“Beautiful fall vista”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

I love the 360 views from the top. It is also fun to take the paths that are available. It is goregous in the fall with the variety of color available. Definitey a beautiful photo op!

“A nice park”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

We didn't spend a lot of time here, mostly went to see the tower, which was fun. It is nice sized for walking, running, hiking.

“Intense cross-country ski workout on hiking trails”
Reviewed January 22, 2012

The hiking trails with gentle slopes are available all winter for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. I love beauty of the three bridges trail to the amphitheater. The sight from the tower (second highest point in Iowa) is spectacular on a clear day; however be careful coming down the trail on skis. If you are lucky, you'll see white-tailed deer and wild turkeys.
