  • Our new favorite walking/hiking destination! Just outside of Crescent, IA, it's a quick drive from the city. Also a year pass is only $10! We were previously members of Fontenelle Forest, which is a wonderful place but quite a bit more for a membership. Hitchcock has great trails, a boardwalk path that anyone can enjoy regardless of mobility/stamina. Gorgeous views and oh so peaceful. There's also plenty of picnic spots and a playground.
  • Great place to unwind and enjoy nature. Incredible views from the tower. You can spend all day walking and enjoying the sights. Close to Omaha and Council Bluff.
  • Went here to get out of Omaha. Spent 2$ to try it out the first time, then bought a 10$ yearly pass from the date of purchase. We've been back many times now, and can't wait to try all the trails!
  • Beautiful place to visit. Nice hiking trail and a wonderful wildlife exhibit with beautiful vistas from a viewing tower.
  • They have a ery nice nature center with friendly people to answer questions. Watch their schedule for fun and informative programs and events for kids and adults.
