Wildcat Den State Park Professional Review and Guide
"This hike has it all: green woodlands, meandering streams, a slot canyon, and the chance to explore around the next corner. It is also a link within the Great River Birding Trail and the American Discovery Trail.
Near the Mississippi River, this historic park is part of the
American Discovery Trail and the Audubon’s Great River Birding Trail. With golden bluffs, steep terrain, historic buildings, a river and mill, and unexpected seclusion, this must have been what Iowa was like when settlers first arrived. On our visit, we met one of Iowa’s great naturalists recording bird calls without the noise of a distant highway."
