Not bad but needs lots of work. Several areas do not have bridges, so you will get wet and dirty. You will cross a major highway and the trail markings are terrible.

trailhead actually a ways down from maps landing. that part of the trail is torn up by four wheelers. The trail head is littered with trash. so flies are very aggravating.

Launched at the first launch and paddled down to Moody's to let some people off. Paddled a little over half way to Janice landing, and spent the night on a sandbar, camped overnight there, woke up the next morning and headed out. Over all a great experience and would be good for family and friends. Wasn't too technical and definitely makes for a great day trip or overnight trip.

Nice little 2 day trip. Launched the canoes at Moody's Landing and finished at Cypress Creek Landing about 16 miles down. Camped about a mile north of Janice Landing on a great sandbar after seeing a deer cross the creek and climb the ledge up the opposite side. Water level was at roughly 5.5 feet, which kept us from having to do any walking or lifting the canoes over logs.

This relatively easy kayak and canoe trail winds its way through DeSoto National Forest. Don't expect rapids or too many other impediments, the paddling is very easy. White sand beaches throughout the river make it an ideal spot to camp along the way.

If you follow the directions from the app it will take you to the exit of the trail just keep driving down and it will take you to a parking lot and the trail head. I hiked it from the end as i didn't know this at first, like the previous post about a half mile in the trail is gone and washed into the creek. However just that short hike was really nice, hopefully it gets fixed soon.

This trail has been rendered completely impassable by the latest floods and weather. Approximately 1/2 mile in where the trail appears to have once followed the river it has been completely washed out. more than one man a dog and a knife can handle. Too bad. The trail liked promising.

Hiked a lot of trails in this area and this one was the best by far. Walked along black creek for most of it with lots of good scenery away from the creek as well.

Great views of Black Creek. Descent elevation variance for this area. Can't wait to do it again. May camp next time.

Trails are there. Avoid late afternoons in the summer. Bring skeeter spray.
