Creole Nature Trail
Length: 180.0 mi / 289.7 km
Time to Allow: Depending on route, allow four or five hours to drive or two days to visit the byway.
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 colorful wildflowers and rare cheniers shaped by salty winds.
Seeking refuge from the blustering northern winds, thousands of birds swoop down in magnificent flock formations that stretch as far as the eye can see.
Bring your bird books and your binoculars to see birds and butterflies at the Peveto Woods Bird & Butterfly Sanctuary, located on the Creole Nature Trail west of Holly Beach.
