Southeast of Hattiesburg near New Augusta in the DeSoto National Forest, the 30 mile Black Creek Trail crosses 90 bridges while passes dense forest of sweet gum, pine and cypress. It would be smart to be prepared to get wet while hiking this scenic trail.

To reach the trailhead from Hattiesburg, head east on US98 for 20 miles to New Augusta. Proceed south on SR29 for 19 miles to the Black Creek trailhead parking area. The best stretch of trail runs southeast from the trailhead parking.

Overall, Black Creek Trail is the 3rd most popular hiking trail of all 10 hikes in Mississippi. Several of the better hiking trails are nearby Black Creek Trail including South Loop Bethel Trail, Longleaf Horse Trail System and Tuxachanie Trail.
