The entire 2 mile rail trail is asphalt and very easy grade. You can take the Poh Hollow Park trail for some more adventurous hiking. Smooth wide grass path with some good hill terrain. Can also add in Trace Dragoon Nature Center for a nice informational trail. I’m guessing it adds about a mile.
The portion between Peru and Brownville has recently been reopened since the 2019 floods. There are portions of extremely loose, fine gravel. Not suitable for thin tires.
Hopefully a few rains and continued traffic will pack the trail.
There are soft spots on the portion between NE City and Peru, as well, but the material is squishier. Seems to be ground up asphalt.
At the end of the day, gorgeous trail that's on the mend from a "500-year" flood.
from brownsville to peru is now open. they have put down a layer of crushed rock on several miles-from brownville north for about 2 miles- and it is very soft. will be until it rains to help pack it. probably not great for skinny tires
We enjoyed riding about 11-12 miles on this trail. Great trail, beautiful fall scenery!
We loved this trail! We rode about 11-12 miles of it. Great workout, and beautiful fall scenery!
Enjoyable tree canopy trail that travels through western Iowa’s farmlands and small towns. Should be on everyone’s trail adventures list. We will definitely be back for another ride.
The first eight or nine miles is fine except for finding large, very large grave(Gravel that will never break down unless semi’s drive over it, for years). These sections that are very uncomfortable to ride over. Then you get to the corn and soybean fields, do not go this way unless you like pushing your bike through soft sand and more of the large gravel chunks. Then you head towards Peru and the Trail is growing in nicely with weeds in the middle and you get to Peru hoping for a nice rest stop and someone has vandalized the bathrooms and it looks like it’s been that way a long time and you cannot go past this point towards Brownsville, barriers all over for that way. But the first 9 miles was very nice.
Road the tail to Peru back on hybrid bikes. First 6 miles is in the trees and great shape. The next 5 miles to Peru, the trail had rough spots and areas of loose sand and gravel but doable. The bathrooms at Peru are not working. Overall, great trail with no traffic.
We have electric bikes and enjoy checking out all the nearby trails. The Urban Trail in St Jo was great. It is very different from many others we have done. As in previous reviews this trail has a lot of hills so this gave us the opportunity to use lots of gears and PAS options. We enjoyed looking at all the different scenery along the way as we went through park, residential, older and newer areas and lots of squirrels. The whole trail is paved which was nice. The main trail is about 10 miles but there is a side trail to 29 that will add a few more miles to get a longer ride.
Rode from Council Bluffs to Silver City and back. The limestone is easy to ride on and the stretch we rode was almost completely shaded. That was a plus since it was a very hot day. Loved it!
90/100. Temp in 90's Parked at Council Bluffs large parking trailhead, road the 90% canopy trail to Coin. Payed $5 camping fee,set up inside shelter house left gear in tent (bathroom shower-cold but ok with me). The drop box for camping is southside of larger building south of bathroom. Very nice quiet town mowed grass. Road rest of trail to Blanchard. From Coin South trail becomes less traveled but surface still very good, some down limbs and yes trail ends into tall grass. I road thru lot and down main to Missouri line. www.wabashtrace.org describes services available and is very accurate. Everything open that I saw. On webpage with mileage chart, the mile post didn't always match. Look out for nail heads sticking up on some bridges and 4 spots with animal holes in trail. This trail was basically fantastic,huge amount cardinals, blue jays, robins, some deer; not many flowers. Reminents of train wrecks at 3 different bridges (rail cars in creek). Where else can you ride 62 miles with 3 towns with services stones throw from trail and 1 larger town 6 blocks to full services. Also 3 stops with cheap tent camping with showers. Trail connects to downtown Omaha but I didn't have time.
We took a detour on our drive to Des Moines from Colorado to ride from Silver City to lunch at the Classic Cafe (large! potions) and back. Quiet but for bird calls, green tunnel through terraced farm land. Well maintained surface. Stopped in the Happy Trails Cycle shop to purchase a trail pass. (25 May 2021).
