Trail Overview

As you enter this trailhead you'll be on hard packed gravel that slowly turns into washouts, so keep a slower pace. As you advance down the trail you'll notice that the woods turn to cutover, soon after that you'll find some deep ruts that are extremely muddy when wet. The majority of this trail is in a prescribed burn area, so don't be alarmed if you see smoke or fire. Some gates may be closed due to seasonal burning. This trail is 10 miles from Forest, MS, so there is plenty of cell reception and places to eat within a short drive.
