Be sure to wear your walking shoes. It's so peaceful there that you'll probably take your time.

A short, but beautiful, 1/2 mile trail. Study up ahead of time and you'll get more out of it. There is a fossil museum, mining flume, picnic area and VERY reasonably priced store too.

Bring a lunch! They have a great picnic area. I visited with my homeschooled children. It was amazing and incredibly informative. Read the whole pamphlet while hiking. Lots of great facts.

There is a six block walking trail on pine needle covered ground, so wear walking shoes. I did it with a walker, so it's pretty easy.

The forest is interesting but the fossil and mineral/gem collections in the gift shop are amazing! Beautiful stuff for sale too! :)

From Our Editors

Tremendous trees with 12-foot-wide trunks towered a hundred feet into the sky 36 million years ago, dominating the landscape for centuries before succumbing to the passage of time. An ancient river carried them halfway across the continent and deposited them in a logjam in Mississippi, where they slowly turned to stone. Though the river is long gone, the site thrives today as registered national landmark. The Mississippi Petrified Forest showcases the lifecycle of these primordial trees turned petrified logs.

A shady six-block nature trail winds around the site and ends at an earth-science museum, which contains a collection of dinosaur footprints, whale bones, and a prehistoric camel. Patrons can also screen rocky samples in a water flume for rough gemstones that they can take home or use to save their neighborhood from land developers.
