There's an extant park that could be connected to a larger trail. A neighborhood, the ever-so-popular "mixed use" kind that's got a restaurant or two, some houses, and a little light industry.
The Rails to Trails cleaned up some of this a while back, but - people are still dumping trash out here, and not just in a "littering" kind of way.
On down the road, even the corporate husks over at Entergy have gotten in on the FP Jerome bike-trail bandwagon, by promising a sort of cartoon overlay. I'm honestly not expecting much more than this sign.
Here at Entergy Station, which is sadly not a space station but just what you humans call a "park," I saw the first indication that this was part of the Rails to Trails program. Also, part of the "Heart of Mississippi Trails," which is something I had not heard of until I read it on this sign.
Still, it's associated with the Bike Walk Mississippi, which is a good sign.
Now I was on a strong trail, the smell of Mexican food was in the air, and nothing barred my path. While I wasn't speeding along like I would be on a totally sweet bike trail, this was my fault, as I wasn't biking. I was walking. For picture-taking purposes.
So I passed underneath Fortification Street, the street most likely to get a hilariously misspoken name by your out-of-town in-laws. Traversing the forbodding stone pillars, covered in pretty decent graffiti (and some shitty stuff too, let's not lie) I found myself entering a dangerous no-man's land. On my left, the good side of town. On my right, the swamp. The trail would take me down the middle, and towards the mythical land of Flowood.
