Tunica Hills / Clark Creek Hiking Outing

Outings Mountain Hiking Banner

Got a summertime hiking itch that needs scratching? Delta Chapter of the Sierra Club can help with that. We're leading a hike at the Clark Creek area on June 14. Members and Friends throughout Louisiana are invited to participate. Clark Creek Natural Area in the Tunica Hills is a member favorite hiking destination despite being forgiveably located just across the state line in Mississippi which was a part of the Delta Chapter in our founding years. This area has waterfalls and hiking trails deep in the Tunica Hills. There are improved steps on the hillsides, on some waterfalls, and most trails are maintained with primitive trails also available.

Difficulty: Clark Creek can be a challenging hike. Due to summertime afternoon heat conditions, please come prepared with PLENTY of WATER, good hiking shoes, nutrition, bug and sunblock, a hat and anything else experienced hikers would require. Some hikers prefer to carry poison ivy neutralizer to wash off with after a hike.

Some supplies may available at POND GENERAL STORE near the trailhead, otherwise plan ahead for needed items or make a pit-stop in St. Francisville.

Parking: Trailhead parking is limited and may require parking on side of road. Bring cash for honor system visitor fees. Carpooling strongly encouraged. (See links below for details.)

Questions? - RSVP? Where are we meeting to carpool?

Persons requesting carpooling may wish to RSVP as a courtesy via email no later than Friday morning before the hike, leaving your name, # of hikers, and phone number with the contact persons listed below for your area.
