This Incredible Red Canyon Is The Perfect Day Trip From New Orleans

Just because Louisiana has loads of incredible spots to visit, doesn't mean you don't want to get out of the Pelican State every once in a while. If you're looking for the perfect road trip, look no further than one to Mississippi. From New Orleans, a road trip to Mississippi is just two hours long if you plan on making a stop at one of the state's most incredible, and colorful canyons.

Red Bluff in Foxworth Mississippi is a place you'll never forget being able to see with your own eyes.

It's earned its nickname as the "Little Grand Canyon," for, some would say, obvious reasons. 

Its size doesn't quite reach the grandeur of the actual Grand Canyon, however, its beauty is certainly up to par.

The soil of the canyon is a mix of red and orange, which is how it became the Red Bluff. Be careful when you're ready to take a seat because the color of the soil does stain.

However, once you've spent two hours sitting in a car driving from New Orleans, sitting again is probably going to be the least of your concerns.

Along your hike, you'll get the chance to take in incredible views, thanks to how high up parts of the canyon sit.

There are streams along the way that'll lead you to the Pearl River.

Just, don't expect there to be literal pearls, like there is literal red coloring at the bluff. 

There's a forest, a railroad, and much more nearby if you're looking for a change of scenery in an already scenic location.

Start planning your trip to Red Bluff now if you're interested, who knows what other parts of Mississippi you'll want to explore!
