This is a short loop that starts at the loess hills scenic overlook. It's mostly prairie with a few small hills. The view is pretty, especially in the fall.

I like this hike as it's beautiful and short, but I wouldn't classify it as easy!

the loop part of the trail was hard to locate. if you walk to the end of the upper hills and turn around, it's a great little hike.
