Mountain bikers share the land with cows, so keep your eyes peeled for pies.

Description

From the parking area, ride a hundred feet or so down a 2 track road and hang a left on the singletrack, you can't miss it. Follow the trail for roughly a mile and do the only water crossing on the trail. Hang a right up the hill at the only fork if you want to stay on the 5 mile loop, or hang a left at the fork if you want to tack on another 3 miles onto your ride.

Some of the turns are tight, but pretty tame for the most part, this is North Dakota, so there aren't any trees to run into.

the 3mi loop up the bluff was a great workout and once at the summit you really get a sense of the Native American spirit rooted in this country.

Great trail for beginners. Runs through wide open fields so no fear of trees! 3mi

I rode the trail in 15-25 mph winds. The wind was never a factor in my ride. I just put earplugs in to block out the noise.
