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.

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.

We really enjoyed the hike. Path was clearly marked.

very nice! little waterfall at the start was super cute.

Enjoyed the hike. The hike wasn't very difficult. The waterfall and swinging bridge were great. Also, the trail was well marked!

Nice hike

Amazing waterfalls well marked trails awesome rock formations. Much more than I expected. Really an awesome place. Be sure to do the bridge.

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.

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.

Since I have not done a lot of hiking out here, I was not expecting a trail like this in Mississippi. Very nicely kept trail with beautiful rock formations that you can even climb on. There are also great water views of the river at times. the trail loops around so you don't have to go the same way back.
