Visitors can enjoy a hiking area at the southern end of the J. Clark Salyer NWR. The Sandhills Walk is an unmarked trail where visitors can explore trees, shrubs, wildflowers, and wildlife. The blue three-petaled spiderwort and prairie wild rose, state flower of North Dakota, are common. The tiny ball cactus can be seen if you look closely at the ground. Watch out for poison ivy; this three-leaved creeping plant is found mainly beneath trees and shrubs.

Please refer to our Scenic Trail Brochure or contact our office for more information about the location of the trail.

Remember to bring a pair of binoculars, a variety of field guides, and some water. Enjoy your hike!
