Five-Ridge Prairie is a 4.8 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Westfield, Iowa and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking and trail running and is accessible year-round.
Excellent trail system. Used this area to train for the Appalachian trail and the roughness and elevation variances made for a good workout. Go online for maps because it's easy to get lost here with the trails and fire break paths.
I've seen the trails get quite overgrown in late summer also with a lot of nettles so beware.
Great rolling hills and beautiful in the Fall. Nice open space with little traffic.
Hiked V1 and R1 trails in October. Nice fall colors, very warm weather, and very few people, even on a Sunday. Have also hiked this in the winter with snow on the ground.
