Located within the 423.1 acre Eisenhower State Park is a mini-bike area of 10 acres (ATVs allowed) and 4.5 miles of trails. The first 0.5 mile nature trail is signed for identifying items along the trail and is restricted to foot traffic. The remaining 4 miles (8 miles round-trip) is open to hikers and bikers (non-motorized). Of the 4 miles open to mountain bikes, about 2
miles would be for beginners, and the other 2 miles is rather challenging with steep grades and rock (intermediate).

Flora/Fauna: Grassy uplands, including rare remnants of the tall-grass prairie, terminate in rocky, shoreline bluffs and woodlands. A large variety of colorful wildflowers bloom throughout the growing season, March through November. Several wildflowers are identified by signs along the roadside in selected areas. A nature guide is available that identifies some of the trees along the trail. A wide variety of trees includes oak, ash, elm, cedar, dogwood, cottonwood, soapberry, locust, redbud, persimmon, and bois d'arc. A variety of mammals at the park include armadillo, bat, beaver, coyote, deer, fox, mink, nutria, opossum, rabbit, raccoon, skunk, and squirrel. Wintering bald eagles, pelicans, loons, and other waterfowl may be observed in the area. Nature/environmental programs are frequently scheduled throughout the year and upon special request with enough lead time.
