Skillet Creek Indian Mounds Night Hike

Briggs Woods Park and Golf Course, Hamilton County

Saturday, November 2, 2019

Join us for a night hike to the Skillet Creek Indian Mounds as we walk through the fall leaves. Enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells of the night as we hike this moderate to difficult hiking path up the hillside. We will discuss the area history and observe the burial and ceremonial mounds on the hilltop. This is a joint program provided by Hamilton and Webster County Conservation Boards. 

This program is for all ages of people who enjoy hiking at night. Feel free to bring a flashlight as red covers will be provided. There is a limited number of flashlights provided to use. Register by email at or call 515-832-9570 to register. 

Skillet Creek is managed by the Webster County Conservation Board. To reach the area, follow Highway 175 west of Stratford about 4 miles. Just after crossing the bridge over the Des Moines River, turn right (north) onto River Road. Then turn onto Skillet Creek Road (left at the Y intersection). Just beyond the first curve will be a parking lot on the right side of the road. The area is signed from Highway 175 at the end of the bridge.
