Wild West Ramble Ride

Wild West Ramble Ride Professional Review and Guide

"This ride takes you on a tour of an area where Indians were once on the warpath and bison and elk roamed freely. There weren’t any cowboys dressed in white or black, just eager settlers trying to establish a new life on the prairies. The ride leaves from Jackson on a route that meanders along the fertile tree-lined valley of the Des Moines River to a village named in honor of a Methodist minister.

Venturing to the southwest to Spirit Lake, on the Iowa border, you will ride past a site where a settlement once stood. Here is where Scarlet Point and his band of Dakota warriors started their killing spree, an area now home to many prairie birds. The ride circles to the north up around Clear Lake before returning to a village once known as Springfield."
