Hike the Clark Creek Primitive Trail
Mississippi › Clark Creek Primitive Trail
Added by The Outbound Collective
A hike to a number of creek cascades, with some summer splashing along the way.
Many small cascades can be found along this creek. On hot summer days, it's a great place to jump in and cool off.
There is a $3 fee per vehicle, plus an addition dollar per person for groups larger than two.

Hills, y'all, hills!
This was a really nice hike going towards the creek, but when you're so excited about exploring someplace new you forget you have to go back. Going in was all peachy keen cause that meant going down hill. The going back part meant going up hills. Lots and lots of hills. I'm from New Orleans, y'all. We have flat and flater. It's so flat we built a hill (Monkey Hill in Audubon Zoo) so kids of New Orleans could see what a hill looks like. I almost died trying to make it up these hills. I started praying for the strength for my short legs to make it, and I guess the good Lord likes me and I made it out. Other than that, it was a really nice hike!
Best Hike In South Louisiana
This is a great hike and probably one of the hilliest that you'll find in South Louisiana. It's definitely a bit primitive - you'll be walking along the creek bank for much of it and climbing over boulders in more than one part. Expect to get your feet wet!
Best Option For LA/MS Hike
This is pretty much the only option for decent hiking in the state. It's a lot of fun, lots of rocks and creek beds to climb on and explore. The waterfall is best in spring and summer, after lots of rain.
Unique Southern Waterfall
This is the only waterfall that I know of in this area and its actually pretty good. The best time is summer when the waterfall is flowing more and you can stand under it for a relief from the summer heat. The hills in this area are also some of the best places in Mississippi or Louisiana to land a trophy white tail. There are plenty of farms around this area that offer guided hunts. Also if you are visiting Clark Creek in Fall, then check out the Angola State Prison Rodeo held every weekend in October. The prison is just 20 minutes west across the Louisiana State line.
