This hike traces a winding track along the west shoreline of scenic 260-acre Chewalla Lake, traveling about the recreation area facilities and also by an old Indian mound. It continues curving among hills to reach the lake dam, which it crosses before ending. This hike is just one highlight of this fine North Mississippi recreation destination, which also offers fishing and camping. The 260-acre lake is named for its main feeder branch, Chewalla Creek. The Choctaw word “Chewalla” means Supreme Being, and refers to the Indian mound that is preserved as part of the recreation area. A quality twenty-seven-site campground, with hot showers, makes for a good base camp to enjoy this hiking trail as well as the swim beach, playground, and boat ramp for fishing.
