Need to Know
Sometimes the trailhead sign can be a bit hidden from over grown bushes. Park near the yellow curve ahead sign on the side of the road.
This trail is found on The Nature Conservancy's Moses Coulee Preserve. It takes you on an open path through thick shrub-steppe, and leads to a riparian area below Dutch Henry Falls. It's a very easy half-mile hike on an out-and-back trail and provides stunning views of the Moses Coulee in every direction. In addition to the year-round beauty provided by the sagebrush and the basalt rocks of the intense coulee walls, one is likely to see wildflowers in bloom beginning in April.
While it is not too rocky, there are some larger rocks that stick out of the ground along the path. In summer, be cautious of snakes and ticks.
