Most of the fitness stations are broken. But it was still a neat trail.

I really enjoy hiking here! If you’re looking for a workout, then stay on the pathways, but the easiest and much more fun way is to walk down the creek! There is so much to see and another way to keep cool!

Enjoy!

Took a group of about 15 scouts to The Tanglefoot in February. Great safe ride for a group of varying skill levels. There are a surprising number of hills. Some of them are fairly long. We rode from Algoma to Houston and took a side trip to the courthouse in Houston. Getting from the trail to the Courthouse was a little dicey, but worth the photo opp. Well maintained trail, but bring your own water in the off season.

This is a great trail to hike. We have hiked the primitive trail multiple times preparing for our Philmont Trek. The last few hikes we wore 40 lb packs. if you go in the late spring and summer be prepared for the occasional snake and ticks.

This is a short loop around the baseball diamond at Eudora Community Park. It's nice that it is paved, making for a quick walk, run, or easy bike ride. Dog friendly too, so I bring my dogs here quite often.

I have started walking this trail regularly to get ready for longer backpacking trips. It is well maintained (although a recent storm brought down some trees) lots of stairs and steep inclines. There are a couple of nice resting spots with great views.

This was a great trail. Pretty much perfectly laid out to give you relatively flat areas to rest in between strenuous ups and downs. Went in a counter-clockwise direction (we only saw one other couple on the primitive trail, and they were going clockwise). Getting down from the trail into the creek at the first waterfall was probably the most technically difficult part of the entire trail, so if you can accomplish that, you know you're good for the rest. Trail was marked pretty well for the most part - in some places it feels over-marked, but there were a few times I had to go 4-5 minutes without seeing anything and not being entirely certain just based upon terrain. Both of us wore Bean boots and feet stayed dry the entire time, and that included wading in the creek as much as we wanted. I'd bring at least 32 oz. of water per person - it was enough for me, but I can see it not being enough for someone else. Gnats were bad, bring repellent. We reapplied about 4 times during the hike as we felt them coming back. No ticks, might still be early. We're inexperienced hikers and had no issues other than the hill at the end back up to the trail head being brutal after a long day.

I personally love this trail. Accurately labeled "moderate" We had an inexperienced hiker among our group, and it was a challenge for her. We all had a great time, but you will get wet. prepare accordingly. The waterfalls are what make this trail a favorite of mine. If you are looking for a waterfall adventure, here it is. Lastly, I strongly reccomend bringing snacks, for the humans as well as the fur babies (if like myself, you hike with your dogs). Our group had 3 dogs with us, and luckily I brought dog food and protein bars, would have been a much harder trip if not for the snacks.

This is a 6-foot wide paved trail that circles the Eudora Community Park. A portion of the trail is shaded. One section is shared with the other loop trail in the park. To connect this as a loop you will need to cross the parking lot and pick up the trail on the other side, however the trails are lightly used and there should be no issues with doing so.

Love the nature trails here. Beautiful place

The trail is great, well marked with lots of rest areas-particularly in Pontotoc which had USB Charging stations and a nice picnic area. I did the lower section 1st and the Houston to New Houlka 10mi area was not maintained well, the path was covered in dead limbs and branches. The 2nd day I did the New Albany to Houlka and the reason I rate it 3 stars is the unchained, mean and aggressive dogs on this trail. I had 2 different packs chase me until I was eventually able to outrun them & another group who didn't leave their yard but barked so aggressively that I was concerned. After the 3rd encounter I turned around and cancelled the rest of my stay as I did not feel safe riding here. I found a trail ranger and told him about my experience and he told me has reported the dogs @ mile 18 but they don't do anything about it. The others were @ mile 15 and mile 6-7. If you stay in the upper portion of the trail you should be fine. I have ridden a lot of rail trails all over the country and have never encountered this situation. So beware!

Great Trail. This is the 2nd time I have done it. Last 2 miles before POW is best part as its a little more challenging.

Beautiful well kept trail it is easy but has a slight incline that can wear on you

Great Hike...very strenuous. Take extra water. I froze 3 16oz bottles the night before. Used them all. If you hike the primitive trail and/or the creek bed....bring extra shoe for the drive home. You shoes will be dirty and wet. Best to bring a good pair of hiking boots or trail shoes. Bring some sort of trail snack. You will be glad you did. Last, absolutely no cell service...no text either.

So the AllTrails directions sometimes leaves a bit to the imagination, I guess depending on your platform (iPhone, Samsung, etc). The directions I got for this trail took me to a gate & a barn. After asking some neighbors, we figured out what road I most likely needed to take & I arrived at “a trail head.” Not the one shown on the AllTrails site, but close enough. If you decide to make this trail from the spot I did, turn AT the SIGN that says “Brushy Creek Guest Ranch 1 Mile”. I didn’t go down the road to the Guest Ranch road, so don’t know if that is where AllTrails intended the directions to take me. I suspect since cell signal is hit/miss, it made my phone’s GPS off. By the way...there are few spots with good cell signal in this trail! It took me a minute to find the trail once I arrived because you have to cross the creek right away whether you go the south/west route like I did, or the south/east route. Suggest taking water shoes because water is about 2” too deep to wade wearing mid-high hiking boots & the gravel is a little rough on tender feet. Clear cold water, tho. Creek is beautiful! Trail is lightly traveled by hikers, but heavily traveled by equestrians. I saw 2 riders when I started, but NONE on the whole trail until almost back to starting point when I met about a dozen in 3 different groups heading out. Trail is pretty chewed up in spots from hooves (muddy, punched with hoof holes, etc). Take note the NPS’s idea of a “white diamond” is rather vague. Most cases it looks like they just scraped the tree bark into a diamond shape & called it good enough. There are only a few actual sign posts & one says it’s for the white diamond trail, but it actually isn’t. Don’t know what they meant there, but it’s confusing. Recommend following the trail map rather than the signs until you get around to the north swing of the loop. Didn’t try the Red Diamond trail (yet), but it’s shorter. Once you cross the 2nd creek crossing, the trail splits. One side is RED & follows the creek north-ish. I stayed on the WHITE, which took me thru a close/creepy section. If you’re lucky (& have a strong heart), maybe you’ll get to enjoy the sudden & totally unexpected chorus of a flock of hoot owls. Once you reach the primitive camp clearing next to another part of the creek, to continue, stay on the road for about a mile. The trail map says the trail goes into the woods, but it wasn’t clearly marked & there are so many new trails cut by the equestrians that it just wasn’t worth the effort to figure out. The NPS road is cool, tho. Once you get up to the top of the ridge, the trail turning left is clearly marked. At that point is where I started seeing equestrians from the Guest Ranch. You’re only about 1.5 to 2 miles back to start. Terrain is nicely varied & interesting. All in all, I enjoyed it very much & will be back to backpack/camp in the primitive area down by the creek. It’s a good trail to train/do a shakedown for longer backpacking trips.

great hike! expect to get wet. much harder of a hike than i anticipated. bring more water than you think you need!

This was a descent morning hike that took approximately 2 hours to complete. The trail (green route) wraps around the lake, but hiking the loop requires walking on the park roads. There was a small entrance fee to the park. Some of the footbridges were in bad shape, but it made stream crossings more fun.

A trail leads to the river below and is somewhat able to be seen. It was covered with trees and overgrowth. Most points on the trail parallel to the river were tough and had to hold on to a tree and jump across the blocked path. I enjoyed the moderate/hard level of this trail and how beautiful it was! Watch out for spiders! There is an easy trail that goes along to some camp
Houses and it’s a short 5 minute walk. Beautiful as well and paved with rock. Easy to hike

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.

such an awesome hike!

loved this hike!

Make sure to call ahead to see if there is flooding. Drove an hour and a half for nothing

Good hike with the kids. Saw some cool animals around the lake and the cabin. Well was a non event.

what an amazing day hiking! The waterfalls are beautiful, the views were fantastic, and the company was the best! Definitely will be back! Hard to believe this place is only 2 hours from New Orleans!

Fun and easy little gravel road . Super flat and parts of it hold water for a while . Still fun do get out and run or ride .

Very nice trail , well maintained with lots of rest stops and access to water, restrooms, and cold drinks. My only complaint is that we were chased by dogs on three occasions while riding from Prentiss to Hattiesburg.
