Explore the most popular trails in Adams Homestead and Nature Preserve with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Spanning 1,500 acres along the Missouri River, this area was donated to the people of South Dakota in 1984 by Mary and Maud Adams, granddaughters of original homesteader Stephen Searl Adams. They envisioned the area as a place where people, particularly youth, could enjoy the land and learn more about the natural world surrounding them. Mary and Maud wanted to give others a "place for inner renewal."

Nice mix of gravel, grass, paved, and woodland trails.

Took our young kids on the trails and they walked 4 miles! Very easy walk. Took Mary’s Avenue and saw a lot of deer. Was amazing! Plus they have the coolest playground for the kids I’ve ever seen! Will definitely be back!

This place is great! going back soon.

We walked and rode bikes on this trail and we were amazed at the diversity in this reserve. The wild flowers at the beginning set the tone and the river walk was a perfect stroll through the flatlands of the area. Lots of deer and wild turkeys but sadly, the bison have been temporarily moved to greener pastures.
