From this point, you may see or hear the numerous waterfowl that use the marsh at the base of the hills this time of year. Continuing down the trail, you will come to the Oneota site known as the Old Fort. The trail then loops back around back to the starting location. Earthworks Trail takes approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes to complete and is 1.25 miles long.
