Parts of Trails 3 and 4 occasionally flood. Use caution and do not cross flooded areas. Do not walk "off-trail" around flooded areas because there are many wetlands. If you encounter flooding, turn around. For up-to-date information about trail status, contact the park office.Show more

The trail meanders through the tallgrass prairie before entering a shaded path along scenic Harrison Creek. Wildflowers treat hikers to a display of color as the trail winds through a mixed deciduous forest, past a pond formed by Harrison Creek, and into the fen. The trail continues through a mature sycamore grove before merging with Trail 1 at the fen boardwalk north of the campground.Show more

This trail winds through a former Christmas tree plantation of Douglas fir and then snakes its way through tallgrass prairie, adjacent to the Prairie View group picnic area, with big bluestem, Indian grass, little bluestem, side oats grama, and black-eyed Susan. The trail continues into a fen and meanders through a marshy area, where you may get your feet wet, before entering a field being invaded by osage orange, wild cherry, mulberry, and multiflora rose.Show more
