C.R. Roberts Memorial Trail

dysart trail

January, 2023 by sgrell02

Has little work out things on side of trail, that’s pretty awesome for them to have.

JewEllsworth Trail

love it

December, 2022 by travelnurse413

Although short, it’s sweet! 3.5 miles of paved trail with a few benches scattered along the way to stop, reflect and just enjoy! Have ridden it multiple times, in all seasons, and it never fails to given me pleasure.

Mississippi River Trail (Riverdale to Davenport)

Lots to view while riding. One of the best trails in Eastern Iowa. Stopped at the Village for lunch with lots of eating establishments.Ann

Kewash Nature Trail

Stopped here on my way across country on I 80. Worth the diversion, good surface and shade. Harvest time in Iowa so plenty to see. Good camping close by in Hills Iowa.

T-Bone Trail

Fall Ride

October, 2022 by muller2218

Rode from Brayton just past Hamlin and back to Brayton. Was a nice ride but chose to ride on a day with a strong wind from the Northwest. Enjoyed all the farmland and stopping to watch a farmer combine his corn. Will definitely ride this trail again.

Ringgold Trailway

Now all asphalt but add the Poh Hollow park loop for a scenic hike

October, 2022 by bastamper

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.

Heritage Trail (IA)

needs to be paved

October, 2022 by cathywalker34

Beautiful trail. However the surface was a pain. The “gravel” was soft and bumpy for several miles. We would have given it 5 stars otherwise.

Waverly Rail Trail

waverly to readlyn

October, 2022 by pdchawk

13.6 miles from waverly to readlyn. It’s very shady on the western part of the trail and not so much the closer you get to readlyn. Good hard surfaced trail that has great towns and parks and amenities on both ends.

Rolling Prairie Trail

Bristow to shell rock

October, 2022 by pdchawk

The trail is complete from clarskville to Bristow. A nice hard surfaced trail ( blacktop and concrete). 22.5 miles from Bristow to shell rock ( there is a portion of it just west of Clarksville that is on the highway for about a mile but there is a bike lane). The trail segment around the Hampton area is crushed limestone and is not very nice.

Prairie Land Trail

descent but nothing special

October, 2022 by pdchawk

The trail starts south of mason city and goes to Thornton (15 miles each way) . It’s crushed limestone with very little shade and no benches to stop and rest. It’s basically a continuous trail through farm fields. It’s the only long distance trail in the mason city area so it’s better than nothing.

Trolley Trail (Clear Lake/Mason City)

don’t travel to ride this “trail”

October, 2022 by pdchawk

Basically this is just a sidewalk next to a busy highway that connects mason city to clear lake. There isn’t much shade or much for scenery.

Clinton Discovery Trail

Beautiful Mississippi River View

October, 2022 by fqhgrbx7tc

You are able to start at the beautiful Eagle Point Park and travel through Clinton and end in Camanche. There is a huge hill at Eagle park that you might need to walk. You ride on the dike of the Mississippi river, then right through downtown Clinton. The path then takes you by Industrial area on hwy 30 but on your own path to Camanche. You travel through the town of Camanche in neighborhoods.
