Hitchcock Nature Center
Join us Tuesday, August 15th for the fourth hike in the 2017 Hitch Hike series. Meet up with the group at the Old Lincoln Highway Deck at the Hitchcock Nature Center Campgrounds to begin this walk down the Hohneke Trail to Oak Avenue and the Bunker Hill Loop. Explore the northern section of the park & view a remnant of the original Old Lincoln Highway.
The public is invited to attend all the hikes in this series. They are designed to introduce visitors to Hitchcock Nature Center as well as the Loess Hills. The series begins with a moderate level hike and will get progressively more challenging as we build up to a 2.5 mile difficult hike in September. Water bottles, bug spray, & sunblock are all recommended, please dress for the weather and wear appropriate footware.
Well behaved dogs are welcome to accompany their owners but must be leashed at all times, you must pick up and remove their waste, and you may be asked to remain toward the tail end of the group if we have a large number of participants. This is an educational program, disruptive pets may be asked to leave the group.
Pre-registration is not required for this event. There is no fee for this event, free will donations will be accepted to support continued programming opportunities in Pottawattamie County. Participants must have a valid Pottawattamie County Park permit or purchase a $2.00 per vehicle daily entrance pass. Daily passes may be purchased with cash or check at the front entrance the day of the event. Annual permits may be purchased for $10.00 from staff at any of our parks or at the Loess Hills Lodge at Hitchcock Nature Center during regular business hours.
