This gentle walk of approximately one mile will take you to the edge of the flooded prairie basin. Challenge yourself to identify birds, trees, and wildflowers, or just enjoy a peaceful stroll. If lucky, the sandhill cranes, bison, or wild horses may be seen. This walk is suitable for those who aren't ardent hikers but still want to have an outdoor Paynes Prairie experience. The pace is slow and comfortable and along the way we will stop and talk about what we see. Your guide will share Paynes Prairie history, including a tour of the old
Camp Ranchhorse barn. Bring your binoculars, field guides, and water. Be sure to wear sunscreen, closed toe shoes, and a hat or sunglasses.
