Description

The Lentzen Gazebo Trail is a trail on Cedar Point Biological Station property that has a nice view of the Ogallala Lake and the Western Nebraska prairie. The trail begins with a steep incline and some loose rocks. There is a gazebo halfway up the trail that can be used as a rest spot and an area to get a good view. The trail has a gate halfway through that should remain shut to keep the cows where they need to be. The trail continues until it hits a utility road.

Flora & Fauna

Flora: spiderwort, yucca, prickly pear cactus, redcedar trees, to name a few
Fauna: many small birds such as mourning doves, other birds such as turkey vultures and turkeys can be found, small lizards such as the prairie lizard and 6-lined racers, and the occasional snake can also be found
