We stopped in at Hawkeye Point while on a road trip from Florida to Alaska. Also stopped at several other high points. This one is quite nice. Besides a marker for the highest point, there are signs with direction and distance to other state's highest points, like Mt. McKinley in Alaska. There is an observation platform and a display of...

This was my third visit here. It's a landmark for me because I travel across interstate 90 fairly often Hawkeye Point is only a few miles south of Worthington, MN on HWY 60. The first time I stopped, there was barely a marker and it was really cool, like discovering something so unique that hardly anyone else knew about. The... More

Growing up in Sibley we would climb the Ocheyedan mound as the highest point in Iowa. Then this farm was found to be a tiny bit higher so our local FFA turned it into a park/point. It was a windy stop today, and also stinky(from nearby pigs). If you want a scenic hike, go over to the Ocheyedan mound.

Hawkeye Point is the highest natural point in Iowa, 1670 feet. A few buildings on the property offer brochures and some photo's of historic events in the area. I happened to meet Mike who was building a beautiful deck around the silo for a lookout platform. You can see 3 states from up there and also a lot of agriculture... More
