Take The Trail

The 1811 Slave Revolt Trail follows closely the pathway the original participants took on their journey toward freedom. Follow in their footsteps on bicycle or foot along the current levee pathway, or follow along on the Great River Road. The route will take you on an approximately ten-mile trek between the 1811 Kid Ory Historic House in LaPlace and Destrehan Plantation in Destrehan (slightly longer via car, and if high-water detours are needed). The trail will take you across the Bonnet Carre Spillway and several small towns along the way.
