It can be nearly impossible trek if it has rain recently do to the gravel acting like quick sand. Taco ride is the bomb

If you are an ultrarunner, the hills at Hitchcock are great training for races that may have big elevation gains. Many Greater Omaha Area Trailrunners (GOATz group) regularly train here.

It was really nice. We camped overnight and went hiking the next day. Half of the campground was electric, half wasn't. Clean public restrooms. Everyone was friendly. Make sure to bring cash. We hiked to Point Ann, which was an eight mile round-trip hike, and it was beautiful and well kept and clearly marked. Make sure to stop in the nearby town of McGregor, it's adorable. Just avoid Latinos, their idea of Mexican food is awful.
