“An awesome trail with lots of climbs and downhills.”— Derrick Davis
Since the Noxubee Crest is a long ridge that forms the top of the watershed for the Noxubee River, the area is particularly scenic with impressive ravines dropping away from the Noxubee Crest area. The trail runs through mainly hardwoods forest. The fire break lane (between mile one and two) borders a stand of young pines. An overlook afforded by the power line right of way, approximately 3 1/2 mi down the trail, is worth a break to enjoy, particularly in the winter when leaves are off the trees.
The western end of this trail borders private land and ends when the trail Ts onto Rockcrusher Road, a gated forest road which is part of the trail system. There are two trails that connect with Sheep Ranch Trail, the first is Log Jump trail at about 1.4 miles and the second is the Power Line Trail at about 4 miles.
