Me and my family went hiking and we went in the wooded trail. Found the trail that led to the lookout point which is a 1.5 mile hike from the main trail. Lots of ups and downs on hills. Very beautiful and nice. There are easier trails but the one we went on was medium and good even for all levels. Really enjoyed this hike and will probably go back since it is close to home and interesting. Lots of ducks, birds, squirrels were seen around the lakes and in the woods. Picnic tables located throughout the area.

Clean, easily accessed, moderate challenges along route.

Good trail with some challenging parts if you take the outer loop!

Very muddy today. Pretty swamp scene

Great hike with some elevation changes.. the trail is out after mile 4 but you can see where people have just gone around... same thing after mile 5. Airey lake is more like a pond but it’s nice. There is a restroom there but not very clean.

Good starting trail, we walked in 3 miles and returned. We plan on going the whole trip soon. We're trying to work up to bigger hikes.

This is a great easy hike. I do recommend turning back around at the third mile if you don’t walk or run for extended periods of time on a regular basis. There are a few bridges out, but nothing you can’t get past. Most of the trails are flat and easy to walk. We took our beagle and he loved it!

Very muddy and needs some upkeep. But the swamp area is beautiful with a good bit of wildlife. The trail actually goes quite longer than shown - all the way around the lake now. About 4 miles and then you can make it a loop walking the two miles on the road through the state park.

Good beginner trail for day hiking or an easy 2 day backpack hike. The Campground at Airey Lake has potable water, toilet and trash bins. POW Lake has trash bins but no other facilities, but lots of space. Airey Lake can get crowded on fair weather weekends so stake out a spot early!

This trail is beautiful and well maintained. My husband and I completed it in about 2 hours with our 8 month old border collie. The trail is dog friendly, but the track is not...the difference in the two was a little confusing at first if you are not familiar with this area. Our only complaint was the lack of markers directing hikers to the next section of trail after a short walk on a paved road. Now that we know the route, we will definitely be back!

Great place to take your dogs and I have a great experience. So relaxing!

I've hiked/ran this and the connecting trails a few times now. The first leg is 5.3 miles, leading to Lake Airey. There is a restroom there and a pump for clean, drinkable water. If you continue on to the other trails by following the white markers, the mile markers will keep counting up until you reach mile 12, shortly after which you'll make the split to go to Pow Lake (~12.5 mi) or Bethel Road (~13 mi). The trail is poorly kept from mile marker 11 to where the trail splits. Over all it's an easy hike- very flat and only a few streams so cross without a bridge of sorts. Lots of good views, need to watch out for the horse poop though. I definitely recommend stopping at Pow Lake. It's gorgeous.

Great trail. Wonderful scenery.

Enjoyed the hike with the family out and back 12 miles.

Pretty cool spots to find once you get off the main trail

Beautiful fall hike. Trail is well maintained with lots of up and down hills. We saw some deer. We don't have very many up and down hill hikes in south Mississippi. This was a great afternoon hike.

Trail markings were a little confusing.

My sister and I visited the lake on a day trip and ate a late lunch there. I wish I had more time to explore on the trails. It's a very peaceful place. I hope to visit again in November.

Great place to hike. Very well maintained. Clear trail markers. Lots of hills. Bugs were not too bad but bring bug spray.
We walked the horse trails about half the time which were more challenging and allowed for a different view of the area.

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.

my husband and I did the Virginia Pine trail. overall ok but got a little lost once we got to the campground on where the trail picked back up. We look forward to doing the other one soon.

I absolutely loved this Trail. I did find the trail to be slightly tiring in places but the beauty of the trail is magnificent. I will be hiking this trail many more times.

Muddy and no upkeep but nice walk

Another great hike with family and friends. Our group ranged in ages from 2-60(something LOL) with fitness levels that covered the full spectrum. We made the hike in a comfortable 1 hour. One guy RAN it in 20 minutes flat and the repeated the trail with the group :-0

This can be a challenging trail for beginners especially in the Mississippi summer humidity. We are using this trail in preparation for a Spartan Sprint we will run as a team in September in Nashville TN.

Probably one of Mississippi's best hidden gems. This trail is extremely well maintained and you wander through beautiful forests and see a lot of great spots to hang out in the water. Trail is a bit rough for those just beginning so I would suggest being moderately fit if you plan to hike the entire length. Start early so you won't be hiking through the night like I did, unless you're like me and enjoy a good moonlight hike.

Well marked and maintained trails. Super easy. Walk through ancient cypress forests and view an abundance of wildlife like white tail deer, egrets, and blue heron. Trails are mapped out with different color codes. Orange, blue, green, yellow. All of which connect to each other in cool ways. There is also a section on the yellow trail that will lead you to the banks of the pearl river with great views of the Ross Barnett spillway

Good trail as long as it hasn't rained.

hilly . maintained trails.
