Nice trail to hike. Many prairie plants and wonderful flowers to view as you walk.

Excellent if you're into prairies. Read on the internet the specifics of a prairie and you will increase your enjoyment of the trail. It is flat but that's what a prairie is! When the wind blows the grasses move like a wave of water. The interpretive center is very nice explaining things too.

Spring is best for the wildflowers but the birds will make it peaceful.

Nice park for a flat, prairie hike. They have a nice visitor's center. You can pretty much always see deer out in the late afternoon. They used to have a short, floating bridge which was fun, but I don't think they ever replaced it.
