Description

This trail connects the North Country Trail - Lake Sakakawea State Park and the Lakeshore Trail to form a loop and features an outstanding vista point with a bench. It's a great place to sit down and look out at the lake and watch wildlife.

Flora & Fauna

The gently rolling prairie, wooded draws and shelterbelts contribute food and a secure habitat for a diverse wildlife community. Visitors may see white-tailed deer, ring-necked pheasants, raccoons, jackrabbits, or perhaps a coyote or fox.
