“Trail circling a bison enclosure and paralleling the Minnesota River.”
— Ben Cavett
State Park, so pass is required ($5/day), but also gives you access to the falls nearby.
Need to Know
There is a restroom at the Mill.
The ground is uneven and has a lot of sandstone—thus sand mixed in the dirt—so it is a soft run.
This trail circles around the bison range and along the Minnesota River. It provides a great overlook of the river valley and leads you to the Seppmann Mill. The trail is mostly flat and gives a good impression of the prairie and bison range. The terrain is not too serious but can be very uneven and rocky/muddy/sandy in some spots. The cars that drive through have to give you respect for running around the enclosure.
Flora & Fauna
Where else will you see 100% purebred bison in Minnesota? Also, there are deer and prairie plants.
