Description

This is an easy, flat loop that takes one through the cottonwood forest along the Missouri River in Cross Ranch State Park. It can be accessed by taking the Interpretive Trail south from the main parking lot near the visitor center, then taking a short connector trail to the south. The west side of this loop is uplands with an opportunity to see some prairie grasses, flowers, and birds. The east side of the loop follows the Missouri River, where geese and ducks are commonly seen.

Flora & Fauna

White-tailed deer, pheasants, bald eagles, giant Canada goose, mallard ducks, cottonwood, ash, prairie grasses, birds, and flowers are all abundant in this area.
