Join us Tuesday, July 19th at 7:00 p.m. for the third hike of the 2022 Hitch Hike series! Hike out and back Fox Run Ridge while taking in the stunning views of the Missouri River valley and beautiful prairie. Fun fact: The valley seen off Fox Run Ridge is known as Bulldozer Valley and was partially created by bulldozers when a previous landowner cut down 40 acres of trees there while going through a legal battle to turn the park into a dump.

Pre-registration is not required for this event, although free-will donations will be gratefully accepted and used to fund additional free and 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. To purchase your Pottawattamie Conservation Foundation Membership online please visit www.pottawattamieconservationfoundation.com.

Weather permitting. Please meet us at the Loess Hills Lodge.

Pets: Well-behaved dogs are permitted to accompany their owners but must be leashed at all times. Please be sure to pick up and properly dispose of all pet waste throughout the hike and anytime you venture with your pup. Please note: You may be asked to remain toward the end of the group if there is a large number of participants and disruptive pets may be asked to leave the group.

About Our 2022 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 a 3+ mile difficult hike in September. 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.

2022 programming is sponsored by the Pottawattamie Conservation Foundation.
