Trail Description
About this trail
This is a series of loops utilizing singletrack, doubletrack and forestry roads to complete the entire course. The singletrack is new and still rather primitive, but there are almost no techical obstacles on it. The trail is marked with tags with bicycle symbols on them, orange tags leading away from the lake trailhead, yellow tags leading back, and blue ta**howing crosstrails. Maps plotted by GPS are available at the Ranger Station on Highway 15. The singletrack generally leads directly into hardwood forests, following ridges and traversing sidehills, but sometimes going into low places where there are occasional,well-made bridges to cross.

update: the trails are being ridden more and more, and have become much faster and the trail junctions are very well marked with 'you are here' maps

Review: Good trail system. It seems to be under appreciated. Very diverse, it has double and single track as well as different scenery. Bring what you may need because the trail is very rural... that is half of the excitement.

Review: Thanksgiving weekend rides were fantastic in the cooler fall weather with a lot of color left in the trees. Trails were in excellent condition and uncrowded as usual. Only saw three other riders over 4 days of riding. This is a great trail system with something for everyone. I rode all or parts of Splashing Dog
Rabbit Run
Lost Cemmetary Road
Rockcrusher
Three Bridges
B Connector
North Trail
Beaver Lodge
Lakeside
Cabin Lake Trail
All are well marked and easy to follow.

Review: I rode the trail for the first time today and really enjoyed it. It was mostly hard packed with no mud and marked very well. There were a lot of leaves, but for this time of year that's expected.

Review: Today was my first day out on this trail. I have been meaning to ride it for a while now. First I want to say thank you to everyone who takes care of the trail, especially after the storm a few weeks back. The trail doesn't seem to see a ton of traffic so there were plenty of spider webs etc. but was in great condition considering. I didn't ride nearly all of the trail but covered a good bit of trail near the south trailhead. In addition to the singletrack, there was some fun doubletrack trails connecting the singletrack. The trails were well marked. I got a little turned around out there but it was my fault for not studying the map close enough before I left. There were plenty of trail maps posted along the way as well. I was pleasantly surprised by the fun climbs and decents considering it is in the middle of Mississippi. For the area I could not be happier. Before my ride I posted on a local facebook page for the trail and had some very helpful responses within a few minutes.

Great people with great work ethics have made a great system out of the beautiful area. Thick woods like the park are difficult to maintain I am sure.

If any of y'all read this, thank you and hopefully I can meet y'all and help with the trails next work day.

If you are in the area, this place is worth the trip for sure. I look forward to going back and trying more of the trail.

Review: Trails are in serious need of maintenance and repair. A lot of trees and large limbs down from recent storms. Does not look like they are riden very often as most trails were overgrown. Need to check for ticks and poison ivy after that attempt. Got frustrated and eventually went and rode on the roads and hiking trails around the lake. I was generous with a 2 rating in their current condition but I think these could be decent trials if they were maintained.

Review: This is an awesome trail system, thanks to Charlotte Fuquay and all the hard work put into maintaining these trails. Very easily mapped trails, there are trail markers and signs everywhere, there are miles and miles of great singletrack here, along with great camping sites( I'm camping at the south trailhead now waiting for the skool of hard nox 50 mile endurance race tomorrow morning).

Review: The original review/description of the Noxubee Hills Trail System is very old. There are new trails and IMBA standard reroutes that have been built. There is now about 30 miles of trails. Mostly fast flowing single track, with short sections of closed forestry service roads. Great scenery and hills to climb and fast downhill sections. The newest reroutes to the 3 Bridges Trail and Power Line Trail, make the west end of the trail system a "must ride" section. Also the Noxubee Hill Trail System is now on FaceBook

Review: Good long trail that is physically demanding. There are some long switchbacks that can really wear you down.. Similar to Clear Creek in Natchez, but the hills are a bit longer... fun trail.. Some good fast downhill sections at times... doable even in the summer because of the tree canopy. You pretty much stay in the shade for the whole 20+ miles... make sure you bring a trail map, it can get confusing if you dont know the names. The trails are very well marked if you know the names and have a map. There is no water at the south trailhead, so bring plenty of water
