This is actually a point to point trail covering some 42 miles from Fairly Bridge Landing at the southern most trail head to Big Creek landing west of Brooklyn, MS. This trail runs roughly along Black Creek, which is a large creek, would considered a river in most areas. That being said, it covers a lot of low lying swampy areas, when it rains it gets wet. The creek and its many tributaries are very prone to flash flooding. It can be perfect one day and near impassable the next. I just completed the 16.5 mile trek from Fairly Bridge Landing to Janice Landing. It was a perfect hike. But getting your feet wet on a perfect hike on this trail is probable. If you are expecting to see breathtaking overlook views, not there. But if you are an outdoors person and a nature lover you will absolutely love this hike. No heavy traffic, but you are likely to see other hikers. Pay attention to the water level at Brooklyn. When I left, the water level was just over 5 ft and falling.
