I had to pinch myself to make sure that I was still in IA on this one. The views are fantastic and there are actual trees. Bill Schuler's directions got me to the parking lot from whence I tagged all 3 candidates, although the middle bump, which I took to be just to the right of the wooden boardwalk up to the observation deck, is obviously higher. I hiked the 5 minutes over to the eastern and western bumps for giggles and to get a different vantage point. The Loess Hills are well worth a visit, even if there were not a CoHP easily accessible in their midst.
