Hiking Fargo ND

If you’re interested in going for a hike but don’t want to drive too far out of town, Fargo and the surrounding areas have some great options for you.

  • Gooseberry Park Trail – According to most people in the Fargo-Moorhead area, this is the best hike around. At 3.5 miles, it offers plenty of scenery and beauty without forcing you to drive out of town. Enjoy wooded areas, open prairie, and even some turkeys, owls, and other big birds come winter.
  • M.B. Johnson Trail – Located in Moorhead, the M.B. Johnson Trail runs a little under 4 miles, and its easy terrain make it a great choice for families with small children or those trying to ease back into physical activities.
