Hike through Glacier Hills County Park

2 miles 100 ft gain  - Loop Trail

Added by Andy Merkel

With trails, sledding hills, lake access, and rows and rows of pine trees, this park has everything!

This park has 5 trails ranging from 0.5 mile to 2 miles long which vary terrain, elevation, and scenery. There are plenty of amazing views here, especially as the sun is about to set. You can bring your dog, bring a picnic, and cross country ski in the winter! 

Park Hours: 6 AM - 9 PM
Park is open year-round
