The East and West Hickory Ridge Trail's main feature is scenic overlooks, a series of burial mounds and the Bridal Falls Trails, There is also a spectacular scenic view at the north end of the trail. If you walk further north on the trail past the scenic overlook, there appear to be more burial mounds. It is situated away from the tourist sites which make for a quiet walk through the woods. West Hickory Ridge is an invigorating hike when combined with the East Hickory Ridge trail.

This trail in Pikes Peak offers some of the best views of the Mississippi in Northeast Iowa. It's a very wooded covered trail that incorporates about 1/2 a mile of wooden steps up to a large rock and small waterfall called Bridal Veil Falls at the start of the hike. If you have bad knees or cannot climb stairs I would not do this trail. The rest of trail is beautiful and offers amazing quite views of the river and Indian Burial Mounds. On several occasions we have seen many deer and wildlife here.

This trail is short, has lot to see with the falls and overlooks and it is less traveled. On the north end of the look their is an unofficial trail that continues north for a short distance to another overlook and on down to the valley floor if you want to pursue.
