About Our 2023 Hitch Hike Series:
Hitch Hikes 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 more difficult and longer hikes in the fall. Whether you join us for one or all hikes in the series, you'll build a deeper connection to the natural world around you, learn to identify native plants and wildlife, and have fun!
Water bottles, bug spray, & sunblock are all recommended. Please dress for the weather & wear appropriate footwear.
