Clark Creek Waterfall
Only an hour away from Baton Rouge this park is an escape for locals who wish to temporarily get away from the city. You can hike or bike on the trails along the creek - some are paved and some are primitive. The park has about 50 waterfalls, some with a 30-foot drop. Make sure to bring plenty of water, snacks, sunscreen. There is small fee for entry to the park so have some cash on hand.
