Fun little treasure tucked in the very NW corner of Iowa. Excluding some cool geologic formations, nothing in Gitchie will blow you away. Depending if the grounds have been maintained you might run into some graffiti.

Trail not well maintained. Fallen trees along the portion next to the river. A very quiet trail though which is nice to have close to a city. The pool was nice. I recommend starting the trail from the Southeast entrance and not the North. Some tall Bluestem native grass In some areas. Trail is a little over 2 miles in length.@backpackerneil

Very primitive trails... secluded and easy hiking. Enjoyed this area. I would imagine this is a great place to canoe. Ideal for a short hike and a view of nature.
