Trail Route

Find LA Hwy 3049

From downtown Shreveport, drive north on Clyde Fant Memorial Parkway. Just north of the casinos, Clyde Fant veers to the left and changes name to Grimmett Drive. From Grimmett Drive turn right onto LA Hwy 3049 (Dixie Shreveport Road).

Enjoy the Trail

Turn right at Old Dixie Gin and Sentell Road and drive the loop around the levee. Sentell Road circles back to Highway 3049 at Cornerstone Baptist Church, just north of Dixie. This drive features several sunflower varieties, and a field of wildflowers. Sunflowers along the Trail are expected to be in full bloom.
