Join us Tuesday, July 20th at 7:00 p.m. for the third hike of the 2021 Hitch Hike series. Hike out Fox Run Ridge to take in the stunning views of the Missouri River valley, beautiful prairie & pasture land and catch a glimpse of our research plots.
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 3+ mile difficult hike in September. Water bottles, bug spray, & sunblock are all recommended, please dress for the weather & wear appropriate footwear.
Well behaved dogs are permitted to accompany their owners but must be leashed at all times, you must pick up and remove their waster, and you may be asked to remain toward the end of the group if there is a large number of participants. This is an educational program, disruptive pets may be asked to leave the group.
Due to COVID-19 the format of this program may be adjusted. Please check back for updates.
Pre-registration is not required for this event, free will donations will be gratefully accepted & used to fund additional free & low cost public programming at your county parks.
Participants must purchase a $5.00 per vehicle daily pass with exact change or check at the front gate paybox, or have a valid Pottawattamie Conservation Membership to enter the park.
