Preparation Canyon State Park is a 4.4 mile out and back trail located near Onawa, IA. The trail is primarily used for hiking and is accessible year-round.
The environment was calm and enjoyable. Although the trails were hard to navigate as they had not been cut clearly.
Giving it 3 stars for the looks - not as pretty as other near by places I hiked at, although it did have some nice views. Very wicked hills. Spent 1.5 hrs. Nice hike. Lots of hunters in December in the area. Make sure to wear orange.
Some wicked hills here. Nice short hike for a morning.
