Thacker Mountain Trail Professional Review and Guide

"The Thacker Mountain Trail is a trunk path following an old railroad grade, with numerous singletrack paths splintering from it. Located in Oxford, the rail trail is popular with walkers, hikers, and runners. The wide former railbed is the main route into a trail system with numerous spur paths splitting off. These are mainly mountain bike trails and hiking trails that twist and turn back on themselves.

These unorganized trails were developed by users and change over time. Therefore, if you want to enjoy them, I recommend repeatedly visiting this spot and learning and developing your own routes, using this rail trail as the trunk of your hiking experience here. First, pass around a trailhead pole gate, which is normally closed, and join a level grade that once was part of the Mississippi Central Railroad line, laid in the 1850s."
