The Catahoula Ranger District has a number of trails for visitors to utilize. From OHV trails in the Camp Livingston trail system, the Stuart Nature Trail, to the Glenn Emery hiking and biking trail. Scenic forest views await the adventurer who travels the trails.
Visitors to the Stuart Nature Trail can expect an easy 1/2 mile trail that loops from and to the Stuart Lake Campground area. The trail travels up a tributary creek and goes through various types of forest settings and vegetation. Wildlife enthusiasts might be surprised by the presence of various species of animals along the way and the bird watching is not half bad either.
The Stuart Lake Recreation Complex is equipped with restroom facilities, trash receptacles, water, picnic areas and barbeque pits, swimming, fishing, camping, an open air amphitheater, group picnic shelter and the Stuart Nature Trail and the Glenn Emery hiking and biking trail. Visitors should be aware that the Stuart Lake Recreation Complex is a seasonal recreation area and should contact the Ranger District Office for more information. Generally, the area opens in Spring and closes in the Fall.
