Explore Mississippi’s Little Grand Canyon
The Mississippi Wildlife Federation says it’s time to visit “Mississippi’s Little Grand Canyon” Red Bluff Park. Located in Morgantown, MS, Red Bluff is quite a natural phenomenon. Rising up 400 feet from the valley, Red Bluff is a 3-mile climb of winding road to the top of a peak where one can see over 30 miles away out into the Pearl River Valley. The Bluff canyon itself is an eroded area of land where variant colors of red, orange, yellow, gold, and brown clays mix to create a colorful display. Highway 587 was diverted from this area, because the road was in danger of sinking in. Today, it’s a popular tourist attraction for those on the country drive and especially for those owning motorcycles. Tell us what you see, and share your on our facebook page.
