Take a Hike: Big Bend Wildlife Area

I really enjoyed exploring the Redfield area this summer. In addition to Redfield itself and Hanging Rock, I discovered Big Bend Wildlife Area, just a couple miles north of town. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect of this place, but was quite pleased with what I found. The trails are wide, mowed paths and encompass a large area. There were several trails to choose from and I think I managed to get to just about all of them. Lots of beautiful wildflowers dotted the landscape and a small pond in the southeast area had several ducks and what looked to be a turtle, but he splashed into the water before I could get close enough to know for sure. I’ll be back to walk these trails earlier next year when all of the flowers on the prairie are in full bloom!
