Fergus Falls features a 10-mile segment of the North Country National Scenic Trail—a footpath that extends 4,600 miles from the East Coast through North Dakota. The Trail offers scenic family-friendly hiking opportunities through prairies, woodlands, and neighborhoods. Popular locations to access the Trail from Fergus Falls include Red Sox Park, One Mile Prairie, Delagoon Park, Prairie Wetlands Learning Center, and Veteran’s Park. The NCT can also be accessed at Maplewood State Park east of Pelican Rapids.
