Trail circling a bison enclosure and paralleling the Minnesota River.

Ben Cavett

Features -none-

Need to Know

There is a restroom at the Mill.

Description

This trail circles around the bison range and along the Minnesota River. It provides a great overlook of the river valley and leads you to the Seppmann Mill. The trail is mostly flat and gives a good impression of the prairie and bison range. The terrain is not too serious but can be very uneven and rocky/muddy/sandy in some spots. The cars that drive through have to give you respect for hiking around the enclosure.

Flora & Fauna

Where else will you see 100% purebred bison in Minnesota? Also, there are deer and prairie plants.
