Bring home a box for family or friends and you’ll be a hit!

Where can I find a kid-friendly hike in North Dakota?

You're in luck because there are numerous kid-friendly hikes dotted all over North Dakota. Some of them are short and sweet as well, which makes it great for their adult counterparts who maybe don't want to hike very far or have some mobility issues. Among them are the Wind Canyon Trail in Theodore Roosevelt National Park, the Little Twig Nature Trail in Fort Ransom State Park, and the Prairie Nature Trail in Lewis and Clark State Park, just to name a few.

Can you suggest a road trip itinerary in North Dakota?

Absolutely! If you enjoy exciting road trip adventures, you might like this one which takes you to five of the least-visited state parks in the state. Those on this itinerary are Beaver Lake State Park, Little Missouri State Park, Lewis and Clark State Park, Grahams Island State Park, and Sully Creek State Park. Despite their anonymity, they really are wonderful and offer their own unique beauty and settings. But the best part might be that you will experience much smaller crowds than you would in the bigger state parks. Enjoy the journey!
