One of a handful of western Mississippi communities to salvage a benefit from the abandonment of a 50-mile railroad corridor between Cleveland and Hollandale in 1999, Hollandale railbanked the portion of the line through their small city to provide a paved trail for local residents. The corridor was originally built by the Yazoo and Mississippi Valley Railroad before being merged into the Illinois Central Railroad and ultimately ending up under the control of the Columbus and Greenville Railway.
The Hollandale Rail-Trail is a paved path running north to south between Morgan Avenue and Simmons Street in downtown Hollandale. Wooden benches provide resting spots along the trail, and a covered picnic pavilion offers a quiet place to eat at the trail’s southern end.
Other trails on the same former rail corridor to the north of Hollandale include the Shaw Rail-Trail, Boyle Rail-Trail, Cleveland's Crosstie Walk, the Renova Heritage Walking Trail, Shelby Trails and Duncan Walking Trail.
Parking for the Hollandale Rail-Trail is available at an unpaved parking lot on Simmons Street just north of W. Washington Street/State Route 12. Hollandale is located off US 61 southeast of Greenville, between Leland and Rolling Fork.
