The Little Sun is lined by deep woods punctuated with large trees. These woods are home to a variety of animals and birds, indicative of the bottomland hardwood forests that once crowded the entire Mississippi Delta. Explore side bayous for animal sightings and to view the big trees (but longer length of travel).
The muddy banks thrive with aquatic life and forest creatures including beaver, turtles, wild turkeys, squirrels, wild hog, snakes, white-tailed deer and the black bear. Low lying swamp privets, water elms and flowering bushes give way higher up the bank to an impressive forest of hardwoods.
Delta National Forest is one of the most expansive tracts of bottomland hardwood forest in North America, and is the single largest such forest in the entire National Forest system.
