“A nature trail winding through cottonwood forest at the site of the reconstructed Fort Mandan.”— Karen Ryberg
The trail then winds through cottonwood forest with interpretive signs. It continues to the bank of the Missouri River then turns east, following the river. It passes a bronze statue of Seamen, Meriwether Lewis' dog on the Lewis and Clark Expedition. The trail continues along the river, then turns north onto the grounds of the reconstructed Fort Mandan. The trail turns west and goes to the visitor center. Continue across the road from the visitor center to a interpretive sign on the trail to complete the loop.
