Adventures for Lewis and Clark Recreation Area NTDGC

Disc Golf


Trail length:
1.20 miles
Whether in good shots or in actual birds, it's always good to see as many "Birdies" as possible during your round of disc golf. The "Birdies" scorecard/field-guide was designed to help players identify some of the more common birds found here. How many "Birdies" will you see during your round today?
Disc Golf

Tree Love

Trail length:
1.50 miles
When disc golfers hit a tree with their disc and get a favorable bounce, they call that “Tree Love.” Use the pictures on this scorecard to identify a few of the trees found here. Every time you hit a tree with your frisbee, take a second to try to identify it. Look at its bark, leaf shape and other identifying features. Soon, identifying trees will be as easy as making a five foot putt.
