An extremely easy trail to hike. Very clearly marked and well kept. Wouldn't necessarily recommend if you are looking for an adventure, but not a bad trail for beginners.

Awesome 4+ mile easy trail. Alligators, armadillos, turtles, birds. Beware the biting flies.

Not bad. A little boring once past the board walk. Also, maybe not the best during the warm months. Sunscreen definitely needed as there isn't much shade.

Hiked this trail in mid April. Very well marked. You can see one blaze from the other. Trail is well maintained. Saw a couple of other people, but not many. Hiked 13 miles the first day and camped then finished it up. The first half of the trail is pretty easy. The middle has a few ups and downs. And the finish is not that bad.

SO MANY TICKS. So very, very many ticks. Otherwise, a great loooong trail. For the most part, it's well-kept, but one part that seems like it's usually boggy was totally washed out, and we ended up off the trail, then having to walk through serious mud to get back to it. There's also a big, branchy tree down around the midway point. It seems like it's been there a while. The trail is flat and generally very easy. We saw a pretty big snake on the dam. Again, though, TICKS. My husband and I ended up with at least ten each, crawling up our socks and legs. We had to give our dog a tick bath, and we're still finding them in our house. We sprayed Deep Woods OFF before we started, and it didn't help.

Find trailhead through Google maps using Tunica Falls! It is very pretty area. We went 2 adults and a dog, CHECK everywhere for ticks(and very small ones too) because one of us and the dog had quite a few. Other than that it is hard terrain at timed and a heap of stairs but I say it was worth it! Awesome nature outing!!!

It was a fun hike with 2 adults and a dog! Swamp hike, that can get a little muddy at times but very clearly marked and easy terrain. Chances to see wildlife but be careful and watch for snakes. $3 entry but it was a decent enjoyable time!
