About Faulkes Heritage Woods

Located on the Cedar Rapids and Marion border, Faulkes Heritage Woods is an outdoor gem in one of Iowa's most populous counties. The native woodland along Indian Creek features over 300 plant species, a 1.5 mile walking trail and high-quality wildlife habitat. The land is permanently protected by a conservation easement donated to INHF by sisters Alice Smith and Elizabeth Barry and their nieces, Nancy Thompson and Cynthia Thompson. It is named in honor of Alice Faulkes, the grandmother and great-grandmother of the four women. Now part of the Marion parks system, Faulkes Heritage Woods is owned and managed by the City of Marion.  

Please bring:
  • Clothes you don't mind getting beat up, work gloves and sturdy shoes
