This is the only hiking trail in Mississippi’s Delta National Forest, and it is a good one. Set deep in the swamps of the Yazoo basin in the Blue Lake Recreation Area, the trail cruises the edge of a brooding bayou for much of its length. This trail is located within the Sunflower Wildlife Management Area, part of the Delta National Forest. Note the dispersed campsites along the way in. They are numbered and each one has a picnic table, grill, and lantern post. Leave the boat launch area and head south along Blue Lake. This body of water is part of the greater Howlett Bayou, which connects the Little Sunflower River and the Big Sunflower River.
