Bayou Cane - Kayak Trip / Canoe Trip
Submitted by: cyriaque
Small, easily accessed bayou with unique juxtaposition of pine trees, then marsh, then Lake Pontchatrain. Takes about an hour to get to the lake. Nice marsh ponds if you take a cut to the right about 2/3 way down. Coming out into Lake Pontchatrain is rather dramatic. Lots of fish. Saw 2 eagle nests, assorted herons and other birds and one 5' alligator.
From Baton Rouge-east on I-12 to Abita Springs/Fountainebleau State Park exit. South to Hwy 190. Left about 2-3miles to Bayou Cane on eastern edge of park.
Excellent spot to park and put in.
