Description

This grassy/dirt trail starts from the parking area off 122nd Ave SE. From the back of the parking area, this trail heads west through bottomland hardwood forests, oak savannas, open prairie. It crosses a couple drainages before terminating at the state's only waterfall, and a nice backcountry camping site. Hikers will enjoy spectacular vistas up and down the Sheyenne River Valley and the trail also features two designated backcountry campsites (picnic tables, non-potable water, but no restrooms).
