This Hike Takes You To A Place Mississippi’s First Residents Left Behind

Mississippi is home to some great hiking trails, but the Rocky Springs Trail has got to be one of the best. Not only does it include beautiful natural sites, but it leads straight to the remnants of an abandoned town. The best part is, the trail is nice and short, so it’s perfect for all ages and skill levels. Take a look:
