“A mix of single and doubletrack that is a great place for beginners.”— Andy Cramb
The middle of the hike is open fields with a few views of the water from a distance. These areas are mowed and well-maintained, but there's not always a tread.
The northern section of the hike shares a path with a disc gold course. Be sure to look out for players as you hike the trail. Unfortunately, the main trail has not been maintained past the course. Use caution when picking a line through many large fallen trees, piles of driftwood and tall prairie grass. You may have to slow down on a few sections if you choose to continue past mile four.
There are numerous trails back to the main paved road that can be used for a bail-out if needed. Bring plenty of water as there are no water facilities past the middle section.
