Description: Trails of a variety of distances and terrains will allow walkers to choose to trek to the Observation Deck that overlooks nearby Eagle Park with it impressive eagle's nest, use the boardwalk to journey into the tamarack bog, wander on grass trails along the edge of the forested area, or delve deep into the prairies where the beauty of the wildflowers, especially seeded in 2005 and 2007, will readily balance the challenge of the pleasantly rigorous "hike" on the way to the edge of the Sauk River. Scenic overlooks include eagle nest viewing areas and educational interpretative signs.
