If There Are Only 5 Hikes You Ever Do In Iowa, Make Them These

Summer is the time for hiking. It’s a great way to get out and truly appreciate the beauty of nature, and Iowa has a seemingly endless supply. We can’t imagine only taking five hikes, but here are some of our favorites.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
