Great trail with some steep inclines and stair ways. Some of the stair steps need replacing so be careful. The trail winds around the overflow spillway at Grenada lake. The surrounding steep hills are populated with some real impressive white oak trees.

Hiked from Old Hwy 49 to Anderson Loop-Government rd. 319. It is a beautiful pine forest hike with few water shed ravines. I found it to be an easy hike. It had been cleared recently.

I loved it. So many different things to see and things to do there

had a great time with 5 kids. start to finish was 5.6 miles trail is open all the way around the lake

The Clark Creek Primitive Trails were a good workout. Once I got on the primitive trail system I really enjoyed the hike. We hiked the entire loop (5 hours) and thoroughly enjoyed it. The system is quite a hike for those expecting a flat grade, it's not! It's more like a roller coaster with some challenging areas. I think the system could use a little clarification in trail directions at some points along the south side but having to rely on instinct was sort of fun. After all you're not in a forest 100s of miles out you're just a few miles from anything, not saying you can't get lost. We really enjoyed the hike, I think I'll use it for training for section hikes along the AT.
My biggest complaint, the primitive trails are not marked from the improved trails. Maybe a little more thought could go into promoting the entrances/exits.

The Clark Creek Improved Trails are ok. It's a nice walk if you want to take your young kids out into a wooded setting. Some areas will require you to really watch out for very young children since there are no rails or fences to keep them from dangerous area such as steep drops. The "improved" trails are graveled, I don't like it when walking up a steep grade but I guess overall it's ok.
I would suggest that with some of the revenue the state receives from the fee they could better label the trail system altogether. For the most part you are following the crowd without knowledge of where you are walking to.
Restrooms are well kept and it's a highly traveled area so the safety factor is up there for folks not use to being outdoors.

Very nice and pretty place. We have missed waterfall and some part. But we will be back soon to have more of it.

It is a beautiful place to see, a wonderful first time hike with the kids.

Nice day for a ride. This trail was busy but other than that it was a nice ride.

We made it an all day adventure on mountain bikes. Really enjoyed the little (bike) rest areas.

Nice maintained Trail with a mix of Pine and Cypress forest unfortunately for some reason they close it from Nov. through Feb.

Great hike, good to go on a week day if possible. Bring pretty of water and chaco's are a good idea

Great Hike! This is one of the top trails in Mississippi. The trail is heavily used and can be challenging on some of the more primitive areas due to the erosive nature of the soils and tree root exposure from heavy foot traffic. The natural area is home to some very large hardwood tree species and three state record trees can be found here if you want to wander off the trail a bit.
