Hiking Trails

Cherokee County Conservation has about 9.5 miles of maintained hiking trails throughout the count. Tails vary in width and are mostly dirt or mowed grass. They wind through woodlands and prairies and cross small streams. Users will enjoy beautiful views and varying levels of trail difficulty.

Areas With Maintained Trails
Martin’s Access (6 miles, ranging from easy to strenuous difficulties) MAP
Red Tail Ridge (1.5 miles, difficulty level: easy) MAP
Silver Sioux Recreation Area (2 miles, ranging from easy to strenuous difficulties) MAP

Other Cherokee County Conservation Areas provide many hiking opportunities; however, they do not have maintained trails in many of these locations. Although, this can be where you can find some of the most interesting plants and wildlife species.
