CCC Camp Trail Loop

This is one of the best hiking trails in the Mid South! The rock formations and terrain resembles trails you would normally find in the Appalachian Mountains. The trail is relatively easy along much of the loop but the lack of switchbacks up and down some of the hills make for a moderate climb.

This is one of the best hikes in the Mid South! The Rock outcroppings and terrain resembles trails found only in the Mountains.

Really fun trail! Took my 3 year old with me to wear him out a little and he had a good time. The area was very clean and well laid out. Had no problems with the trail we even had the opportunity to see a few animals.

A friend and I hiked and camped along the Tally's Creek Trail which is the longest of three loop trails that interconnect. There are plenty of small creeks throughout the trail. Trail runs next to a trailer which was unappealing. Crossed over several roads. Very hilly and nice scenery throughout.

Natchez Trace Parkway - Cypress Swamp Hike

Short but sweet. Excellent signage along the way describing the trees and the role this swamp plays in the surrounding environment. Learn mostly what you are looking at in the water are water tupelo trees and not cypress. A don't miss if you are traveling on the Natchez Trace and need to stretch your legs for 15 or so minutes.

This was the first real trail that we took the whole family on. It is really off the main highway so bring what you need. We got there at about 1 in the afternoon and the weather was great. My girls, 8 & 12, could not wait to get started. The trail was much hillier than we expected which made it much more arduous than we expected, but also more fun. Some of the waterfalls were mere trickles but other were very beautiful. We saw several other families on the trail so we were not totally isolated. In all, we loved it. My wife and I were very happy that the girls enjoyed it as much as they did and did not complain once. They can't wait to do it again. It looks like we have a new family activity and will have to invest in hiking shoes all around. Great trail if a little far out, worth the ride.

I went camping here with a couple of friends and we were all impressed. Much better biking trails than we expected around here. My friend who doesn't really bike was tired and walked part of the trails. Biking is my main form of transportation but the hills ranged from easy to difficult and I had to walk my bike up some of them too. It was a good challenge for everyone, and a nice forest to ride in. We would have liked to do more primitive camping but we settled for a camp site that didn't have close neighbors because there's really not any flat ground outside of the marked areas.

Great views of Black Creek. Descent elevation variance for this area. Can't wait to do it again. May camp next time.

Awesome Trail!! Was much more challenging than I thought and much longer. You have to be well prepared! Bring enough water (we had water bottles so got water from the springs) and full belly. Make sure you get there early. It got dark when we got out and we almost got lost at one point. But there are reflectors so that helped.
