There are not to many trails that wander though. Existing trails were made by cattle or game animals.
Regardless this area is off the beaten trail and is worth exploring! There are numerous species of wildflowers that are in bloom and there are some yellow ladys slipper in the natural area.
The partner than manages this area is Ducks Unlimited Canada.
