The Headwater Trail is distinctly different from the other trails in this trail system.

Features -none-

The Noxubee Hills Trail System is in a multiuse National Forest area. During hunting seasons, primarily deer and turkey (spring), you should wear BLAZE ORANGE. All forest users are expected to wear blaze during hunting seasons. There are not a lot of hunters in this area but there are some. A blaze vest or shirt ensures your visibility. Rangers are emphatic that all trail users need to comply with this safety rule.

Description

This trail was constructed by the Forest Service and is distinctly different from the other trails in this trail system in several ways. The maintanence that is done on this trail is done with a bush hog mower. The hills, of which there are many, are steep.

The trail begins about midway on the Chata Trail and ends on the Lakeside Trail at the backwaters of the lake. The trail runs up and down the steep hills that form the headwaters for the Noxubee River and Choctaw Lake. There are springs and numerous creeks all of which are bridged. The area is stunningly scenic and most of the trail is in hardwood forest.

The trail is well marked with tile markers but can be hard to follow in spots because the trail is not yet heavily used and is infrequently mowed.
