Hartman Reserve Nature Center Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Walk through 300 acres of manicured wilderness in the middle of the Cedar Falls/Waterloo metropolitan area. You’ll cross over bridges and hike beside archaeological digs within this Watchable Wildlife Site. Originally a fifty-six-acre YMCA camp purchased with $4,000 in 1938 by John C. Harman and others, the Hartman Reserve Nature Center, acquired and expanded by
Black Hawk County, is one of the most unique urban parks in the country.

The county’s largest tract of undisturbed upland forest protects century-old white, red, and bur oaks and rare flowers like yellow lady’s slippers (a native orchid) and delicate candy-cane-shaped Indian pipes, also known as the ghost flower."
