What just months ago was a thorny tangle of overgrown underbrush sprawled along the banks of Yankton's Marne Creek has been transformed into a safe, recreational connection to many community points of interest, like Riverside Park and Yankton High School Summit Activities Center.

What is now called the Auld-Brokaw Trail was a trail formed by a flood mitigation project through the Federal Emergency Management Agency. With federal funds, a trail was built that would allow access to Marne Creek for upkeep purposes, and the parts of the trail that are below certain elevation and likely to flood again were corrected.
