Trail Overview

This trail runs along the Mississippi River near the Cat Island National Wildlife Refuge. Depending on the time of year, higher river flood stages can make this trail inaccessible since it lies in a natural flood plain. During dryer periods, the trail is often covered with several inches of silt. This trail provides some great views of the Mississippi River along long undeveloped stretches. The trail itself provides access to a sparse number of camps and old, unused agriculture areas.
