“A lollipop loop through open prairie and marsh”— Eric Ashley
On the other side of Prairie Creek, a mown path meanders deeper into the prairie giving visitors a glimpse into a tallgrass landscape that once dominated the area. As you near areas of standing water, be on the lookout for birds and wildlife.
The trail eventually splits to form a lollipop loop that brings visitors near the park boundary before returning back to the south and reaching the stretch of trail on which they arrived.
Shade is almost non-existent, so come prepared with plenty of water and sunscreen on warm and sunny days. Long pants and sturdy footwear are recommended.
