A beautiful and quiet place to commune with nature and see, touch and learn about the awesomeness of petrified wood and how it came to be.

We loved this hike. Easy hike, explained nicely in the guide map. It was pouring rain and while the umbrellas didn’t keep us dry, the trail had almost no mud … mostly sand and a short paved section. The museum was interesting if you enjoy rocks, minerals and fossils. Well worth the price. Would recommend to family and friends.

We had a really nice time. Not the perfect time of year to go should’ve waited about another month and went when it was greener so you could see all the different plants but the kids had a great time.

About Mississippi Petrified Forest

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.
