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.

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.
