This trail makes the longest single loop in the state—nearly 23 miles of trekking pleasure. The mostly level path winds through remote woodlands of east-central Mississippi. Be apprised this trail is shared with horses, which turns some hikers off. However, the Bienville National Forest keeps it in good shape, making it doable for hikers as well. Backpackers enjoy the loop, and day hikers can make a long day trip or divide the hike into segments, as the Shockaloe occasionally crosses roads. Two campgrounds—one at the trailhead—can serve as hiker base camps.
