We all know we can find good Cajun food, jazz music, and the Mardi Gras festival in this state, but did you know it also has over a half dozen places to ride trails? This state is a great choice to take your electric ATV, UTV or dirt bike and do some trail riding. Below are a few places to take a look at.
1. Bonnet Carre Spillway
Approximately 10 miles west of the New Orleans International Airport. This is the core of the Reserve-Bonnet Carre Spillway Christmas Bird Count circle, and it is occasionally utilized to relieve excessive water on the Mississippi River by diverting some of it to Lake Pontchartrain. The spillway's undeveloped land spans 10 square miles of fields, marsh, and weedy waste areas, as well as some forests. The location is fascinating at any time of year, but more so in the winter.
