Hike over 40 miles of easy trails through 11,000 acres of gorgeous, unspoiled prairie with endless skies, colorful wildflowers, wildlife (including bison!), a forested creek, and a one-room schoolh

Hike 24/7 year-round. It's never crowded. May-Sept. is best for wildflowers and birds. Wild sunflowers bloom mid-Aug.-Sept. The grass is tallest Sept.-Nov., depending on rainfall. Winter is beautiful when it snows; bleak otherwise.

To me, the highlight of the area is the two-hundred-year-old tree (which is quickly on its way to being three-hundred).

Fall, because much of the brush will be thinned, you can climb down more easily to the riverbank to walk right along the river with fewer bugs.
