The Overland Trails encourage outdoor recreation to help maintain an active and healthy lifestyle for all ages. Offering multiple different experiences and activities on the trails, the Trails allow you to create your own path. Head over to the westside and explore 24 miles of diverse reforestation areas or go east to journey along 19 miles of heavily wooded forests and soothing prairies. The choice for adventure is yours.
