Johnson Creek Greenway Trail Project The proposed Johnson Creek Greenway project runs from just South of the City of Horn Lake along Johnson Creek to the Mississippi River. The first phase will run from Baldwin Road to U S Highway 61 just North of Johnson Creek. This project is made possible with help from private citizens who are donating conservation easements and land to the North Mississippi Land Trust that will hold title to the property for the benefit of the Desoto County Mississippi Greenways program. This trail is part of the DeSoto County Greenways program which is establishing a greenway system that connects public and private open and green spaces throughout DeSoto County Mississippi while protecting, restoring and linking the natural features and their functions in order to achieve a healthy natural environment and ecological diversity.
