Waterloo State Recreation Area: Hickory Hills Trail Professional Review and Guide
"The longest of the Gerald E. Eddy Discovery Center trails, the aptly named Hickory Hills Trail passes through oak-hickory forests and remnants of an old golf course. The trail also covers some of the hilliest terrain in the state park and passes scenic Crooked Lake (a different lake from the one of the same name at Pinckney State Recreation Area). The balloon at the end of the trail serves as a nature trail. Its interpretive signs note varying aspects of the forest, including remnants of a domestic apple orchard, a dry marsh that was once a glacial lake, and current wildlife."
