Russ Wildlife Area


100 acres


Lying just adjacent to the west side of Thorpe Park, the Russ Area is a fine example of past glacial activity in north central Iowa, containing a 40-acre march surrounded by rolling hills. Oak timber covers some of the hills, as do areas of natural and restored prairie grasses. A trail winds through the area, and an observation deck along the trail provides visitors with a panoramic view.
