One Of The Most Beautiful Day Hikes In America Is Right Here In Mississippi
One of the best ways to really appreciate Mississippi’s natural beauty is to surround yourself with it. Here’s a hiking trail system that’s the perfect place for day of hiking.
The Clear Spring Recreation Area in Homochitto National Forest offers a trail system that makes an 11-mile loop.
Pay a $5 parking fee, then start hiking! The shortest trail, the Clear Springs Loop Trail is just one mile; you can add on several other trails to hike for as far as you'd like.
The loop trail takes you around the lake, and is a fairly easy hike.
Other trails are a bit more strenuous, but allow you to see even more of this beautiful area.
Some sections of the trails have stairs, so they're more moderately difficult.
This area is breathtakingly beautiful, so make sure you have your camera at the ready.
If you're planning on hiking all 11 miles, get an early start so that you'll be back before dark. The Clear Spring Recreation Area is also a wonderful place for a picnic.
