Dogs Leashed

Features Birding · Wildlife

There are probably 6-7 days a year when the course is reserved for UI or local high school CC meets... other than that it's open all hours, year round

Runner Notes

You're likely to encounter a lot of dog walkers (many offleash), but it's not a sanctioned offleash dog area, and there's lots of visibility, so dog owners are usually pretty good about getting their animals in tow well before any encounter happens.

Description

This "trail" is basically a wide open prairie landscape, with a 2000 meter perimeter that is maintained, as well as some additional sections that are maintained and easy to navigate. There's a lot of liberty to get miles here however you want, from laps around the perimeter, to figure 8's. It's almost entirely exposed, so wear sun protection, or if you're working on your tan, wear very little. There are a few undulations, but it's mostly flat-ish grassy terrain.

Flora & Fauna

Prairie birds are relatively abundant in this area, and it is common to see a lot of meadowlarks and redwing blackbirds with raptors soaring above.
