Hubbard Prairie Trail Description

The Hubbard Prairie Trail is a one-mile rail-trail extending from the northwest edge of the small town of Hubbard in central Iowa to the Meier Wildlife Refuge. The refuge offers a pleasant place to fish, kayak, or enjoy other outdoor activities.


The trail is constructed on the abandoned railroad right of way formerly operated by the Chicago Northwestern Railroad. The entire right of way is considered the "Hubbard Prairie" which has additional tracts along the right-of-way farther west, but this is the only stretch that has a trail constructed upon it.


Parking and Trail Access

Parking is located at the Meier Wildlife Refuge (1 mile west of Hubbard on the south side of State Highway 175), or along Highway 65 on the northwest side of Hubbard.
