It was a little buggy outside but they offered free bug spray. The trail was very well maintained and it was easy to traverse through the topography. I really enjoyed the indoor exhibit at the end which showed all these different minerals and other natural deposits. I bought some petrified wood earrings which were made in MS so that’s a cool keepsake to have!
