The Saddleback Ridge/Flat Rock Trail is a combination of the Flat Rock and Saddleback Ridge Trails that begins at the Park Visitor's Entrance area, following along rocky outcrops, crossing several springs and streams. The trail passes by the camping area and provides a perfect opportunity to view areas of ferns, wildflowers, outcroppings and wildlife. . The main trail continues along the lake and levee and to the picnic area and on to the Saddle Back Ridge Trailhead. 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.Show more
