Trail Overview

This is a main access road to Sunflower Wildlife Management Area on the Delta National Forest unit north of Vicksburg. The road is atop a levee, and is flat and featureless, but leads towards a large number of campgrounds, trailheads and recreation opportunities on the Delta NF. Be aware that this area is open to hunting and could have high use during appropriate hunting seasons. In heavy rains, the road is nearly impassable safely due to the slick clay road base. The access road is dirt from the main highway into the National Forest Proclamation boundary.

Main Trail was fine. Side trails are inaccessible without lifted ground clearance and aggressive mud tires. Abandoned efforts to tackle most of the ancillary trails in this forest as they were not well maintained, full of deep ruts into soft mud. Bone Stock Jeep WK got beached in several attempts. Main road in is a road. Side trails be a decent challenge with 4" lift and 32" tires.

Washboard
Road is a washboard, no washouts or anything, but it needs to be graded. When passing other vehicles be careful getting on the side of the road because it’s soft.
