The Dakota Dunes Trail is a paved trail for cyclists and pedestrians that runs through the unincorporated community of Dakota Dunes, south of North Sioux City in the southeastern corner of South Dakota. The trail runs through flat and open fields that border Interstate 29 and then the Big Sioux River, before heading into The Point Nature Preserve in the east - this wooded stretch of land offers trail users the rare opportunity to travel to the point where three states meet, as the pathway brings you right near the Big Sioux Bend, the confluence of the Big Sioux and Missouri Rivers and the place where the borders of Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota all meet.
The northwestern part of the trail lacks the scenic remove of the riverfront segment, but does help to connect neighborhoods within the community of Dakota Dunes, and provides convenient access to the neighborhood Prairie Boulevard Park. Due to its proximity to the riverbank, the eastern portion of the trail is susceptible to flooding, so be sure to check with the local trail manager for up-to-date conditions.
Parking is available along the trail at Prairie Boulevard Park, located at 510 Prairie Boulevard in North Sioux City. The trail can easily be reached by heading west off of exit 1 on Interstate 29 in South Dakota.
You walk/ride to the southeast corner of South Dakota. During the walk you will see Iowa on the other side of the Big Sioux River and Nebraska on the other side of the Missouri River. Walk this a few times a week, see deer, very well maintained, shale covered.
