Runner Notes

Some of the low-lying areas are often partially submerged, though rarely impassable. Be prepared for the possibility of getting slightly wet and/or muddy. There's a water pump with potable water at the Bluestem shelter/parking area.

Description

This trail begins at the Bluestem Shelter in the MacBride Nature Recreation Area (MNRA). It skirts the prairie immediately to the west before entering the woods and traversing some lowlying area, before climbing up to the Fox Campsite parking lot

Flora & Fauna

Lots of deer, small mammals, and I've seen coyote on this trail. There are plentiful wildflowers and some edible berries like black caps.
