Very easy trail to hike along the river and close to the battlefield.

Beautiful trail. Slightly overgrown right now, but easily navigable. Bring bug spray for ticks. Also, honor box payment amount is now $4 (this site has it listed, incorrectly, at $3). Bring lots of water and snacks. Lots of hills and elevation changes.

Planning to hike it tomorrow. Wondering if anyone knows where i can find a good map without paying $30 for pro version. Has anyone been up there since the rain and flooding earlier this week? Anyone hiked Tunica Hills or Cat Island in LA? Is either worth the trip?

This is just a gravel road with a tree line on one side, and fields on the other. Nothing to see. Nothing to do. It would be a good path to run a dog or whatever, but not much fun to bike on.

The bridges need a little work. They are beginning to be over taken by weeds taller than me. If you are cycling, the bridges are about as wide as my handle bars, with a couple inches on either side.

Maybe after its paved it'll be a little bit nicer, but as of now I'd say it's basically a nice field/utility access road.

Hiked the entire trail (I think). The map and trail were confusing but we hiked until we ended up back where we started. Enjoyed the day and plan to go back.

Literally my favorite place to hike. I've never had any problem with bugs and I've been countless times. Never go the same way twice! There so much to see when you explore. Ditch the dirt trails and hike in the water. I can't wait to go back!

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.
