Ascent Trip ReportAs far as I can determine, Gun Shot Hill is the 8th highest "named" summit point in Iowa. I visited this hill, located in a nice picnic area with lots of shade, with my son, Marshall. A sheltered picnic area is located at the "summit" which requires an "climb" of less than 100 yards. There is not much of a view of Black Hawk Lake from here because of the thick forest, but maybe there would be after leaf drop in the winter. Even without a view, it is a nice area for a family outting.
