Trail Overview

This trail route runs through the Tunica Hills Louisiana Wildlife Management Area. The route consists of gravel and dirt roads that are carved on the top of ridge lines that at times have 50-100 foot drop-offs as close as 5-10 feet from the main trail. The majority of the trail is covered by old-growth canopies that provide shade during the drive, but also require more time to dry out wet areas on the trail. This trail and others in the immediate area offer a very different and exciting topography than most people expect to see in Louisiana and Mississippi. Near the beginning of the trail is a free WMA camping area with amazing views, especially in the wintertime when the canopy is bare. There are also a variety of trail spurs to explore and quiet areas to take a break.
