Mule drawn wagon train rolls through Big Creek Park in Soso

JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

Several wagon train enthusiasts made their way through Pat Harrison Big Creek 10 Park Thursday.

The caravan of mule drawn wagons has traveled around 100 miles since Saturday in a scenic loop around south central Mississippi. The pack stopped for lunch at Big Creek Park to enjoy the amenities and ride the trails they say are well adapted and wide enough to handle their wagons.

Lionel Ladner says working the mules and wagon is a 30-year passion. "I just love everything about it, everything. I love to work them mules and ride them wagons. I love the people we ride with. This park is as clean as you want to see. I go to a lot of parks and I've been a lot of places and ride. This park is clean, they keep it nice."

Big Creek Park 10 officials say the Trailmix Horse Trails were built in 2009, and each host unique names from various musical artists and songs. Riders say the horse trails are always wide and well maintained.
