The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) has closed the south entrance to vehicle traffic at the J.C. “Sonny” Gilbert Wildlife Management Area (WMA) due to severe erosion. Once repairs are made, the road will be re-opened.
The north end of WMA will remain open, which includes access to St. Mary’s Falls & Big Creek hiking trails. Access to Rock Falls hiking trail will remain closed until repairs are made and the road re-opened.
J.C. “Sonny” Gilbert WMA is located approximately six miles west of Sicily Island off of Louisiana Highway 8 or Louisiana Highway 915. For more information, go to https://www.wlf.louisiana.gov/
