Description

This trail winds along a portion of the Little Missouri River, a designated wild and scenic river. Cascading waterfalls, stately hardwoods, old-growth pine stands, wildlife, and seasonal leaf colors are just a few of the natural delights awaiting runners. One of the most scenic areas, the Winding Stairs area, offers breathtaking views of the forest, river, and large novaculite rock outcrops.

This trail is fairly level with a few steep inclines. It crosses the Little Missouri River eight times and Crooked, Brier, Long, and Blaylock creeks once. Runers should be careful when crossing streams. Rocks in streams can be slick and high water is dangerous after rain storms.

Flora & Fauna

Keep your eyes open for black bears, river otters, and white-tail deer.
