Leg of Historic Ft. Totten Trail Arrowwood NWR W of Kensal on SR 9
This development of this trail is to reestablish 9 miles of the historic trail that connected the military posts of Ft. Seward near Jamestown, ND and Ft. Totten on the south shores of Devil's Lake. The Jamestown/Stutsman Development Corporation has successfully competed for a grant to purchase and install 8 gates on the trail that can be opened and closed from horseback, and for a split-rail fence to be constructed at the south trail head.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service intends to develop the south trail head to accommodate parked vehicles and horse trailers, and to develop interpretive kiosks and trail markers. Interpretive kiosks will educate the visiting public about conservation and the wildlife mission of the Service, and will celebrate the American Indian tribes and culture that existed prior to European settlement. Development of the trail will better enable the Service to achieve their goal of providing quality wildlife-dependent recreational opportunities such as wildlife observation and wildlife photography.
