Take a guided hike through the Loess Hills to learn more about the plants, animals and history of the prairie. Join us for the second hike in the Hitch Hike series. Take a closer look at some of Hitchcock's best prairie remnants as you are guided through Badger Ridge Trail. Discover purple coneflower and other early summer wildflowers and witness what the hills may have looked like when Lewis and Clark passed through the area.
We invite the public to attend all of the hikes in the series. They are designed to introduce visitors to Hitchcock Nature Center as well as the Loess Hills. The series will start with a more moderate trail and we will work our way towards a healthy, invigorating 2.5 mile hike to the most western edge of the preserve at the series' end. Bring your water bottle and join us in the fun! Cost is $2 per person. Weather permitting.
