I was on a bus tour of the area. Such a beautiful part of Iowa. Also visited the Loess Hills Lavender Farm along with the Sawmill Hollow organic farm which produces organic aronia berries. We were given several different samples of aronia items which were delicious. Never heard of those berries. We also had the option of buying their reasonably... More

I had driven by the hills on a few visits to Omaha, but decided to drive through them after my conference ended and I had some time to kill. What a nice scenic and relaxing drive! I was trying to reach a particular destination, and when I missed it, I simply followed the signs for the scenic byway and caught... More

We stopped at the visitor center of the Loess hills on our way to Fremont NE. We were the only ones there at the time. The lady in charge of the center was from the area so was very informative. The displays were very well done and explained the formation of the hills. Very glad we stopped.

We were driving in western Iowa on the Lincoln highway and saw the visitor center and in a split secon decision thought we would stop. Lots of information about Iowa travel and snacks, drinks and a back area with all sorts of historic farming equipment. Much better to stop here than a gas station to use the facilities and learn...

We decided to go on a road trip to western Iowa's Loess Hills. We are fellow Iowans from eastern Iowa and had heard about the Loess Hills, but had never actually seen them. What a beautiful treat, several times we remarked we needed to pinch ourselves and ask "are we still in Iowa"? Just a beautiful part of our beautiful... More

I have never hiked this part of Iowa but let me tell you, it was well worth the wait! The hills and surrounding are of the Loess Hills look like they are all folded or crinkled over. Think a giant Shar-pei dog and you see what I mean. The way the land formations are folded are just downright awesome/unique. Although... More

There is no better way to spend a Sunday afternoon then driving the Loess Hills road. We pick it up on the north end in Sioux City and it takes you right in to council bluffs. From there it's a short hop over the river to Omahas old market and some of the best restaurants anywhere. The drive is packed... More

The Loess Hills area in western Iowa is a beautiful place and a unique geological formation. I think it is especially gorgeous in the fall, but good for hiking (or cross country skiing) in any season. If you want peace and beauty, this is it.

Great Scenery on a not too long ride. You almost forget your in Iowa.Especially in the fall when the leaves are turning colors. Lots of places to stop and just enjoy the view and serenity of your surroundings.
