In this week’s Motor Mountain USA (#MMUSA) episode, the destination is the summit of the Woodall Mountain in Mississippi, which has a peak elevation of 806 feet. This is the highest natural point in the state of Mississippi and the road leading up to the peak is all dirt — just the way we like it.
Originally known as Yow Hill, this peak was re-christened Woodall Mountain in 1878 after Zephaniah Woodall, who was the sheriff of Tishomingo County. Today’s visitors to Tishomingo State Park discover the same timeless natural beauty that hasn’t lost its charm over the centuries. Tishomingo offers a unique landscape of massive rock formations and fern-filled crevices found nowhere else in Mississippi.
This trip is also about involving you in the adventure. TFLcar has commissioned 50 commemorative silver belt buckles, one for each state. We will leave a belt buckle somewhere in the state and tell you the GPS coordinates so you can find it. The first person to find it keeps it. In return, we ask you to send us a picture of yourself with the belt buckle. You can tweet to us @TFLcar, Facebook us at TFLcar, use the #MMUSA, or #MotorMountainUSA hashtag, email email@example.com, or all of the above.
One of the best ways of experiencing America first hand is hitting the open road with the windows down and top off in a 2015 Jeep Rubicon Wrangler Rubicon Hard Rock. The Motor Mountain USA (#MMUSA) team embarks upon an epic road trip by visiting the highest drivable roads of every state in the USA. Along the way, Nathan, Roman, Andre and Emme will visit locales less traveled and uniquely American attractions that make the United States one of the world’s favorite tourist destinations.
