Bear Creek Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Tishomingo State Park, 1,530 acres, is set among outlier foothills of the Appalachian Mountains and is Mississippi’s high country. This hike travels along Bear Creek, with its stone outcrops towering over rapids, then turns away from the valley. This hike explores the human and natural history of Tishomingo State Park, a place considered to have the finest hiking in the Magnolia State. Be prepared for a rocky trek and take your time. Leave the park picnic area and follow a couple of disc golf holes that leave you wondering if you are on the right path. Nearby Bear Creek flows quietly, shaded by large beech trees. Beyond a 65-foot bridge spanning a tributary, the Bear Creek valley reveals mossy stones and ferns. The trail narrows, crossing intermittent feeder branches flowing into Bear Creek. Beard cane makes the lush valley even thicker."
