Update

A very easy ride through cottonwoods and prairie grass along the Missouri River.

Joe Heff

Overview

The loop starts at the Adams Homestead and is broken into two main loop trails. The Lake Loop is about 2.5 miles and the River Loop about 5.0 miles for a total of 7.5 miles with a short section on the Cottonwood Crossing and back to the trailhead for a total figure-eight around nine miles total with the option to continue looping for longer distances.
Family Friendly: The compacted and wide limestone trail make this a great family ride for all ages.
Dogs: Leashed

Description

This ride heads out on a very easy compacted limestone trail. The average overall trail width is eight feet, and slope ranges from 1-3 percent, manageable for most. Due to the terrain created by river terraces, several small sections increase to 6-7 percent for very short distances.

There are no obstacles, hills, or features to worry about. I frequently stop on my way through the area on my way to Sioux Falls for a quick ride. It is located one mile off I-29 at exit 4 in North Sioux City, South Dakota. Follow the signs to the trailhead and parking area.

History & Background

Covering 1,500 acres along the Missouri River, this area was donated to the people of South Dakota in 1984 by Mary and Maud Adams, granddaughters of original homesteader Stephen Searls Adams. They envisioned the area as a place where people, particularly the youth, could enjoy the land and learn more about the natural world surrounding them. Mary and Maud wanted to give others a "place for inner renewal."
