Bear Creek Nature Trail is an easy hike in Tishomingo State Park, Mississippi. This trail is kid and dog friendly, but your furry kids must be on leash. The park website says "this trail begins in the picnic area beyond the swimming pool. It follows along Bear Creek, crossing streams and small springs. It shares space with Chickasaw Disc Golf Course so be cognizant of flying objects. The trail ends at the Pioneer Cabin area." There is camping available in Tishomingo State Park.

History

The park takes its name from the leader of the Chickasaw nation, Chief Tishomingo. The famous Natchez Trace Parkway, the premier highway of the early 1800s and a modern scenic parkway, runs directly through the park.
