The Old Creamery Nature Trail, running between Vinton and Dysart, is so named for the Old Creamery Theater Company building in Garrison, another tiny farm community through which the trail passes. The gravel trail passes through rural Iowa among cultivated fields and farmsteads. In places stands of mature trees offer shade. At both ends and in the middle (Garrison) the trail passes through rural towns along an abandoned rail corridor now owned and managed by the Benton County Conservation Board. A group of local volunteers helps to maintain the trail.
In Dysart the trailhead is off Highway 21 and just east of Casey's. In Vinton the trailhead is off Highway 218 just north of Theisen's and ALCO. You can also access the trail in Garrison at the county trunk road V56 near Pine Street and where the trail intersect Hickory/Houston Street.
