The short trail offers a short walk to a view of the Missouri River. The trail is accessed by crossing the Weston Bluffs Trail and the Burlington Northern Railway tracks. The trail ends at the river, with drop-offs along the way. The trail is in the floodplain and a good example of second-growth bottomland forest. A variety of wildlife is commonly seen, including migratory songbirds. The trail is natural surface, with occasional stones and tree roots. The area is subject to standing water in the roadway as well as occasional flood events.
