Pleasant Valley Trail Description

The Pleasant Valley Trail is a network of paved, multi-use trail that runs for over four miles throughout the rural city of Ida Grove in western Iowa. Sections of the trail follow the Maple River, Badger Creek, and Odebolt Creek, giving residents and visitors the chance to explore some of the natural beauty of the area, right in the middle of the community.

The bulk of the trail is composed of a loop around the heart of town, with a small gap in the northeast. Destinations along the route include Badger Creek Park in the south, the local high school and hospital, the community rec center, and the small and charming downtown strip. On the northern end of the trail, along the Maple River, a segment of the trail branches off the loop to head north to Moorehead Pioneer Park, just north of the city. The park offers some beautiful wild space to get up-close to local flora and fauna, as well as some historic buildings that mark the site of the original site of the settlement. The 12-acre lake within the park is also a popular local fishing spot, with ample spots for picnicking as well.

An excellent community pathway for exercise and recreation, the Pleasant Valley Trail also helps connect residents with a variety of important local destinations, allowing easy transportation by bike or by foot across the entire community.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking and restrooms are available within Moorehead Pioneer Park, located north of Highway 59/175 on Jasper Avenue. Additional parking is available along the trail at the Ida Grove Community Rec Center, located at 311 Barnes Street just south of 2nd Street.

Nice flowing trail

This is a nice, almost completely paved trail through the town. Benches are placed along the trail. This is a flowing trail with flat areas and hills.
