Al Scheller Trail is a difficult hike in Vicksburg National Military Park in Mississippi. The park website says "the Al Scheller Hiking Trail is a primitive, 12.5-mile foot path which traverses the most rugged and natural areas of Vicksburg National Military Park. Designed as a compass course, it winds through open fields, to the bottoms of steep ravines, into wooded areas, across several stream beds, and exposes the hiker to locations of historical and natural interest." There is no camping available in Vicksburg National Military Park.
