Excellent trail. I like the strip mine sections and my wife liked the wooded areas. Only one corner was very wet and muddy. We went around this section.

Nice short hike in the Lime Creek area. There was also an information board telling all about the old Mason City Brewery.

Very short walking area that is paved. Great for all ages.

This was an excellent loop trail that had a great mix of prairie, wooded areas and strip pits. I would enjoy mountain biking some of these trails soon.

Trails and scenery that dreams are made of, beautiful scenery that have bits for everyone. Canopy covered groomed dirt trails with spectacular views of the Winnebago River directly connected to exposed gravel trails surrounded by natural prairie grasses and quarry style rock formations. I only hiked the first two trails of the 11 overall Lime Creek Trails, so I will most definitely be visiting again to experience more of what Mason City has to offer! 8.8 miles of trails in Lime Creek Nature Center and 10.3 miles when you add the Winnebago trail that walks you right into town! I have a lot more hiking to do!

Grew up in Mason City so I spent many summer days on these trails. Even as I got older it was still a place for hanging out and getting into shenanigans. There are some very beautiful views along the river and bluffs. Definitely check out the ruins to the mill.
