  • Nice and friendly staffs. Kids under 10 will like the facility. Need some updates for displays but generally acceptable.
  • We really enjoyed our hikes. Very nice area with interesting trails and views.
  • What a place!You could scarcely believe formations like these exist in Iowa.Can't wait to come back again.
  • Awesome place to take a hike, see some history, and learn about natural resources. The visitors center is a great place for kids and I highly recommend stopping there. Beautiful trails!
  • Extensive trails, Historic Dubuque monuments and access to Mines of Spain. Trailheads are confusing to find since the Nature Center was expanded, just wander around the building to find the old entrances.
