Witness ancient brilliance in each of the Hopewell earthworks

A memorable and enriching experience

Mound City Ranger Guided Tours


Hopewell Culture National Historical Park
Daily through August 4

Tours begin at the Mound City Group visitor center at 10 a.m. Rangers will guide visitors into the Mound City Group earthwork. The tour will last approximately one hour and will be mostly in the sun. Visitors should wear comfortable walking/hiking shoes and bring sun protection and bug spray. All terrain at Mound City Group is flat and considered an "easy" hike/walk.

Ranger-led talks beginning at 1 p.m. are approximately 30 minutes in length and do not include a tour. Talks are perfect opportunities to learn more about a variety of topics from park rangers while staying cool in the shade near or in the Mound City Group Visitor Center. Topics change daily.
