In Lanesboro, access the Russell White Nature Trail at the intersection of 4th Street and 120th Street. You can also pick up the trail farther southwest where it intersects Union Avenue or 130th Street. Parking is available in a small dirt lot at the western trailhead on Timber Avenue.
Neat backwoods all grass ‘trail.’ This is more of a hunters/outdoorsman’s path disguised as a trail however is definitely rideable on a mountain bike or hybrid if you air out a tad. Id suggest parking in Lanesboro near the town playground- ride south and back will make for a decent ride. There’s a turnout towards the south end… when you’re in the woods south of trestle where you can pick up some additional distance. This place is backwoods! You get to see all of what Iowa really is here: a melting pot of farmland, woods, the deep south, and the Wild West, hehe.
Love this little trail. I run/ bike here a lot. The views from the trestle are amazing and a lot of times recently bald eagles have been sitting in the trees nearby the trestle.. lots of wildlife to be seen in general... if you happen to be in the area and need your trail fix this is worth a look. You can start at either end.
