Unlike many of the hikes found farther west, the Magnolia State is a bit of a hidden gem when it comes to scenic treks through nature. But all bias aside, with expansive views, lush landscapes, abundant wildlife, and perfect weather nearly year-round, the Southeast is hard to beat when it comes to experiencing the great outdoors! However, all of this diverse natural beauty also comes with a catch: it can be hard to choose just one perfect, family-friendly hike. Fortunately, Mississippi State University’s Crosby Arboretum showcases multiple unique habitats and terrains all in one place – each highlighting a vibrant piece of the South’s landscape that is sure to make you love our state all the more.
