Burned Out Bridge

by Paul

Trip Overview

This is a back to nature kind of trip. We launch off of Old Hwy 90 About 2 Miles from Burn Out Bridge Boat Ramp, & travel the bayou towards the Boat Ramp. There are many routes and destinations. This route is good for the beginner paddler as the water is flat with low current. It can be a peaceful paddle or an intense exercise. Either way you can enjoy wildlife, fish, bank & set up camp, etc. The water is brackish, & you will see some alligators. It is a peaceful trip for 1-2 or a large group trip. There are motorized boats in these waterways but they are very courteous (low wake as long as they see you). I can't say enough about the scenery. This is 1 of our go to spots for a quick a trip on the water.
