“The Headwater Trail is distinctly different from the other trails in this trail system.”— Derrick Davis
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.
