The days will soon be cooling off and the smell of camp fires will be in the air. If you're looking for an escape to the wilderness, it's closer than you think. The Long Leaf Horse Camp and Trails are located between Laurel and Richton, about 30 minutes from Petal and up Hwy 42, and then a left onto Hwy 15, entering into the Chickasawhay District of The DeSoto National Forest. This is not to be confused with The Longleaf Trace, "Rails to Trails".
This is one of my favorite places to get away to. I can hear the wind wooing me from on top of the Longleaf pines, to go a little deeper into the nature to clear the clutter from my mind. It doesn't get much better than when I'm out there in the woods on my loyal mount with a group of friends. Hope you enjoy. "Life is good".
