The Witch Dance site is a trailhead for the Witch Dance Horse Trail (part of the Tombigbee National Forest). The horseback and hiking trail is 18 miles long with multiple loops. The trail, one of the most popular horse trails in Mississippi, winds through varied topography and changing forest settings.

Restrooms, hitching posts, and parking are provided.

The very name conjures visions of eerie midnights, swirling black capes and brooms stacked against a nearby tree. The old folks say the witches gathered here to dance and wherever their feet touched the ground the grass withered and died never to grow again. Impossible? Maybe so, but look around. Look for a hidden spot where no grass grows.
