Red Bluff – The Grand Canyon of Mississippi

Red Bluff (also known as Mississippi’s Little Grand Canyon) is a geologic feature formed by natural erosion, located in Marion County, Mississippi. It was created by the natural erosion of the west bank of the Pearl River. Red Bluff is an exposure red clay, soil, sand, and other colorful sediments and rises to an elevation of approximately 400 feet above sea level. The bluff slopes sharply (200 feet) into a creek that feeds into the Pearl River. The natural erosion process continues and has forced the movement of nearby Ms Highway 587 at least two times.
