Louisiana Scenic Highways and Byways

Scenic Highways and Byways in Louisiana 

Two of the major trails in Louisiana are the Creole Nature Trail and Great River Road.

Known as Louisiana's Outback, the Creole Nature Trail meanders through marshes, prairies, and along the Gulf of Mexico. As you loop through Calcasieu and Cameron parishes in Southwest Louisiana, view alligators and birds up close and in the wild, along with colourful wildflowers and rare cheniers shaped by salty winds.

Throughout history, the Mississippi River influenced many lives: the Dakota, Chippewa and Hopewell cultures; early French voyagers; African-Americans seeking freedom on the Underground Railroad; and many more. Through its charming river towns and metropolitan cities, historic sites and cultural artifacts, today's Great River Road still links resources, people and history.

Other Louisiana byways include the Bayou Teche, Jean Lefitte and Northwest Louisiana Scenic Byways.
