Welcome to your personal tour of Louisiana’s Creole Nature Trail All-American Road! From your vehicle, the wild and ruggedly beautiful wetlands of the Creole Nature Trail appear peaceful and tranquil, but don’t be fooled. Known as Louisiana’s Outback, this fertile world where land and water merge is teeming with life and activity. In fact, the area supports 28 species of mammals, more than 300 species of birds and 132 species of fish, not to mention the largest American Alligator population in the United States.
From Lake Charles to the Gulf of Mexico, the Creole Nature Trail traverses more than 180 miles (including four wildlife refuges) in Southwest Louisiana. Outdoor adventures are the top draw, naturally. Oak cheniers and world-class bird and alligator populations are a natural wonder. Top-notch fishing, hunting, crabbing, boating, nature photography and other outdoor opportunities distinguish the Creole Nature Trail as a recreational paradise for all ages.
Through both audio and video content, the Creole Nature Trail is designed to bring to life this vast wilderness area. The hardy and extremely resilient people who choose to live in these wetlands. The wildlife, both land and aquatic, who thrive in this unique ecosystem, ultimately providing valuable food for the entire United States. The vast mineral resources and the underground pipeline systems which bring energy to the nation. And the almost yearly impact of hurricanes on a disappearing coastline.
For your ease and safety, the Creole Nature Trail Tour Experience is automatically activated based on your GPS coordinates regardless of whether you are driving or strolling out into the marshlands at several handicap accessible boardwalks.
Come on, experience Louisiana’s Outback via your own personal guide. Or, as we in south Louisiana like to say, Laissez les bon temps rouler! (Let the good times roll!)
Ratings and Reviews
I used this App while we explored the Gulf Coast and it was amazing and very helpful! Some of the videos wouldn't play, however the text is written out so I had no trouble getting the information.
It took about 20 minutes to download all the tracks on 3G, but once they were downloaded you were good to go.
I'm very happy we found this!
Nice day trip
I live in New Iberia. And During the covid quarantine the only thing to do was get out and drive. This drive made a nice day trip. Since all the points of interest were in the area , no need to speak to anyone in person and you still got the information you wanted. Also since the drive was along the coast we were able to stop without too many people near and enjoy our day and fresh air and sunshine. The app made this possible.
Great app for southwest Louisiana!
Being from down here this app has shown me some places I've never known existed! Excellent tour and helpful info!
