For those of you who prefer the scenic route, you can climb to the very top of Mississippi and get sweeping forest views. There's a path up Woodall Mountain in Tishomingo County that will take you to the highest point in the state. Best of all, it won't cost you a thing. This easy excursion is one of the best free things to do in Mississippi.\nYou'll find Woodall Mountain tucked away in Iuka, Mississippi, standing at 806 feet above sea level. The hike to its summit is quick, only about a one-mile trek in total.\nThe small stature of the mountain makes this one of the cutest little hikes in the state, but if you're not feeling like whipping out the boots for this one, you can also drive to the top.\nEither way, you're sure to get some beautiful views.\nWhile this mini-mountain isn't exactly the tallest peak in the South, it does have some stunning scenery. Gaze out at the dreamy rolling green landscape as you wind through trees and rust-colored sandstone paths.\nOne of the biggest draws for this little trail is for members of the Highpointers Club, a group of hikers that promotes reaching the topmost spot in all 50 states.\nView this post on Instagram Follow the yellow brick road ⬆️⛰ #mississippi #road #highpoint #woodallmountain #yellow #mountainroad #ammountainadventures #driving #optoutside #nature #forest #highpointersclub #hiking A post shared by A.M.

A couple from Illinois who started their high pointing journey in October arrived on the summit at the same time as me. Always fun to compare numbers and talk High points with others. And, of course, have someone help take your picture. 🌲 #explorerchick #OutdoorChick #Adventure #travel #roadtrip #highpoint #woodallmountain #mississippi A post shared by Nicki Bruckmann (@nickibruckmann) on Apr 11, 2016 at 12:21pm PDT\nHighpoint Club members embedded a plaque in a large rock that sits at the top of Woodall Mountain to mark the highest point. The rock is a popular spot for a quick photo op to document your hiking achievement.\nView this post on Instagram I go to some out of the way places sometimes.

You'll find a scenic swinging bridge at the park that's also worth the visit.\nView this post on Instagram I took a short side trip to Tishomingo, Mississippi, to knock out another high point at nearby Woodall Mountain located in the northeast corner of the state. It has rained and rained so much lately that parts of the south are still underwater. I would say the hardest part of van life has been trying to stay one step ahead of the weather.
