Nice easy hike. Wanted to do more of the trail but it wasn't clear where "more of the trail" was. I guess that could be our fault for not researching before going. No biggie, still lots of fun.

this trail has been "under construction" for years. it looks like it is just there for utility access. it's not a real trail imo

Great hike with lots of difficult hills. However , the trail is not marked very well at all. They have also recently run a bulldozer through a section of the primitive side, I guess that will eventually make a new and improved path. It was a complete muddy mess! I ventured back and forth between the primitive and improved. I was there for the excercise so I didnt mind......(being lost most of the time).

Easy hike. Gorgeous rock formations. Fresh springs and a waterfall to cool yourself off in this Mississippi heat. You can't ask for any better.

We did the Mill Creek Trail. There was a sign that said all trails were closed until further notice but it was in a really strange place so we weren't sure about that.

The trail (at least Mill Creek) is little more than a game trail at this point, but it's not hard to follow. I would wait until the fall when some of the brush starts dying and it's cool enough for pants. It's really overgrown; the briars were relentless.

Bugs weren't an issue with some spray. We also ended up within 20 feet of a deer.

There are some small streams. I filled a bottle from one and it was fine, but drink at your own risk.

the trail was a little confusing. We followed it to a waterfall but from there it was lost. we found our way back, but back to the begininng. we had a few ticks, so make sure you bug spray up - I had less than my fiance who didn't bug spray as much as I did. it was a good little trip, will eventually do it again once I get better at hiking.

First hike for me and the wife. Awesome time and place to do our first. Very tuff for us newbies but was worth it. Did about 90% of the primitive trail. We didn't get to the last 2 waterfalls. We were just too tired. There were a lot of other hikers that day so we did not see any wildlife at all. We will be back with the boys for another go.

Overall a good trail. But a few things...

The Clear Springs Trail is more of a trail system, currently only consisting of 3 trails (the 4th is currently closed). This was confusing for me initially.

The trails are well marked. I think some of the comments on here regarding them not being well marked may be due to the confusion of the multiple trails. The trails are for the most part well maintained and clear. However, I will say that certain sections were overgrown. All bridges intact. Plenty of water sources. I wore plenty of mosquito spray and still got destroyed by bugs, mostly chiggers. Fair amount of wildlife- box turtle, 2 water moccasins, and multiple cool insects, including a millipede. Only saw 2 mountain bikers on the trail in the 2 days I was there. There is a usage fee that you pay using the honor system. I don't know why this trail is listed as "hard"...I'm not super experienced...did the 3 open trails and found it very easy. Not very steep hills at all (not expecting much from MS).

I probably wouldn't go back unless in the winter.

Has the potential to be a nice little hike, needs more work but I see equipment out there so I believe it's in progress.
Maybe a raised deck walkway toward the water where the lake debris litters the trail? Good scout project!!

This trail was a nice surprise in Southern Mississippi. It was never too difficult, but I recommend long pants and maybe boots as the grass is rather talk and the snakes plentiful! Also, it was a tough task finding the start of this trail. Overall, definitely worth it!
