Written Directions

I usually begin this ride on the south side in Grenada by following Hwy. 333 through Grenada. Take 333 south then take a left on to Lakeview Drive (Route 8). Head southeast down to Gore Springs, MS where you want to take a left on toe Graysport Crossing Rd and head north. Now you'll cross the damn and take a left on to Gums Crossing Rd where you will continue north up to Route 330. Take a left on to Route 330 and it will take you into Coffeeville, MS. Now just look for Route 7 and take a left and this will take you all the way back into Grenada, MS and complete your loop.

Scenery

Tons of pine trees and bluffs with a great view of Grenada lake from the dam road. The route travels through or near many wildlife areas (see amenities section for names).

Drive Enjoyment

For the most part the road is in good condition. Just beware of motorists taking curbs too wide and park rangers on patrol. There are plenty of twists and turns and little stops to let the rest of your group catch up. This ride only lasts around 30 minutes or so but is well worth it.

Tourism Opportunities

There are not very many stores to stop at but it is not a long ride so you should be fine. There are a number of public use areas and a state park along the way: Hugh White State Park, Wolf Creek public use, Carver Point State Park, North Greysport public use area, Choctaw public use area, Skuna Turkey Creak public use area.

Motorcycle Road Additional info

Once you get to Hwy. 7 follow it to some other great riding spots.

A friend and I took a ride out to the Grenada Lake Loop today. We live in Columbus, MS, so it was about 1.5 hours just to get to the loop itself. Once we got there we were not disappointed. The 44 miles of this loop have a little bit of everything, both good and bad. There are long straights with gorgeous views of the lake. There are hilly, twisty, immaculately clean miles that make getting on the throttle much more exciting. There are also some dirty parts; gravel, dirt and dust marred some of the best turns of the trek. And like any Mississippi road there are sections of flat, boring, two-lane monotony. BUT, when it's good, it's very good. I don't think we'll be making the 1.5 hour ride out to Grenada again any time soon, but if you're at all close by then it's totally worth it. We had a blast. Thank you mhiggs84 for posting!
