You’ll Never Get Enough Of The River Views You Find Hiking Through Effigy Mounds National Monument In Iowa

Most Americans think Iowa’s a flat state with nothing but farms and cornfields, and we can’t really blame them! Every time Iowa’s on the TV or in a movie, our more rural counties seem to have starring roles. It might be a surprise to many that Iowa is actually home to rolling hills, staggering cliffs, and bluffs that seem to reach the sky. Enjoy some invigorating elevation gain and the best river views in Iowa when you visit Effigy Mounds National Monument.
