Adams Trail - Trail, McCook Lake, Dakota


The trail consists of crushed limestone and is fairly flat and about 6' wide. It winds through huge stands of cotton wood trees along the Missouri River and loops through a forest of trees along an oxbow lake. The trail has many curves with great views of the Missouri River but only a few small climbs.

Since this trail consists of crushed rock and is farily flat, you could easily do this trail with any type of recreational bike. However, this trail is a hidden gem. It loops through huge stands of cottonwoods and praire grass and offers scenic views of the Missouri River. It's a fun trail to ride fast and a great ride for the entire family (my 7 yr. old daughter loves it). If you watch carefully you will see much wildlife (deer, turkey, waterfowl and ocassionally bald-eagles). Although this is not a technically demanding trail (it's eastern So. Dakota remember), I highly recommend interstate travlers stop by and check it out. It is hardly used and Sioux City, IA is only about 5 miles to the South. I gave it a great rating because we don't have too many trails around here and I love the area.

The trail is flat, fast and full of curves.
It winds through beautiful river bottoms.
You will rarely see other users (except on weekends).
The fall colors are spectacular.
