Mount Morris Hills Park

This county park is a good place to visit in every season. In springtime, the wildflowers are in bloom and warblers and other songbirds are passing through. In summer, it’s a great place to hike and look for nesting birds, or bring your canoe and paddle Lake Morris in search of marsh birds and herons. In fall, the colorful leaves of the park’s hardwood trees make it a must for a day trip. Turkey vultures glide on the thermals created around the large hill that rises sharply above Lake Morris. Hawks in migration are seen in good numbers at this park in the fall. Take a drive to the top of the hill and watch the hawks move.

Directions: From Wautoma, take Hwy 152 east and north to tiny Mount Morris. Turn left on Cty G to the sign. Driving Cty W will take you around the hill to the entrance to Nordic Mountain.
