I try to hike here at least once per month and I've camped here with both friends and family multiple times. The all trails description says a 4 mile trail but there are many miles of connecting trails within Hitchcock. You can hike well beyond 4 miles. Some trails have some steep inclines, the map is well marked and easy to read. It can be buggy in the summer so bring bug spray. Badger Ridge has some beautiful views. It is one of the best hiking spots near the Omaha metro area.

Really well maintained trails. Lots of bugs so bring good repellent! Only had time to hike the southern trails, will be back to explore them all and possibly do some camping!
