Description

Added by Rachael Westergard

Moderate hike that runs through scenic forests and prairie.

Five Ridge Prairie State Preserve is located in Westfield, Iowa. The trail winds through both wooded areas and open prairie. It spans 4.8 miles and is mainly used for hiking and running. It is free to park at, though to get here, you'll have to drive a gravel road. 

The trail has slopes and flat areas, making it an intermediate hike. There are beautiful flowers along the trail, so keep your eyes out! Bring your bug spray too, because this trail can get pretty buggy in the summer time.
