One of my favorite things to do in the warmer months of the year is hike, but I often have a hard time finding places that are mountainous enough for a hike in my home region, the Midwest. Although the Midwest is known for its flat, rolling land, it is also home to craggy bluffs and hilly nature paths. There are many hidden spots throughout Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Indiana, and Ohio that are worth adding to your travel bucket list.
If you find yourself wanting to see some wildlife and beautiful scenery on a sunny day, take a look at this map of gorgeous trails and parks. From sandy dunes to rocky cliffs and waterfalls, the Midwest has more hiking to offer than you may think.
