There are several parks and trails to explore in and near Minot during fall and all year long. Take your pick or walk through them all! For more information on parks, learn more HERE.

Woodland Trail takes you through a dirt-covered path that has floating bridges over the Souris River. You will feel like you’ve entered a new world as the sounds from the city are muffled by the trees. The trail takes about 35-40 mins to walk, with several different paths and shortcuts that you can take.

Oak Park, located along the beautiful Souris River, has several walking paths, and a driving lope. Dogs on a leash are welcome to walk through the park. Surround yourself with the many oak trees and get in touch with nature in the heart of Minot.

Bison Plant Trail is just on the outskirts of Minot along HWY 52. This trail allows for walking, biking, and during the winter cross country skiing. The trail is lengthy and takes just over an hour to complete on foot. Dogs are welcome on a leash.

Roosevelt Park has two main walking loops with a bridge crossing the Souris River. Bring a padlock and place it on the bridge with your significant other to show your love. The walk takes about a half hour, and you will see a statue of Theodore Roosevelt on a horse, who the park is named after.
