Adams Homestead and Nature Preserve

272 Westshore Drive

Spanning 1,500 acres along the Missouri River, this area was donated to the people of South Dakota in 1984 by Mary and Maud Adams, granddaughters of original homesteader Stephen Searl Adams. They envisioned the area as a place where people, particularly youth, could enjoy the land and learn more about the natural world surrounding them. Mary and Maud wanted to give others a "place for inner renewal."

Such a secluded and peaceful area for a walk with the dogs, a run, or a bike outing. I wish I would have taken advantage of this place more while I lived in the area. It's a bit of a jaunt to get here, but it is most definitely worth it. It combines grasslands and plains trails with wooded and river trails. Crushed gravel and dirt paths. I think this place is mostly a hidden gem most people never hear about, and they tend to miss out on.

really nice place to go on a hike, walk, run, I believe you can ride bikes I don't know if they change that but you used to be able to and it has some cool views and cool wildlife and it is a really long trail that goes out to the Missouri River
