Along the west right-of-way boundary of the Red River Valley & Western Railroad which is defined by fence(s). NCTA volunteers clear, blaze and maintain the path of the North Country Trail in this area. The terrain may be rough with heavy grass and brush, especially if you deviate from the cleared path. Since the soil is very sandy, the watertable varies with the seasons and wet & dry cycles, so be prepared to get your feet wet in places during some times of some years. Gravel roads in this area may be very wet, soft and unpassable - use caution. The best method of approach is via the North County National Scenic Trail
