Venture to Nebraska – Hike and Lodging
April 10 @ 10:00 am - April 11 @ 12:00 pm$50 – $260
On April 10th and 11th we will VENTURE to our neighboring state of Nebraska! Join us for a special ADVENTURE to HIKE at Indian Cave State Park. Named for the large sandstone cave within the park, Indian Cave State Park encompasses 3,052 rugged acres bordering the mighty Missouri River. The park is well known for its 22 miles of scenic hiking and biking trails as well as excellent camping and picnicking spots. The park boasts sweeping views of the wide, winding Missouri river and a majestic hardwood forest through which we will be HIKING! This really is a gorgeous place to explore, we have had two of our most memorable adventures here in the past. We saw great sights along the trail and found both Jack in the Pulpit and PawPaw trees in bloom.
After our day on the trail, we will to head to one of our favorite getaway locations, The Lied Lodge in Nebraska City! This is a luxury hotel with special features in every room and beautiful common spaces. The Lied Lodge is a “timber” lodge that brings to mind the historic tourist lodgings found at the Grand Canyon. It is a gorgeous place, that emphasizes love of nature, particularly trees, with quotes embedded in the timbers. After our hike, we can enjoy the awesome hot tub, olympic sized swimming pool, and sauna. There is also a fabulous deck that spans the length of the hotel and overlooks the Arbor Day orchard, it’s perfect for a before dinner cocktail. Our dinner reservations are at The Timber Restaurant which has an amazing dinner menu that will please the palate of each individual.
