    Quick, need destination ideas, due to rain out.

    We have a four day weekend due to Mardi Gras. My hubbie and I were planning to hike Standing Indian trail loop in North Carolina. Unfortunately it is confirmed that the weather is a wash out for Saturday and Sunday.

    Where, within a 10 hour drive of New Orleans, are some great places to hike and hang? Everything to the North and East of us is washed out until Sunday afternoon.

    So, I'm thinking NW Louisiana Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas.

    Azalea Trail north of Alexandria, LA is a maybe, but we are hoping to make the LA hang in March so would like different options.

    Sorry, I can't help with a hike suggestion, but I'll bump your thread back to the top. Somebody will chime in. Good luck!

    Thanks for the bump Pipsisswea & Ewker, Ouachita was a step in the right direction.

    We are heading up to Eagle Rock Loop and plan to have a three night hang over in Arkansas. Took 3 hours of checking routes, weather patterns and drive time to narrow it down.

    Set your hammock up inside one of the bars on Bourbon Street! You would be guaranteed to have a great time during Mardi Gras!
