We love sharing our prairie spaces with you, and we want to continue offering community access as we responsibly balance the re-opening of our properties to private guest groups.
Starting in June, we will moved to a new Open Trail Day schedule of EVERY SUNDAY, 4-8PM.
We'll likely be making some updates to our check-in station and procedures as restrictions change, but you can always park by the Blue Sage Barn at 1484 Wildcat Creek Rd., and pick up a trail map from a staff person on site.
As the weather warms up, remember to bring water and bug spray with you, as needed. Remember to please leave pets at home.

There are multiple layers of involvement within the sport: player, manager/coach, umpire, scorekeeper or voracious fan. This exhibition contends with how each facet of the game is broken down into math and science.
