North Ridge Trail offers great views of the Missouri River valley, including remnants of an old farmstead. The trip out on the trail can be strenuous because of the steep grade and sections can be quite slippery when the trail is wet. A cell phone tour is available for this trail with stops at an 1830s barrel vault cellar, a 1900s corn picker and an 1880s Missouri River survey marker. The trail ends near private property; please be respectful of the private property. This trail has a natural soil surface with numerous exposed tree roots and rocks. This is a two-mile hike.
Hike time: 10 a.m.
Meeting location: North Ridge/Bluff Trail parking lot at the west end of the park (end of park road)
