Tallahatchie National Wildlife Refuge

Tallahatchie National Wildlife Refuge

This refuge consists of 4,199 acres in Grenada and Tallahatchie Counties.  “… the refuge’s largest unit is a patchwork of old fields and small scattered hardwood bottomland forests bisected  by the meandering Tippo Bayou.”

There is a boardwalk north of Highway 8, about one mile down Mabus Road. “This walk takes visitors through a forested wetland and terminates at an observation tower where hikers can look out over a field of grass and see wildlife such as white-tailed deer…… Wood ducks, hooded mergansers, herons and egrets, water snakes, and turtles can often be seen in the wetlands surrounding the wooden walkway.”

Trails are partially accessible, call for more information!
