About Junction – Steel Earthworks
Junction Earthworks, is open to the public 365 days of the year from 9 am to sunset at no charge. The park features 2000 year old Native American earthworks, three nature trails providing over three miles of hiking, and a 70 acre native prairie providing spectacular summer wildflowers and rare grassland birds.Steel is in even better archaeological condition than Junction, with one of its circular enclosures still visible to our eyes. The one-mile long hiking trail along the abandoned railroad corridor to connect Steel with Junction is now open. The trail leads to the Steel Earthworks prairie loop trail which goes right by the intact circular mound, many hundreds of feet in diameter, and out to the views of the Paint Creek. The grand opening of Steel Earthworks is planned for 2019. In the meantime, you are welcome to visit!
