The APT crosses the Mississippi River on the western border of Mississippi. The trail makes a second crossing of the Mississippi in Minnesota, near its head waters. From there the trail makes its way into Homochitto National Forest. The restoration of this area began in the 1930’s by the Civilian Conservation Corp. Heading east, the APT encounters long bayous around the Pascagoula Wildlife Management Area. Mississippi is yet another state that does not have a long trail. Join us as we build the Mississippi Trail.
