Parks and OutdoorsExpert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • This path makes a 41-mile trek through rich, diverse forests of the De Soto National Forest that veil the corridor of the Black Creek watershed. The trail is not currently completely opened due to the hurricanes.
  • It’s not all water and deep woods in the Gulf Coast Plain of Mississippi —there are open pine forests in the hill country that abuts the Black Creek floodplain.
  • The trail traverses Black Creek Wilderness. Wander through oak woodlands before coming alongside Mill Creek, with its small waterfalls heading noisily for Black Creek. Travel a lengthy stretch of the Black Creek floodplain, sometimes along the river, sometimes tramping up and down little valleys where deer furtively feed in morning.
