Couturie Forest- New Orleans, Louisiana
The Couturie Forest is a diverse and beautiful green space in New Orlean's City Park. It's the most accessible way to experience native plants and trees without leaving the city. You can also visit Laborde Mountain which is the tallest point in New Orleans at just 43 feet above sea level. Coming from the rocky and often hilly Midwest hiking spots I'm used to, it was really nice to be able to wander and really take everything in.
