Description

The Missouri River Trail offers a short hike to an outstanding view of the Missouri River. This trail is located in the floodplain of the Missouri River and is a good example of fairly common second-growth bottomland forest. The trail is accessed by crossing the Weston Bluffs Trail and the Burlington Northern Railway tracks. It ends at the Missouri River, and there are drop-offs at points along the trail. Many kinds of wildlife, including migratory songbirds, are commonly seen along the trail.

Caution should always be exercised in accessing this trail and the Missouri River. The trail surface is natural surface, with occasional stones and tree roots in the trail. The area is subject to standing water as well as occasional flood events from the Missouri River.
