Start in Wiggins Ms and head north on 29 till you reach Hwy 42 in Petal. Hwy 29 continues to Ellisville if you wish to continue on this route for another 20 miles.
This route travels through the heart of the Desoto National Park. Lots of nature and a few hills. This is not a heavily traveled road. It has some curves, but a beginner will be able to navigate this without a problem.
Lots of sweeping curves and all 2 lane. Once you get north of Hwy 98 you will see some log trucks, but south of 98 not much traffic. Pavement is very good.
Gas up in Wiggins, not many stores between here and Petal. Turn west on 42 and head into Petal to eat.
This one of the best rides in South Mississippi, Stops Available along route to enjoy beautiful Southern Pines througout year and Colors of Hardwoods in Fall. Food and Gas available in Wiggins, must try Whistlestop or Sawmill Restaurants. This ride can be lengthened by adding return trip via Hwy 98 and 63. Watch for Army vehicles near Camp Shelby, otherwise very low traffic.

This is a nice, calm route through some rural parts of MS. The only problem is a lot of truckers use this route, but there are plenty of spots to pass them.
