Trails

Self-Guided Prairie Trails

The 160-acre site features a main trail, which has two sections:

  • The short prairie trail is approximately 1/4 mile in length and follows a gravel path that starts at the visitor center and leads to the petroglyphs. The short trail is gravel and is wheelchair accessible.
  • The long prairie trail is approximately 3/4 mile and follows a mowed grassy path that starts at the end of the short trail then continues through beautiful prairie flowers and grasses, ending back at the visitor center. The long trail features a buffalo rub that is comprised of a huge piece of Sioux Quartzite rock, which has been rubbed to a polished finish and is smooth to the touch. The long trail is not wheelchair accessible.

The new Prairie Loop Trail offers unique plants, inspirational Native American quotes, and benches, and is pet-friendly. There are no petroglyphs on this trail. This trail is a mowed path on the rough prairie and is not wheelchair accessible.
