Gun Shot Hill may be the 8th highest "named" summit point in Iowa. It is located in a nice picnic area with lots of shade. 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 the lake from here because of the thick forest, but maybe there would be after leaf drop in the winter.
