Woodville, Miss. - The Louisiana-Mississippi state line may not conjure up images of rolling hills and waterfalls.  However, that is exactly what visitors find in the Clark Creek Natural Area, which feels like a slice of a national park.

As a creek snakes its way through a mixed hardwood and pine forest, it drops suddenly to create a spectacle.  

The 700-acre state park features 50 waterfalls, ranging in size from 10-30 feet.

Clark Creek is also a workout.  While some of the trails are paved, others are primitive and require a bit of climb.

Only about a two-and-a-half-hour drive from New Orleans, the Clark Creek Natural Area rests about seven miles inside Mississippi. 

If you decide to venture there, be prepared for a challenging hike, featuring elevation changes, and bring plenty of bottled water.
