Holly Springs Mississippi 38634
Just an hour's drive from Memphis in north-central Mississippi and extending nearly to the Tennessee border, the Holly Springs National Forest covers 147,000 acres. The park includes about 50 lakes which provide opportunities for warm-water fishing, boating and swimming. The forest is populated with pines, oaks, and dogwoods that provide habitat for stocked game and migratory waterfowl.
The Puskas Lake Hiking Trail is an environmental learning trail with interpretive signs. Chewalla Lake Hiking Trail offers nearly 4.5 miles of primitive and fairly difficult hiking; the trail takes a southern route from the recreation area and circles the lake to a point on the northeast side where it terminates at Johnston Mill Pond. Camping and picnic areas are available.
