Oahe Dam Downstream Fort Pierre Trail Description

The Oahe Dam Downstream Fort Pierre Trail begins at Oahe Downstream Recreation Area, a state park located under the Oahe Dam on the Missouri River. The park is known for its bald eagles and butterflies, and is a popular place for camping, boating, and fishing. Most of the trail passes through farmland and prairie. The trail ends on the outskirts of Fort Pierre. The Riverfront Trail which starts a few blocks east, allows bicyclists to cross the Missouri River into Pierre.
