The Hickman Trail Loop is a moderately difficult trail that traverses through varying trail types but is predominately upland pine hills. Although the Hickman Trail is a loop trail, it can be used with the Little Creek Trail Loop to extend a visitors experience.
At a Glance
The Hickman Trail has a daily use fee of $5 per operator which can be paid at the trailhead.
Directions: To get to the Hickman Trailhead from U.S. Highway 165 in Ball, go north on U.S. Hwy 165 to Louisiana Highway 3130 and turn right (east). Travel on LA 3130 until it becomes a gravel road. Go left at the Y junction of FR 104 and FR 129 and take FR 129 to the trailhead sign on the left. Use caution while traveling on the paved portions of old Camp Livingston due to adjusting soil humps which have raised portions of the cement roads into what acts like speed bumps.
