Hickory Hill Park Hike

by Jim and Melanie

This morning we hiked in Hickory Hill Park within Iowa City. It is surrounded by residential properties. There are thick stands of old growth hickory, walnut, oak, locust, maple, ash, and others. We met a few other hikers with their dogs and one runner. We had the park mostly to ourselves.

The weather was great today. This morning dawned with a temperature of 54˚. Three days ago the high was 101˚. What a difference a cool front makes. Thank you, Canada. Still no rain.

      We enjoyed getting out! The sky is about as clear as can be. That helped while in the park — the trail map has no info on distances, so each time we came to a fork in the road, we had to guess on which way to go. But the sun always told us what direction we were headed!

      Thanks for stopping by.
