Iowa often gets a bad reputation for being a flat, flyover state with little more than farms and cornfields, but those of us who call Iowa home know that’s absolutely not true. From remarkable lakes and rivers to sprawling forests full of wonder, Iowa is home to plenty of stunning natural beauty. The best way to experience said natural beauty is with an unforgettable hike, and we know just the place to take you. Lace up those hiking boots and get ready for a one-of-a-kind adventure.
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/
