Alligators, over 400 bird species, marshlands teeming with life, 26 miles of natural Gulf of Mexico beaches, fishing, crabbing, Cajun culture, and more can be experienced as you travel the more than 180-mile Creole Nature Trail All-American Road. One of only 57 so designated scenic byways in the USA, and affectionately known as Louisiana’s Outback, the Creole Nature Trail is a journey into one of America’s “Last Great Wildernesses.” Download the brochure and/or the free tour app to fully enjoy this unique terrain and the creatures which call it home. Be sure to pack in what you need and pack out anything you brought with you to preserve the flora, fauna and amazing viewing for future generations.
An excellent way to begin your adventure is Creole Nature Trail Adventure Point. Fun (and free), this is a wonderful way to familiarize yourself with this scenic byway, and Southwest Louisiana, through hands-on displays before hitting the trail.
