"Take a rugged hike at Tishomingo State Park. Here, the Appalachian foothills have stuck their toe into Mississippi and Bear Creek has cut a rocky gorge through sandstone, making for a park unlike any other in this book. The Outcroppings Trail travels high and low through the Bear Creek Canyon, revealing a rocky stream and stone features such as rockhouses, overhangs, and clifflines. The Swinging Bridge, built in 1939 by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), is approximately 6 feet wide and spans Bear Creek between rustic stone abutments. The bridge, in many ways the enduring symbol of this park, is just one example of the handiwork of the CCC boys that has resulted in the entire state park being put on the National Register of Historic Places. The level track, marked with red paint blazes, meanders through creekside woodland dominated by white oaks and pines. Ground cover is dense with lush ferns that reflect the physiographic region that is an extension of the Appalachian foothills." Read more
