Noxubee Hills Mountain Bike Trail


The Noxubee Hills Trail is a 32-mile trail established for hiking and biking trails. The trail system consists of a mix of single and double track trails with tight switchbacks, old forest service roads and dirt gravel roads closed to all motorized vehicles. The trails range in technical difficulty from easy to moderate with many challenging trails. These trails are used for hunting primarily during firearm season. Cyclists and hikers should wear a bright orange vest or jacket during firearm season.

All trails are well-marked with two trail heads for the Noxubee Hills Trail system. The northern trailhead is located in the Choctaw Lake Recreation Area and southern trailhead is adjacent to the Noxubee Hill Cemetery which is located on FS Road 956 and can be accessed via MS Hwy 25 and Popular Flat Road. The facilities include parking, trailhead and chemical toilet (SST).

Noxubee Hills Trail is open year-around unless weather conditions require trail to be closed. Noxubee Hill Bike Trail is a fee use area. No attendant will be on duty. Therefore, users should make sure that they have the correct currency before arriving at the recreation area.
