The Adams Homestead TRACK Trail follows the Lake Loop, a fully-accessible multi-use trail. The Lake Loop is 3.8 miles round-trip, travelling through woodlands and open fields.
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."
