Multi-use recreation is a key feature along FR 426 in this 518,000-acre De Soto National Forest segment. Scattered amongst the mature Long Leaf and Loblolly Pines, one can find camping, hiking, designated bicycle trails, and designated motorcycle trails in this no-fee area of the national forest. The Bethel Bicycle Trail Recreation Area is one of southern Mississippi's few mountain bike-specific trail networks.
The gently rolling terrain in the De Soto National Forest means little elevation change for your outdoor activities. While recreating, however, one should tread lightly as several venomous snake species call the De Soto National Forest home.
