the Pipeline Canal. Sadly(?), the view of downtown New Orleans can be seen from the footbridge over the Pipeline/Upper Kenta Canals, so you won't have a wilderness feel.

Flora & Fauna

Alligators, wading birds, and turtles.

The Marsh Overlook Trail offers a scenic boardwalk experience amidst dramatic, wispy foliage.

Here's the end of the boardwalk where you and your family can enjoy the scenery and open space to relax any aching muscles before the walk back.

Another gator just laying around. This one was a decent size compared to most we've seen.

This was the biggest gator we seen this time around. Hopefully sometime in spring they'll be more.

Captured a Nutria Rat while it was bathing. Couldn't get a great shot due to people stopping and looking but it still came out ok.
