Waubonsie State Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The southernmost protected area in Iowa’s Loess Hills, Waubonsie actually serves as a refuge. To be found here are typical southern and western plants, butterflies, birds, mammals, and reptiles, many of which are listed in Iowa as rare, threatened, or endangered species.

Seven miles of trails in the hiking unit and 8.0 miles in the equestrian unit wind up steep ridges, through mature woodlands, and onto ridgetop prairie remnants. They can be enjoyed in an intense hike or a mellow stroll. For naturalists who visit Waubonsie, binoculars and the appropriate field guides are absolute necessities."
