Good Earth State Park is an important cultural and historical site with abundant wildlife and scenic overlooks. Good Earth at Blood Run is a National Historic Landmark. The visitor center is known for interpretive programming, the “Peace” statue, and a museum with custom painted wall murals. The site itself is one of the oldest sites of long-term human habitation in the United States as a significant trading center for many tribal peoples from 1300-1700 A.D.


The Vista Loop is an easy, just over 1-mile loop with a wide gravel and dirt trail with great views from the lookout decks. Comfortable shoes, bug spray, and water is recommended. Parking available at the Good Earth State Park visitor center. Meet in the visitor center’s lobby (we will leave from the back doors of the visitor center for the hike)
