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.

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.

This is a hidden little gem, nice trail in good shape and about as close to a mountain as you’ll get in Mississippi.

This was not what I was expecting. It was basically just a walk around an open field. The picture made it look shaded but there was nearly no shade. There are some historic signs that tell about the mounds,, but I did not see any mounds nor signs as to exactly where they once were. Also, it was not obvious where the trail started from the parking lot. The trail was not maintained at all, but at least it had been mowed on both sides of the trail. Not a good option for a hot July day....

Nice paved trail, good trail to get your exercise on, shaded in parts and nice scenery.

Nice scenic trail, river was up when we went and was nice. Old water mill was very interesting. Definitely worth the hike, easy and pretty.

Great trail pretty well maintained

Great trail! Enjoyed the much needed shade on a hot summer day!

Started out good, but you can tell the area has been flooded. Once we got into the deep woods, we lost the trail and had to hike out to the road. Other than that it was beautiful...saw frogs, butterflies deer, and the native bird of MS....mosquitoes! Take some repellant.

where do I start! saw the park ranger or whatever that grumpy looking sob is! I said hey how are you and I get back a barely audible grumble of something like good. then I find out i have a ticket on my windshield saying i needed to put money in an envelope then in the honor box! if I do that, where is the honor? its a box with a receipt you yourself do the work for! also this is a natural area not a state park so why did I have to pay for a visit in nature? trails were not marked as I could see and no one looked happy! I started off like all the trails in Tennessee with anyone you pass, you or they will say hey or hi or something, 90 something percent of everyone we passed never said a word. doesn't look like a good time to me and it almost wasn't. I left irritated and not happy to actually almost see something neat in Mississippi but alas it was not good! I even saw some parked almost 2/10 of a mile out! nope not ever will I return here, go see rodney or Windsor ruins free and nice, plus they are marked lol! oh and do something with that extra 5 I had to throw in like buy a board for the one missing on the steps

just a rough grave path, no sights to see.

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.

a typical trip around a lake nothing worth writing home about

Loved the history on this mostly shaded trail. Enjoyed this, even with the heat and humidity.

Great trail to run and work out in MS!

We loved this trail. We rode 31 miles from New Albany almost to Pontotoc and back. The trail is set up nice every little town had a rest area with rest rooms and water fountains and rest areas in between. The people we met who lives close by seem to take pride in their trail I can’t wait to go back.

This trail is wonderful. A raised platform over a swanp most of the way. I saw cypress trees, dragonflies, lily pads, a hummingbird, and a rabbit. I heard tree frogs, bull frogs, and birds. So nice I walked it twice.

Someone in the reviews said this trail was not close to Sardis, but 3 1/2 hours from Sardis. I think they went to the wrong place.

Trail is not maintained at all.

Nice get away from the landscape of the southeastern region of the US. Nice in the fall or rainy spring.

Well I have seen people on this trail but I loooooooks sooooooo coool

Walked the trail! A few different variations you can take on it. Very pretty walk, though a lot of it is on the road. Fun time!

Easy trail, was mostly clear and well-maintained. We just did the loop around the lake due to time constraints. Typical concerns for Southern summer hiking: ticks, chiggers, poison ivy, & snakes. Just bring the OFF and beware your steps.
