The Clark Creek Natural Area, a state park in Mississippi, featuring 50 waterfalls (John Snell)
Woodville, Miss. - The Louisiana-Mississippi state line may not conjure up images of rolling hills and waterfalls. However, that is exactly what visitors find in the Clark Creek Natural Area, which feels like a slice of a national park.
As a creek snakes its way through a mixed hardwood and pine forest, it drops suddenly to create a spectacle.
The 700-acre state park features 50 waterfalls, ranging in size from 10-30 feet.
Clark Creek is also a workout. While some of the trails are paved, others are primitive and require a bit of climb.
Only about a two-and-a-half-hour drive from New Orleans, the Clark Creek Natural Area rests about seven miles inside Mississippi.
If you decide to venture there, be prepared for a challenging hike, featuring elevation changes, and bring plenty of bottled water.
