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.

One of my favorite places to run ! So many options to take . Run on trails jump on roads back on trails . Rest rooms are never that far away . Great trail !!!

My 3 kids (age 10 and under) and I did this hike the week of Thanksgiving 2017. We did a there & back starting at Janice Landing and hiking to US 49 before turning back. We stashed food and water on US 49 to keep our weight to a minimum and did this in a 3 day 2-night trip. We camped at 31.02766 -89.09828, which is on a nice high bluff about 50 yards off the trail. This made for a REALLY long second day of about 20 miles, but was necessary as we got a bit of a late start the first day.
The trail is decently marked although we did go off trail twice by mistake. There are a lot of hunting trails that intersect where its easy to suddenly find yourself on the wrong trail. I used an app on my phone that used my GPS location to tell me where I was, which was helpful when we went off trail. The biggest bummer on this trail is that it doesnt have mile markers. You can only use landmarks on a topo map to estimate where you are. A good topo map and a compass is a must. Make sure you know how to use them as we passed two ladies who had no map and thought they were on a different 0.5 trail, when they were actually a mile or two away from their car.
The trail follows the river for much of the it, which provides for decent scenery. I thought the most beautiful part of the hike was being on the top of the hills. The only wildlife we saw was a flock of turkeys and a couple of hunting dogs. There were very few people on the trail.

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!

I started at the Hwy 43 parking lot and walked south 3.5 miles. The first 2 miles (to pipeline) is well maintained. The trail past that point isn’t maintained as well but still easy to follow.

Not so much a trail as a destination point to visit. Clean and well maintained road to the highest point in Mississippi.

This is a mountain bike trail first, hiking trail second. Currently, the lake is drained for repairs. Obviously, the trail will have more to offer when the lake is restored. The park is secluded and quiet and there is ample opportunity for birding.

To much of the trail is on the road side. Not a fun trail at all.

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.

Great little day hike! Lots of explore with several little waterfalls. Terrain gets challenging and at points you have to search hard for the trail but definitely a gem for southern trails

Lowland trail through pine forest and some tall grassy open areas. Topography not all that exciting but it is a nice quiet path great for a relaxing afternoon hike.

Clark Creek Trail
Clark Creek WMA has two separate trails within the park. The first is a well trafficked and well maintained trail with stairs at steeper points on the hills. The second trail, the primitive tail is about a mile down the first trail and is called primitive for a reason. The second tail runs along the creek and has little to no marking other than small rectangular reflective yellow strips on a few of the trees along the trail. Waterfalls were quite deep but with very little water-flow as it was fed by a small creek. After heavy rains it can be seen that the water levels rise significantly. The hills are constant on the trail, either hiking up or down with constant gradient which makes for a moderate difficulty.
Witnessed dozens of grey squirrels and approximately ten chipmunks and was flagged by a startled white-tailed deer slightly off the primitive trail.

A fairly flat hike mostly along the side of a road. A couple of short dirt spur trails take you into the woods away from the road. A couple of bridges offer nice bayou views and therefore good wildlife viewing. It would be a nice hike if it wasn't for the close proximity of the road.

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!

Love the Trace. No 18 wheelers allowed. Lots of stops to see historical sites. Officially it takes about 5 days to drive the Trace if you stop and see everything along the way from Natchez, MS to Nashville,TN
