Hidden Bridge Wildlife Area

Located 6 miles west and 2 miles south of Larchwood along the Big Sioux River, this 155-acre area is an excellent place to get away for any nature lover.

Hidden Bridge Wildlife Area has it all, beautiful rolling hills of native tallgrass prairie grasses and flowers, fishing along the banks of the river, and areas of timber are all perfect for discovering a wide range of birds and other wildlife.

This area also provides in-season public hunting opportunities for pheasants, turkeys, and whitetail deer. Hidden Bridge is one of two wildlife areas where horses are permitted from mid-May to Mid-September. Please check with our office for exact dates.
