“Explore the open grassland near the park's cavalry post.”
— Karen Ryberg
Features: Birding — Wildflowers — Wildlife
The trail can be accessed from the south near the horse camping area in the southwest corner of the park or from the north using Bloody Knife's Loop
. This trail takes one through the open, flatter grassland area between the partially reconstructed cavalry post and the Missouri River bluffs to the west. This is the least strenuous of the park's running trails and is open to running, horseback riding, and mountain biking.
Flora & Fauna
White-tailed deer, bluebirds (boxes visible to the west of the trail), pheasants, other birds, prairie grasses, and wildflowers.
