This is a pleasant walk between the Ole Miss museum and William Faulkner's home. I parked in the museum parking lot and walked to the home and back. It is mostly in a shaded wooded area on a clearly marked trail. I did pass several...More

The trail through Bailey's Woods is what William Faulkner once used to get from his home to the museum on the Ole Miss campus. Today it is a path for walkers, hikers, people walking their dogs and tourists visiting Faulkner's home. While it is not...More

This walk through the woods is about 3/5th mile in length. Easy trek when dry, with only slight elevations. Not suitable for anyone with a cane or motorized assistance. Likely to be hot in the middle of the summer but the overhead canopy naturally shades....More

I walk this path at least once a day. It is a very nice place to get away from everything, it is pretty uneven but leads to Rowan Oak. This is another good sight to see.

Was visiting Rowan Oak--Faulkner's home back in March 2011, and walked a short part of this trail after a tour of the home. Very easy path for walking and no need to be on the look out for bikes, as it is pedestrian only.

Great little walk on a nice day, located behind the baseball stadium. Cool streams. Smelled awful for a short bit near the swamp

Not really much as far as woods go. Just a path way from Faulkner's home to the museum. If it is not to hot than a peaceful short walk maybe a 1/2 mile.

This trail is not too difficult of a walk. My son and I did it when we weren't even really prepared to go on a hike. I did originally think it made a loop back to Rowan Oak, and it does not, so be prepared...More
