Hitchcock Nature Center reviews
Absolutely fabulous experience...very well kept and tidy nature preserve. Super amount of walking/hiking trails, ranging from easy to strenuous. Beautiful views of the Loess Hills. Very nice... more »
Nice drive along the scenic Lincoln highway to the Hitchcock Nature Center. Beautiful setting in the Loess Hills with camping, hiking, and an archery range. more »
Some really great hiking not even a half hour drive from Omaha. Great place to escape the city and spend some time in nature. Trails are all really well maintained and clearly marked. Staff and rangers are all very friendly and helpful. Dogs are allowed on leashes which is abnormal for most hiking in the area. Daily admission is super affordable at just $3 per day per car.
This is one of my favorite places to hike. I bring my husky here and she loves it. There are enough trails to keep anyone busy. My kids like going to the conservation center.
