Woodland Trail
The woodland trail and its overlooks provide a different kind of garden experience. Meandering through a century-old forest of bur oak, trail hikers enjoy the serenity of this wooded area while observing the native plant community that has long existed on our riverside Loess Hills. In addition to bur oak, the trail winds past American hop hornbeam, gooseberry, Kentucky coffee tree and shagbark hickory. Poison ivy is also found in this area, so please be careful.

The experience culminates with amazing views to the north and south, up and down the Missouri River Valley. Interpretive information along the trail provides guidance and explains what is being seen. The hearty hiker of our woodland trail experiences nearly ten acres of this unique plant community. This trail is two-thirds of a mile long, much of which is uphill. Benches are provided along the way for rest and reflection.
