Driving, Canoeing, and Fabulous Birding Opportunities!
Explore the Flyway Byway, a scenic trail through swamp, river, farmland and unique terrain. You can drive, canoe or kayak the waterways. See if you can spy any strange critters and beware of gators!
The 55 mile driving trail takes you on a scenic loop throughout our Parish. The Flyway Byway is now part of the Louisiana Trails and Byways Program. And Jeff Davis Parish is home to over 160 species of birds..a birders’ paradise! One stop is the beautiful Lorraine Bridge, off Niblett’s Road on Hwy 99, an old scenic bridge worth its own trip.
