  • The trail is fairly well marked out mosy places but quite easy to lose once it snakes through the prairie. I definitely recommend a GPS or good map incase you lose your way. If it is summer, be sure to bring extra water! The terrain is fairly flat with a few inclines scattered throughout. This is a great day hike with few travelers but ample wildlife to greet you along the way.
  • Cannonball Concretions and fantastic views.
