This is Buffalo Wilderness Area - about 60 minute drive from my house. Very fortunate to have this type of wilderness this close to home. Those trees are too far apart to suspend a hammock.

The Ozark Highland Trail is a great multi-day hike... or you can hike the Buffalo River Trail to see some great vistas above the river and rock formations... or my favorite, do some stategic bushwhacking across the wilderness to find these great waterfalls after it rains. Either route, this is great country. Yesterday, the forest was just about to pop green.. lots of buds and a few dogwoods and red buds starting to flower. I'm guessing this area is about a 6 hour drive from Vicksburg.
Here's a few resources if you're interested:
