Wonderful trail - Note Dyersville end notes in my review

July, 2022 by pxtaylor

Loved riding this trail. Very shaded for the most part and well maintained. The last few miles to Dyersville gets exposed to the sun and wind. Many things to see along the way and many selfie ops. The trail map indicated water and picnic shelter at Dyersville end. When I got there the trail terminates at the end of Beltline Rd, by a lumber yard, I found no facilities there and turned around. Checking Google Maps I later found that you have to ride another 0.6 miles along Beltline Rd to get to the trailhead and this is not obvious or signed when you get to the "end" of the gravel. I'm sure many like me would have turned around also as you can't see the trailhead when you look down Beltline Rd.

Beautiful shady trail Sageville to Epaf

June, 2022 by kuffner

We rode the middle of the trail on two consecutive days because we loved the trail so much. Lots of benches and restrooms, very scenic with tons of shade even at one in the afternoon. The prettiest section was from Durango west for 8 miles. You ride along the creek and I and out of high bluffs on both sides of the trail. The trail has about a 1% grade up riding west and prevailing winds tend to be out of the west so recommend starting at either Sageville or Durango and riding west depending on how far you want to ride. This trail rates in my top 3 trails in the Midwest. Hubby and I have ridden over 120 trails and generally do a 20-25 mile trip each time we ride. Reward yourself and eat at Brazen for dinner.

Heritage Trail (IA)

Needs paved!

June, 2022 by carol.brown14

Did this trail last weekend starting in Dyersville. Crushed limestone makes it tough for road bikes. Very buggy. Really needs to be paved.

Kewash Nature Trail

Improved with concrete path

June, 2022 by marykayboeding

Have ridden this many times. Went yesterday & they have paved a portion of it on way to West Chester.

Trail is straight little to no grade. We always see deer, chipmunks, birds & snakes.

Unpaved ,portion is pretty much dirt packed with little to no pea rock. Rutted in spots bc of rains.

Overall a decent trail. Hope to see more improvements!

Heritage Trail, out from Dubuqye

May, 2022 by matthewge

Saturday May 21, 2022 -- my first time to check out this trail. I rode out about 10 miles, starting in Dubuque's Comiskey Park, and returning for about 22 miles round trip. The four miles nearest DBQ were paved, the rest well maintained crushed limestone. Not at all crowded (50F temp) and a very pleasant ride. Once you are a few miles from DBQ, the scenery is sweet and keeps changing. I will be back, for sure! Enjoy the ride.

Sac and Fox Trail

Has a very good bike trails

April, 2022 by colekadia03

It has very good bike trails and obstacles to try out. Definitely not a trail to go on after it rained but other than that it’s a great trail and not many people there!

Grant Wood Trail (Linn County Segment)

Out of Date Details

October, 2021 by stones1963

In 2021, the longest segment of the trail was extended further west within Marion and now ends at 7th STREET. That stretch is about six miles long from the east endpoint at Oxley Road. The trail goes underneath Highway 13/151.

There is also another segment of trail within Marion that is about 1.3 miles in length. The western endpoint is just east of C Avenue NE. The trail has a high bridge over Indian Creek, and the trail dead ends just west of Marion Blvd. When I visited on 10/04/2021, there was construction underway to complete the 4/10's of a mile gap between the two sections described above. Hopefully, my review will also soon be out of date, and the connected stretches making one eight-mile trail.

The middle 2.3 mile stretch from Creekside Road to Springville Road is primitive, but passable. I would describe that stretch as grass growing through a narrow, gravel footpath. The grass is kept mowed. That stretch is scenic, with full-sized trees. However, with the primitive surface, I had to carefully watch where I was riding, instead of being able to gaze around.

The eastern-most stretch, between Alderman Road and Martelle should not be listed as a trail. It is not maintained, and there are multiple places with trees blocking the abandoned right of way.

not for bikes

September, 2021 by mstewartthomas

Overgrown foliage and thorn vines across the path. Bring your own clippers or take another route for access to Clear Creek.
