Hitchcock Nature Center Trails


Explore the Loess Hills along Hitchcock Nature Center's 10-mile trail system. The trails offer opportunities for birdwatching, snowshoeing, running, and backcountry camping. The trails link together so visitors can lengthen their hikes as long as they'd like and choose from looped or one-way options.
