Opened in 2014, Hillsboro's Centennial Disc Golf Course celebrates 100 years of Albert Field Memorial Park. Designed by Patrick Blake, the course offers a challenging 9-hole experience. The course will be open for the spring, summer, and fall seasons.

The 4.3-mile Hillsboro State Trail will make you feel instantly at home. Easy and flat, this gravel trail will take you on a short excursion from Hillsboro to Union Center. But this trail is more of a draw for what it connects you to than for the trip itself. In Union Center you can hook up with the 400 State Trail, which connects to the Elroy-Sparta and Omaha state trails to the north. Access this longer trail system for amenities such as campsites, trail information kiosks, picnic rest areas and restroom facilities.
