Located in the small city of Holstein, in rural Ida County, Iowa, the Holstein Community Trail is a smooth, concrete trail for walking and biking that spans most of the southeastern edge of town. The trail begins in the south at the city's Lohff-Schumann Community Center, a popular local destination for fitness and athletic activities, and then runs east and north along the outskirts of the city limits.
The trail offers some gorgeous views of the Iowa farmland that surrounds Holstein, allowing trail users to disappear into nature not far from their own backyards. Passing around the athletic fields behind the local high school, the trail comes to an end along East 2nd Street, a short distance east of the community's charming downtown. Local officials hope to extend the trail further north to provide even more opportunity for exercise and outdoor recreation, although plans for expanding the trail had to be put on the back burner in 2018 due to cost considerations.
Parking is available at the southern end of the trail at the Lohff-Schumann Community Center, located at 301 Lohff-Schumann Drive, south of the intersection of Kofmehl Drive and Kiel Street.
