“This trail winds through woody draws down to the Missouri River valley.”— Karen Ryberg
Continue on the trail that winds through woody draws going to down the bluffs to the Missouri River valley. In the spring, you'll be greeted with plum, honeysuckle, and currant blossoms. Deer are frequently seen along the trail, as well as a variety of birds. The trail ends at the horse camping area in the southwest corner of the park but can be made a loop with the Bloody Knife's Loop East. The trail is open to hiking, horseback riding, and mountain biking.
