  • If you are in Winterset, a visit to this park is worthwhile. It is well-maintained, has a hedge maze, an old log cabin, and a covered bridge (one of the six of Madison County).

  • The hike back to the tower is not too hard as long as you stay on one of the roads. I tried to take the hiking trail up and it had called trees all over it and the trail was impassable. I was able to walk around most of the obstructions,but it was not easy. As a note the long straight road at the bottom is the easier path as the winding road goes up and down while traversing back and forth. It is more scenic, but the straight road is far easier.
  • Fun hedge maze. Covered bridge full of ticks and hornets. Narrow, curvy, and long drive to tower. Well maintained park.
