Hiking

Whether you’re out for a day hike or an extended backpacking excursion into the wilderness, the six National Forests in Mississippi provide excellent opportunities for exploring the wilderness on foot. Mississippi has 1.2 million acres of forest, providing a diversity of terrain, and numerous lakes, rivers and streams. Some trails are easy and can accommodate families with small children. Other paths make great half-day hikes, while some trails can lead to a backpacking adventure for a night or longer. Discover the hidden beauty of the piney woods by hiking one of Mississippi’s longest and most challenging trails, The Black Creek Trail. It continues for 40 miles along the Black Creek River. Approximately 10 miles of the trail is located in the Black Creek Wilderness. In addition to our national forests, Mississippi’s state parks also offer many trails that are open for exploration and adventure.
