Naturally Organically Roaming

Cow Trails created by those roaming cattle are nature's own way of showing us how herd animals over time have their own sixth sense. From cattle to deer, these animals create through our beautiful countryside pathways across hills, prairies, and crossing the rivers or streams. These animals' internalized satellite GPS would be marketed by Garmin and Mapquest if possible; who knows maybe that technology will be harnassed someday!

Deep Cut

The cow trails may be new to you but be assured that they are definitely NOT new. These paths will be narrow, cut deep from continuous use over time by cattle to horses to sheep to even deer that like water, naturally followed the path of least resilience! So the challenge is on, though you must always ask for permission if venturing on posted or private land, take on the Cow Trails of North Dakota, and experience what few have.
