It has one of the state’s premier archaeological sites containing significant artifacts from both Woodland and Mississippian Indian cultures, dating back to 1,000 AD.  A 1.8 mile hiking trail winds through fields of wildflowers and offers excellent views of the river valley and the animals living there.
