Travel to the Chickasawhay Ranger District on any day and discover the hidden beauty that lies among the rustling pines. If you are lucky enough to venture out on a sunny day, the rays of sunshine peaking through the tall dark green pines will take your breath away. Even on a rainy day, you can drive through the forest and see tall stands of longleaf pine with the ground covered in beautiful bright kelly green bracken fern.

Stop and take a walk down the dirt roads and discover the breathtaking views of the many fields of wildflowers. Sit on a tree stump or bring you a blanket and just listen. You may hear birds chirping, frogs croaking, or maybe a turkey gobbling in the distance. You may be fortunate enough to walk through the forest when you cannot hear anything; just revere the quietness and solitude. We invite you to come anytime and see the picturesque settings of nature on your National Forests.
