Plant Identification Signs
In the past, plant signs have identified various plants along the trail, but they are absent this year. Nachusa is working to develop new signage and hopes to have them ready for 2022.
Common milkweed (Asclepias syriaca) can been seen along the trail.
The trail meanders close to the bison unit, so keep a look-out for the herd. Remember to keep a 100-foot distance from the herd at all times. If the bison are too close to the fence, you may need to turn around.
