Description

Harpst Trail is a relatively short loop trail but it can be a fairly strenuous run in some portions. The trail offers a journey through a portion of the mature river hills woods that were once common along the Missouri River in northwest Missouri. Signs along the trail provide information on the park’s role as an Important Birding Area and list birds common to the park. The entire trail is a natural soil base and portions may be covered with leaves. Tree roots and exposed rocks are common in the trail bed.

White Connector 1 (0.20 miles) links the West Ridge and Harpst trails to Weston Bluffs Trail. The connector takes runners from the scenic bluffs above the Missouri River on the West Ridge/Harpst trails down to Weston Bluffs Trail that follows the park’s western border and parallels the Missouri River and the Burlington Northern Railway.
