“Beautiful, green oasis”

Pilot Knob State Park
Attraction details
Reviewed July 7, 2013

The area is nestled among trees and shade important for a summer visit. There are walking trails and the tower built in the 1930s is a pleasant walk to beautiful scenic views.

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!

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.

Looking for a fun "day trip" Check out Pilot Knob State Park near Forest City, Iowa. Nice hiking and quite a nice view.
