Saint Catherine Creek National Wildlife Refuge

Saint Catherine Creek refuge is a 24,589-acre refuge located in southwest Mississippi. It “contains a diverse array of habitat types consisting of bottomland hardwoods, cypress swamps, upland hardwoods on the loess [a type of sediment] bluffs.” There is a 3 mile nature trail with a variety of difficulty:  “The lower section of the trail (South Trailhead) would be better suited for elderly hikers, as there is a .5 mile section (trailhead to photo blind/rookery) that is flat terrain, with one hill that has a gradual incline.  If hikers went to the photoblind/rookery it would be an approximate 1 mile hike roundtrip.  Along the way there is a cypress overlook, open fields for viewing wildlife, benches, a small water impoundment and a small rookery, which has an enclosed photoblind.  Be aware that critters can make their way into the photoblinds, so depending on the season, check carefully for wasps, spiders and potentially snakes before entering blinds.   The surface of the trail is limestone rock, so wheelchairs should also have little to no difficulty with this section of the trail.”
