Hitchcock Nature Center

27792 Ski Hill Loop
Honey Creek, IA 51542


Hitchcock Nature Center offers ample opportunity for hiking, birdwatching, snow shoeing, cross country skiing and other endeavors on its 10 mile trail system. The trails are not open to bikes, horses, or ATVs (though you may encounter staff on an ATV or tractor from time to time). The trails network together so visitors can be creative to enjoy any length of hike they desire. Due to the rugged terrain of the Loess Hills, the trails vary from easy ridgeline walks to difficult climbs. Spend a little time studying the trail map to choose your route, and consider bringing drinking water. We suggest insect repellant during the summer months.
