Loess Hills Scenic Byway
Five Ridge Prairie (IA)
Located at the north end of the byway, the Five Ridge Prairie is one of Iowa's best unbroken prairie remnants. Since the area is largely undeveloped, visitors will be able to access it only through hiking trails as there are no roads. But the walk is worth it with a hike through the forested ravines between the Loess Hill Ridges. Catch a glimpse of the prairie as pioneers and native people would have seen it.
