The Johnson Creek Greenway trail traverses a flat bottomland with little or no elevation gain and begins along Johnson Creek on U S Highway 61 and runs easterly along the creek towards the City of Horn Lake Mississippi. The 10 foot wide natural surface trail is Open Year Round. This easy natural surface trail is used for biking and hiking and is part of the DeSoto County Mississippi Greenways and Parks program. The trail begins at the intersection of Johnson Creek and Baldwin Rd which is located in DeSoto County Mississippi and follows utility easements to US Highway 61 and back. The remote area is home to a variety of wildlife including deer, fox, coyote, and numerous other small animals. The adjacent wetlands are home to migratory birds including occasional bald eagles.

it's a very easy hiking area, flat with some wooden bridges to cross water features or it is paved for the bikers who don't mind getting wet. At the start of the trail there is a very nice picnic area and fix your bike area, no bathroom facilities though, you will mostly see fields and and a few trees. I liked this trail for a nice walk after Thanksgiving dinner.

Good for walking dogs. Bring mosquito repellant because those suckers are big!

This is just a gravel road with a tree line on one side, and fields on the other. Nothing to see. Nothing to do. It would be a good path to run a dog or whatever, but not much fun to bike on.

The bridges need a little work. They are beginning to be over taken by weeds taller than me. If you are cycling, the bridges are about as wide as my handle bars, with a couple inches on either side.

Maybe after its paved it'll be a little bit nicer, but as of now I'd say it's basically a nice field/utility access road.

this trail has been "under construction" for years. it looks like it is just there for utility access. it's not a real trail imo

This is an easy trail out and back that follows utility easements along a creek. The trail and greenways is still under construction and lacking amenities but has possibilities.
