Creole Nature Trail offers glimpse of state


Editor’s note: In the March 31 edition of the Guardian, readers were urged to visit points of interest throughout the state of Louisiana. A list of top spots has been complied and dubbed the Fort Polk Bucket List (You can find it on page 14 of the March 31 edition). If you visit one of these places and post photos or comments about it to social media, please use the hashtag #FortPolk- BucketList so your post can be found and shared with other readers. This article is the first in a series that highlights bucket list locations.


FORT POLK, La. — If you’re looking for a way to spend the day with family or friends, while at the same time experiencing a bit of the culture that is south Louisiana, a day trip along the Creole Nature Trail All-American Road Scenic Byway could be just the ticket.

The trail takes visitors south from Sulphur to the Louisiana Gulf Coast then back north to Lake Charles.

From Fort Polk, take US. Hwy 171 South to Ragley, then exit onto U.S. Hwy 90 East to Dequincy. Take La. Hwy 27 South in Dequincy. Once through Sulphur, you’re on the Creole Nature Trail.
