Lime Creek Nature Center & Conservation Area

Biking at Lime Creek Nature Center & Conservation Area

A nine-mile network of trails dissects a 440-acre area of upland timber, open fields, restored prairie, flood-plain forest, and limestone bluffs.


Located off US Highway 65 just north of Mason City (3501 Lime Creek Road).


Visitors will enjoy an impressive variety of mounted animals on display in the center, along with several aquarium displays of reptiles, amphibians, and fish.  A complete exhibit renovation in 2019 provides numerous natural resource displays and "hands-on" learning opportunities for all ages.
