Located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Tishomingo State Park is steeped in history and scenic beauty. Archaeological excavations confirm the presence of Paleo Indians in the area now encompassed by the park as early as 7000 B.C.; the park takes its name from the leader of the Chickasaw nation, Chief Tishomingo. The famous Natchez Trace Parkway, the premier highway of the early 1800s and a modern scenic parkway, runs directly through the park. Today's visitors to Tishomingo State Park discover the same timeless natural beauty that enchanted the Indians centuries ago. Tishomingo offers a unique landscape of massive rock formations and fern-filled crevices found nowhere else in Mississippi. Massive boulders blanketed in moss dot the hillsides, and colorful wildflowers border trails once walked by Native Americans.

Very beautiful trail with some nice rock formations and next to the water.

Nice trail through the wilderness of the park.

Very nice trail with some awesome rock formations and a nice waterfall you can cool off under.

Very simple trail and family friendly. Have your camera because you will have some great pictures.

Trails are not very clearly marked, didn't mean to do this trail in fact, but it turned out to be a great trail. Very clean, also super cool to be able to get to the natural spring. Even got to fill up a bottle.

Great trail want to do it again in fall

Beautiful trail. Well worth the effort. Some markings can be confusing and the trail is mixed in difficulty. The half by the river is easy, while the parts by the outcroppings are much more rigorous with elevation changes and tree roots. Overall lovely hike though.

The park is lovely and well maintained. I enjoyed the shade of the trail on a very hot day. My dog joined me and I was very glad to see how agile he actually is b/c the trail had some rocky areas that some smaller dogs might struggle with. I chose to go right after crossing over the bridge which was a mistake as somehow I got turned around and ended up missing a portion of the trail. Something to do with a “trail run’’? access. Have learned my lesson to always follow the straight path!! Path was diverse with challenges along the way to keep me energized- would love to go back and tackle it again.

nice trail!

Good hike with the kids. Saw some cool animals around the lake and the cabin. Well was a non event.

Clean, easily accessed, moderate challenges along route.

Great trail. Wonderful scenery.

Trail markings were a little confusing.

One of the best and most beautiful hiking/walking trails. This was an easy walk and you feel submerged in nature yet you are not from what you started. A few hikers were on the trail but it was not crowded.

easy-to-follow well-marked Trail. A few spots were tough on my knees, but overall not too bad. Waterfall was not very big today.

Beautiful trail. Swinging Bridge, contains a waterfall marked on map, but also a water fountain coming out of stones that are piled on top of each other. This is along the trail closest to the river. You can refill water bottles, etc here/get a drink.

Nice trail that arches through a disc golf course next to the lake at the park. very short but has nice views through the Forrest with giant rocks that have fallen down the arched slopes of the trail. short and sweet, a great way to start your hike and then try bear creek 2 miles down the road.
