Description

This portion of the Maah Daah Hey trail passes through flat open prairie grassland. There is almost no shade along the route and no water source. This trail when combined with the North Petrified Forest Trail and South Petrified Forest Trail forms a 10 mile petrified forest loop. There are some broken trail markers along the trail (the result of active wildlife), but the path is well traveled and easy to follow.

Flora & Fauna
