Enjoy the parkway as you climb north to one of the highest points in Mississippi, 603 feet above sea level.
About the Rides
There are 23, 44 and 70-mile options. The out and back 70-mile route will take you North of French Camp where the more challenging climbing starts. On your way to one of the highest points in Mississippi, you'll go over what locals call the holy ghost. You'll then be on a fast decent to Jeff Busby camping area. Once you leave the Pkwy you'll climb 200 feet in just under a mile to Little Mountain Summit.
