Joshua Hicks 3 years ago 0.0 Your rating: Effigy Mound National Monument has some very nice hiking trails with beautiful overlooks of the Mississippi River. The trails are well kept and the visitor center is relatively new. Inside the center there is an informative little museum describing the wildlife of the area and some of the Native American artifacts found at the site. The rangers were helpful in offering us maps with directions for the hikes. I would highly recommend a stop at this monument to stretch your legs on a road trip or for a full day of hiking.
