Day 4 (Sunday, September 8)
Heading south out of Malvern on county highway L63 for several miles, this route mostly follows the West Nishnabotna River valley. From there you’ll head west on J10 up the hills into Tabor. Tabor is home to the historic antislavery district and historic Reverend Todd House. Next, you’ll head back down the hill to Thurman. From there, it’s back to Bluff Road, which runs along the base of the Front Range. The final stretch is up Highway 2 (another hill!) to the entrance of Waubonsie State Park. Stop by the scenic overlook before heading back down the hill, through the park, and ending at the Washawtee Lodge for a fun celebration. Congratulations,--you’ve completed the first-ever Loess Hills Parks & Peaks Ride!
