Tuxachanie National Recreation Trail

Strictly for those on foot, this trail moves through slightly thicker regions. As it snakes through the DeSoto National Forest approximately 22 miles, it’s visitors will notice a vast array of vegetation and wildlife. This trail is carefully maintained and thorough attempts are made to keep the nearby wildlife intact.

Native Mississippi vegetation such as pitcher plants, tall pines and even the occasional wild orchids adorn the trail. Camping is allowed, but only at a sizeable distance from the path, for appearance’s sake. The surface of the trail is natural, boot-packed earth, so watch your step.
