My baby, toddler and I had a great hike today. I stuck to the "blue trails" in Fox Ridge which are indicated as easy. I was able to take my double jogging stroller on the path. My toddler loved talking about the plants, bugs, birds and views! We got to the end of the trail to the lookout point, only... 更多
Oh this place is so nice. Lots of trails to hike and explore. They have the tower to go up and look out. I'm afraid of heights but I did manage to go up there and look out. It was so pretty. Bring lunch and find a place to eat. Never disappoints
Located in the Loess Hills of Western Iowa, this nature center is great for kids of all ages. Nature programs, short hikes and plenty of wild life! We live in the area and we go a couple of times a year with family and friends, and daughter goes each year with her class from school!
Has cabins to rent if desired. Many trails to walk through the Loess Hills and great scenery. Can see many birds when hiking along the trails. Can be seen in different seasons too

Hitchcock is my go-to for backcountry camping. There are a handful of campsites to choose from; High point and Hueneme pond sites are my 2 favorites. Make sure to register at the trailhead to let others know what sites are available.

A forty foot tall tower provides excellent views for miles in every direction. The people manning the tower during migration are always willing to share their expertize as are the rangers and... 更多
A wonderful place for a hike in the Council Bluffs area. Also handicap accessible for walks. Great place for bird watching too. Various trails and a visitors center and observatory over looking the Missouri Valley where you can see lots of hawks and even Eagles, love it.
Hitchcock has many well maintained and well marked trails. There are miles of easy trails on which you will see families with kids, intermediate trails with some moderate climbs and advanced trails which have some tough up and down terrain. There is even a very long boardwalk trail through the woods, with rails, that even the youngest or oldest can... 更多
