Mountain Biking Hernando Point

***   Add a review
#20 of 34 mountain bike trails in Mississippi
#8753 in the world

The trail is well-maintained and consists of two sections. The first (green marker) is a short loop called Backwater. It's an easy 2.2 miles. The second section (blue marker) is called Possum Kingdom and is more strenuous. It begins halfway through Backwater at a fork. Possum Kingdom is out and back, 4 miles one way. Nice views of Arkabutla Lake, single track, nothing too technical, but not a beginner's trail. The last part of Possum Kingdom passes through hunting land, and hunter orange vests are strung to a tree during hunting season for bikers to wear.

    A two section trail. A short easy loop and a 4-mile, one-way, out and back, more difficult section. It's a nice system, and if the out and back section were a loop, I'd give it 4 stars.
