Very well maintained trail system, with a clear map posted at the trailhead. The Lakeside Trail uses fine gravel, is well kept, and the most immediate trail in the park. I hiked that and the connecting Chatta trail. Great conditions even with heavy rains the day before

While often muddy and not well marked, this is nevertheless the best trail in the Oxford area. High marks for the scenery and feeling of remoteness. It's almost always muddy, but this is mostly concentrated to the first half mile starting at the bottom of the parking lot. It is overgrown mainly in the warmer months (particularly the dam), and is best hiked after the first frost of the fall. There are many woods roads, making navigation difficult, but follow my recording for the best route.

Good trail for hiking, dogs, and mountain biking. Lots of shade. Muddy in areas depending on how much rain. Lots of different trails to take depending on how far you want to go. We went 4 miles today and still haven’t explored all the trails. Not always clear which trail leads back so it is helpful to keep your phone on you.

Easy little hike through some Mississippi hardwood. Took this trail with my trusty four legged friend and had a nice stroll. A little muddy in parts but overall beautiful. Not much of a hike but definitely a change in pace from college life.

Needed a quick hike while road tripping and this was a perfect place to do it. We met friendly folks at the trailhead and everything about Zion Mtn Bike Trails was in excellent condition. There are comical/funky touches throughout the course. Well worth the stop. Left a donation. Many thanks to the trail maintainers!

Diverse terrain and trails and things resembling trails. A spiderweb of marked and worn paths crisscrosses the woods behind the mall, connecting with the trails around the reservoirs. Found them by google maps, which is a little whimsical in its data tracks.

Watch for the extra loops not on the current map; otherwise, spot on as easy, well traveled path.

It's a hand down wonderful 5 out of 5 picnic area and campground, but the trail is barely a trail at all. It's about 80% side of the road walking with a little bit of overgrowth pushing you onto the (relatively slow and safe!) road at times. If they would throw up a pedestrian guardrail or something between the path (not worthy of the title trail) and the road I'd kick it up to 5 stars. There are two forestry parts of the trail, the CCC Spur and a half mile nature loop, as of 10/20/2019 the nature loop is signed as closed though there is another unclosed entrance that still allows you to check out some of the wildlife and plants. The visitor center is also pretty cool.

This trail is a beautiful walk through the woods, but there are parts that split off onto other trails without any signage. Without the app, we wouldn’t have been able to stay on trail. Lots of banana spiders along the way. Ended up turning around about 2 miles in as it was pretty overgrown and we had already pulled some ticks off our dog. Ended up pulling two ticks off myself later on the walk back. Some spots pretty muddy as well. Would love to go try again after some trail maintenance!

Permanently closed. This trail is now an area for MSU nature research. Use of this area may compromise ongoing research.

Nice hike. 1.5 out 3 total back to car. Great nature break....Spotted two young white-tail and a large black snake.

So let me start by saying I really enjoyed my 2 hours on Richardson Creek Trail. I used to mountain bike these trails when I was a kid and they were in peak condition. It’s sad to see them in the condition they are. With that said the trail is still very rideable. There are still some fast sections that flow well there are still some tough climbs. I ride it on 10-5-2019. The temps were good. I ride slowly because there is a lot of over grown brush and quite a bit blow down. Honestly with a bit more use and a chain saw weekend the trail good be in good shape.

The Possum Walk Trail is closed during November through February because of hunting season just a fyi.

Well maintained, forested trail. Has several linked trails so you can customize the length of your hike.

This trail is not closed. The Tally’s trail is closed (yellow markings). We did cut the trail and walked the creek bed for a 1/2 mile.

Deer Flies and Wood Ticks are thicker than Wendy’s Frosties. I ramped it up from Picaridin to 20% DEET to 100% DEET and still pick ticks off me after hiking five or six miles. With the heat and humidity already as a detractor, having ticks use DEET as an appetizer is a game changer for me. Seriously, I’m not hitting any trails in south Mississippi again until later in the fall. I’ve logged almost 3,000 miles with my backpack on various trails across the country since Feb 2017 and the insects here are sucking the fun out of it. I’m not from here, but have been coming here since 1986 and lived here for two years before, so I’m well aware of the weather and insects. But they’ve always responded to repellent before. Not now. I lived in the Canal Zone in Panama and used to live in the jungle and nothing there would resist DEET. The DeSoto National Forest is tick central right now. Make sure you do a full body check after being on the trails. It’s brutal.

A group of Mississippi hikers and I did this trail, Fairley Bridge to Janice Lansing. l’m quite the optimist but this trail was a challenge. It IS overgrown, grass and scrub brush up to your knees. I didn’t really find it too problematic, it just slowed us down. There was one spot on the trail near the Red Hills that was overgrown with brush/trees enough it obscured the trail. We pushed through and it opened back up to tolerable. About 5 miles into the twilight the first night, we stopped just short of the first accessible sandbar. Camped close to the trail near a bridge. Day two we did about 9 miles through the wilderness. The wilderness is far less overgrown with long stretches of pine needle trail cover. Saw a family of otter. Crossed the tree bridge (no rope, had to balance that one). Camped on a sandbar after a welcomed soak in the river. Last day shorter hike out 4-5 miles. There was very little water between sand bar camp (flagged “good camp site” on map) and exiting the wilderness. Probably one accessible water source, but it’s sketchy at best even with a Sawyer. The most grueling part is the road walk back to Janice, but there’s a flushing toilet and potable water that makes up for it a bit. Saw four snakes, all on our last day. One black snake and three copperheads. All in all, I’d do this again after the trail has been recleaned (I’d do the Wilderness section tomorrow if I had the energy). Note to hikers, do not attempt this hike without a Sawyer and electrolyte source. You’ll be glad you did.
