De Soto National Forest’s Tuxachanie Trail boasts 12 miles of gorgeous South Mississippi wildlife and scenery, including pine savannahs, swamps, and a variety of native flora including carnivorous pitcher plants. Visitors enter the trail to a beautiful, long row of live oaks planted in 1935. The first five miles of trail after on the west side follow an abandoned railroad line built in the early 1900s by Irish immigrants. The trail is fairly flat, making it easy walking for adults and children alike, and includes several sections of elevated wooden footbridges.
