A visit to Stone Park would not be complete without a visit to the Dorothy Pecaut Nature Center. The center features a variety of interpretive displays, including a "walk-under" prairie, a 400-gallon aquarium of native fish, and natural history dioramas. A children's discovery area provides opportunity to handle furs, antlers, fossils, and other artifacts. Two miles of hiking trails exist around the nature center. The hours are: Tues. - Saturday, 9a.m.-5p.m., Sunday, 1-5 p.m. Closed Mondays and Holidays. The center is managed by the Woodbury County Conservation Board.

Enjoyed a great, short run down beautiful forested trails. Lots of options though minimal trail maintenance creates a few adventures in trail negotiation. Saw lots of deer.

It was a moderate trail with logs that you have to walk over but pretty

I have hiked this trail system many times. Lots of variations and usually encounter 1-2 others while hiking. Many deer sightings and other wildlife.
Used these trails to train for the Appalachian trail in 2016 and it served me well.

Had knee replacement surgery a while back and finally able to get the kinks out. Challenging for me with the knee, but made it. Lots of trails to enjoy, and had two chipmunks playing in front of one of the benches I took a break on. They have a bird house with a red-tailed hawk and owl for getting up close. A couple of turkeys darted out, but was a nice hike. Definitely going to make it a habit. Trails are always open, but the center closes
