Just .25 miles off the Trace at Lake
Thoreau Drive (first street west of Jackson Station), the Lake Thoreau
Evnironmental Center and Leon Eubanks Nature Preserve is now open to the
public on Saturday and Sunday. Road bikes will have trouble with the
rough gravel entrance but riders of mountain and cruiser bikes will
enjoy the many trails, fishing lake, beaver pond, picnic tables and lush
forest. Take time one day to enjoy this wonderful resource provided by
Southern Miss, the University of Southern Mississippi.
