Boy Scout hike to Aiery lake!

Full of huge spiders, butterflies, lizards and even armadillos. Gorgeous trail! Bring plenty of water.

Beautiful and well-maintained. Will definitely return, but with a couple of garbage bags! Clearly floods on occasion and there’s a variety of lake trash washed up in places. What a beautiful resource in hernando!

Trail is difficult to find without being given direction. Additionally, there aren’t many markers along the trail so it is very easy to get “lost” or off-trail in the woods. However, I enjoy an adventure so it was fun. Also, I enjoyed the scenery very much and would do it again. Come prepared with bug spray tho!

Pleasantly surprised at how nice this trail is. They have recently built a new pavilion and it looks like there are plans to keep improving it. Lots of wildflowers, which made for butterflies everywhere. A really enjoyable hike!

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.

Easy trail but nice view of the cypress swamp, would recommend if your close by.

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

Water sources for filtering were scarce, and ~85% of the trail was without shade. Use caution when hiking during the summer months.

Otherwise, the path itself is fairly 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.

just a rough grave path, no sights to see.

The only “trail” is in between camp sites and they are not we maintained. Various signs ask you not to enter areas of the park unless you are camping there. It is a beautiful area, but the “trail” is not worth the $4 it cost to enter the park.

a typical trip around a lake nothing worth writing home about

Had to lower the rating after coming over and seeing some ticks on my leg

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.

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!

Went in early June before 8am and it was so humid and had so many biting deer flies that it was intolerable. Even worse, we didn’t see any wildlife except a few dragonflies and 2 butterflies. We did hear a white eyed virio but never saw it.

This is a great hike! It is paved and is mostly tree cover. Almost no elevation and there were only a few people. I walked to the reservoir which is very pretty. People were friendly!

The trail is clearly marked and is fairly clear. There are interpretive markers along the way. There is a bathroom that is pretty clean.
