There are a number of options with using the canoe trails within Fausse Pointe State Park.  The paddling is along borrow pits, pipeline canals and bayous.  The trails are marked by colors: Red, Orange, Blue etc.  Pick up a map when you pay at the gate to go into the park to see the color markings for each trail.  There are paddle-in campsites that you can rent from the park as well - perfect for your first overnight paddle trip!

Conditions to consider: The routes are well marked and easy to paddle.  Currents are a small issue - but not much.
