This trail winds through the hills and hollows above Choctaw Lake Recreation Area. Carved out of an abandoned nature trail, it offers a multitude of environments—lush rich hollows, pine-oak ridgetops, and a wooded marsh, plus occasional man-made wildlife. Choctaw Lake Recreation Area, one of the finest national forest facilities in Mississippi, offers a campground open during the warm season, fishing, and swimming, in addition to hiking. The Chata Trail heads away from Choctaw Lake, tracing an old roadbed through stone gates that once led to cabins, built when the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) originally developed the recreation area in the 1930s.
