Hike the Tuxachanie Trail

Mississippi Tuxachanie Trailhead

Added by The Outbound Collective

A remote day hike with lakes, a pond, and forested trail along the way.

This day hike portion of the 23 mile Tuxachanie Trail (white blazes) starts by the shore of Airey Lake. Shortly the trail turns and follows Tuxachanie Creek through a longleaf pine forest. You will pass by a duck pond, as well.

At the first T junction after the pond, turn left. At the next three Y junctions keep to your right, with a creek crossing in between. You will reach a small lake at 7 miles, which is a good place to turn around for a 14 mile roundtrip hike.
