Chris,

I hike Clear Creek and Black Creek as well. I am planning on doing the Shockaloe Trail in the Beinville NF (near Morton, MS) probably the weekend after this on. I also am going to be doing the Witch Dance trail in the Tombigbee NF (North MS) soon. You could also consider the Long Leaf trail in the DeSoto National Forest near Hattisburg. These trails are all 15 miles or more in length. There are alot of day hiking options as well.

You can contact me at mech_superintendent@yahoo.com

I have not done the entire Black Creek trail, but want to get that done before the year is up.

Hello,

I plan on heading to Mississppi once the job ends for the season. I too will be most interested in hiking in your State. I prefer loop trails myself-even horse trails.

Also, check out the MS Outdoor Club. I'm not part of it, but I hear they do a lot of local hiking activity trips around the state. Their website is msoutdoorclub.org.

Hope this helps.

Never done much hiking in MS. If you ever have the opportunity, drive over to the Smokies and try some of those trails in the winter. Ain't nothin like it. Did 28 miles in February in sub freezing temps up to Thunderhead Mountain (5527 ft) and Rocky Top. Lots of blowing wind and freezing fog up there. Waist high snow drifts. All you got to do is keep moving. Ya'll ought to try it some time.
