“Run through Valley City on the North Country Trail, enjoy some great views, and cross the Sheyenne River three times!”— Matthew Davis
The trail starts at the Medicine Wheel Park which features a replica of a medicine wheel (solar calendar) and a to-scale running tour of the solar system. For more info, visit medicinewheel.vcsu.edu/. The trail segment continues north past the Rosebud Visitor Center—a great spot for learning more about the area's history (see ndtourism.com/valley-city/f…)—and through downtown to the north edge of Valley City past the Hi-Line bridge. The trail also continues west and then south through the Valley City State University campus to I-94 and then along CR-21 (Kathryn Road) paralleling the Sheyenne River. Note: there is no designated parking south/west of the Medicine Wheel Park.
