Outstanding hiking close to the city.

Hitchcock Nature Center features 10 miles of trails in varying difficulties for all skill levels. Great training site with some fantastic campsites and excellent views. Nature Center offers a unique lodge and educational space with a "fire tower" regularly used for bird studies. Backcountry campsites are the main attraction but there are also RV sites and an archery range. The park even offers a small section of ADA boardwalk. It's a great place!

Excellent backwoods refuge.

If you're looking for a relaxing backcountry retreat for a little backpacking adventure then this is a great weekend option. Beginner to intermediate level trails that are good for the whole family. 340 acres with nearly 8 miles of trails to explore. Water options available. 8 backcountry campsites each with fire ring and picnic table. 1 shelter and privy available near main parking lot. Easy access to even more miles of trails in the remainder of the Loess Hills State Forest adjacent to the park.
