Well maintained trail with distance markers every .5 miles on the main loop, rolling hills, seasonal prairie scenery, two bathroom facilities, and a water fountain. With the spurs and grass cut throughs, this trail can be as long or short as you want.

I do not give it a 5 because, and I know it is a prairie restoration, there are no trees along the path. So, sunny summer days bake the trail and you.

This is a great prairie trail. Be sure to visit throughout the year to observe the change of seasons in this unique habitat. Wonderful place for birding, wildflowers, photography, walking, and bicycling.

I go here all the time. It;s really good for running or biking, and the prairie and sky always look beautiful. There are several off trails I go on and then return to the trail. Recommend very highly.
