General Information

Description - Louisiana currently has one National Scenic Byway, the Creole Nature Trail, and sixteen state and National Forest designated byways.

Offering an up-close and personal view of Louisiana's unique environment, the Creole Nature Trail travels through hundreds of thousands of acres of untouched wetlands blessed with some of the most beautiful scenery imaginable. The Longleaf Trail Scenic Byway offers such unusual attractions as views of mesas, buttes and sandstone outcroppings. The Bayou Teche Scenic Byway follows the most famous bayou in Louisiana, running through a land that is rich in Cajun and Creole culture, covered with elegant moss-draped oaks, and dotted with Southern mansions. These are just a few examples of the attractions of Louisiana's scenic byways.

Recreation - Byways provide access to numerous cultural, historical, natural, recreational and scenic sites. Some of the most popular activities along the byways include hiking, camping, picnicking, biking, fishing, photographing scenery, viewing historic sites and of course scenic driving.

Climate - Southern Louisiana experiences a subtropical climate that's warm throughout the year. Winter months bring low temperatures near 40 degrees F and highs above 55 degrees F. During the summer expect high temperatures to reach 95 degrees F frequently, with mid-afternoon showers. Humidity is highest in August and September.
