Meridian, the sixth largest city of Mississippi, except of hosting numerous cultural events, offers great opportunities to visitors for recreation all year long. It contains many parks with tennis courts, softball fields, swimming pools etc. Visitors can also experience water skiing, hiking and camping at Bonita Lakes area and Okatibbee Lake.

Bonita Lakes Trail is actually a series of little trails connected by mud, dirt and brief gravel roads in a tight place. The trails are singletrack that have both long cardio-straining hills and windy down-hills, making it challenging for advanced or expert hikers. You start your hiking experience from the trailhead, located in the park at Bonita Lakes and you soon get lost, wandering on the trails, but still not too far, finding your way back again. 

The Bonita Lakes trails are some of the best hiking trails in the state of Mississippi. A great place also for beginners, who want to build climbing tolerance, balance technique and downhill control. They are well-maintained and marked with signs and a “color code” that can lead you to wherever you want to go. There are intersecting trails almost everywhere, so get ready to explore your own route or “call it a day” whenever you choose.

Though, they are not so technical and there are too many roots at some points, it is absolutely sure that you will be a fan of this awesome place, as soon as you step foot on those trails!
