“A mellow jaunt through the forest and prairie at Great River Bluffs State Park.”— Kenny Slocum
Starting from the headquarters, a wide lane heading south for a few hundred feet eventually turns left; from there the trail is bordered by tall prairie grasses making it easy to follow the route, paralleling the road.
After a few tenths of a mile, the trail turns right and makes its way into the forest edge.
The main users of this trail system are cross country skiers, and numerous signs with directional arrows point out other trails, but most are not well maintained in the summer. Stay in the short grass, and eventually the trail will connect with the overlook area.
