Five Ridge Prairie

Trails & Hiking at Five Ridge Prairie

Mowed fire breaks offer a number of paths for hikers and cross country skiers alike. Sign posts with the exit to the parking lot are clearly marked throughout the fire break system. Spend an hour or all day hiking the unique landform the loess hills have provided. This is a very large, hilly park, so be sure you let someone know where you will be and when you will be back. Take a map along, and DO NOT cross any fences. Crossing a fence will take you out of our park boundaries and will make it much harder to rescue a lost hiker.


The Loess Hills are a very unique landform found in western Iowa. Five Ridge offers a great chance for visitors to experience the flora and fauna of the Loess Hills up close.
