Shepard State Park

Shepard State Park is located on the Singing River in Pascagoula River country, where legends say members of the Pascagoula Indian nation linked hands and walked into the Pascagoula River rather than be taken captive by hostile Indian tribes. The mournful death chant earned the Pascagoula River the nickname "Singing River." Tales of the heroic exploits of French and Spanish settlers and romantic legends of the Pascagoula and Biloxi Indians are standard fare in the scenic coastal area surrounding Shepard State Park.

The Wetlands

One of the reasons for Shepard State Park is to help preserve some of the wetlands here in the Mississippi Delta.

Hiking Trail

There is a nice nature trail here. I am not sure the total length but it was a pretty easy trail with nice views of the wetlands.
