Been here several times and it never disappoints. Highly recommend!

We love this trail and do it all the time. If it’s been raining then it’ll definitely be muddy so I’d definitely recommend hiking boots.

We do the ARK trail all the time but we usually do the 4 mile one and we absolutely love it. The first half is pretty flat and then it gets to be more up and down hills but it’s lots of fun. You’ll definitely want hiking boots when it’s been raining because it is definitely muddy.

Fun trail, but felt more like 2 miles. The first half had cool cliff/rock views and small waterfalls. The second half followed the river - due to the recent rain there were several fun jumps over the creeks adjoining the river

Is there a place here to camp? We can stay in the horse trailer but need a place to put horses and camp for the night.

Beautiful Mississippi!

Actively cleaning the trail from past flooding with students from my school: NWCC!

Also building a new, higher trail (Highland trail) which is predicted to be flood free and garbage free! In December of 2018, it has been constructed and is marked with green and orange fluorescent markers.

I see signs of deer here, but not actual deer!

Please check out my Ark Trails playlists on Darrell Barnes' YouTube channel for actual footage of this trail.

Love Ark trails. I have had the good fortune of hosting guided nature hikes here!

Let's go hiking!

Nice walking trail. Well maintained and well marked. Pretty scenery.

Did this one late December, and it’s my new favorite for Tishomingo SP. Most of the reviews below are actually reviewing the wrong trail. Note the recording follow the Outcroppings trail, that is the most popular one in the park, but this is my new favorite. I started from the Pioneers cabin and hiked clockwise. I feel like that is the best approach cause it puts you really getting into the good stuff the last half. Great trail and much more isolated than Outcroppings (which is good too).

Nice place about 2hrs away from NOLA. Took the family here for my birthday. Kids loved it, but said they’d rather go hike back in Colorado. Lol We arrived around 8:30am and we left about 3.5-4hrs later it was packed.

i branched out recently this year to hike locally near my hometown in South MS because i no longer had as much opportunity to visited the smoky mountains, and CRAVED a good hike. Clark Creek fulfilled every bit of that craving and then some ! i had so grateful that this place exists. it is absolutely gorgeous and seems to grow each time i go. i always discover something new and i can never get tired of it. such a wonderful place !!

Love walking part of this trail everyday with my dog! It’s always well maintained and is stays pretty busy with bikers and runners. Definitely a fun thing to do in Hattiesburg if you want to spend some time outside!

Love coming here. We came back and brought the grand baby and she loved it too! Very nice and clean place

This trail was nice and very pretty. It was really muddy in a lot of spots with a few hills. There are some trees down but it isn't too hard to get around them. about 3.5 miles in it isn't as well maintained. There are a horses on the trail so keep that in mind.

Love this place.

All in all a nice trail. (I backpacked from Janice landing to fairley bridge landing.) Although it could use a little maintenance (a lot of trees blown down in the recent storms we have had and very grown over in places) and a few well placed bridges over the more treacherous water crossings would help. *mile markers would be awesome*

We got there around 0830 in the AM, beautiful clear day, lots of deer active in the woods. The first half is harder than the back half, but it was easily hiked in shoes. If its recently been raining, I'd wear boots, there were parts that would be muddy if it was wet.

very good trail.

Great trail, well maintained with great scenery!

Came on October 27th and didn’t know trail would be closed until we got here and ‘trail closed’ sign was at trailhead :(

The road to get to this trail is closed on Sundays

I’m so happy this place exists. After moving to very flat Louisiana from Maryland I miss being in a forest with hilly terrain. These trails fulfill all my hiking desires. Lots of variations: steep hills, flat trails, shade, sun, walks along the creek beds, even several areas with steps for those who want the solidarity of a staircase to climb rather than the hoof it on the land next to it. And of course, waterfalls abound. We saw at least four of them, and I think there are more. I saw lots of dogs on this trail as well, especially along the creek beds, and they looked like the happiest dogs on the planet. Worth the drive, I only wish it were closer to New Orleans!

Did about 6 miles round-trip but never saw lake. Must be close to the end of the trail. Very easy.

nice place but the trefoil was pretty bad

Used to be good when it was maintained and well kept. Too tall of grass and bridges are out in various places.

Good flat hike. Lots of scenery. The back 6 needs to be cleaned and fixed up though.
