Description
Waypoints (0)

Though the prairie will take years to fully develop, this easy and flat Prairie Trail leads visitors from the parking lot into what could become a birding hotspot in just a few years. Great place for wildflower viewing. Accessibility: This packed dirt, gravel, and mowed grass trail is estimated to typically be at least 4 feet wide. There is also a wooden boardwalk and wooden watchtower excursion, the watchtower is not wheelchair or stroller accessible while the boardwalk is. The slope of this route is estimated to usually be flat to gentle, around +/- 3% grade. There is one moderately steep section that reaches 6% grade (downhill). Trail goers using mobility equipment like a wheelchair or stroller may need some assistance here. There is 1 ADA-compliant car parking spot with an access aisle at the small paved trailhead lot.

Went for a hike in early March just after a major thaw. trails were only a little bit muddy. whenever you go here during the cold months you have to prepare for the wind!

We went on a rainy day, so it was extremely muddy and slippery. Was our last hike for the fall spree though!!

Great trail, but there is only one very short section with tree cover. I love hiking in the sun, but my dogs would have rather done this one in the evening or on a cloudy day.
