Readlyn Grump Trail Description

The Readlyn Grump Trail offers a 6-mile paved path across Bremer County with views of open fields, several streams, and a bridge over Quarter Section Run.

It begins at the terminus for the Waverly Rail Trail and travels to Readlyn's Water Tower Park and Friendly People Ball Park. If you head south where the Waverly Rail Trail and Readlyn Grump Trail meet, you'll be on the Denver-Jefferson Trail, which travels 2 miles into downtown Denver.

These three trails are all part of the Rolling Prairie Trail system, which, when complete, will include nine communities, three counties, and two state parks. Another segment, the 5.5-mile Shell Rock River Trail goes from Shell Rock to Clarksville.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking and restrooms are available at the trail's eastern end in Water Tower Park (off E. 5th Street) and at Friendly People Ball Park (off Wilmont Avenue).

Not Limited to Grumpy Riders

I recently rode the Waverly Rail Trail connecting down to Denver. I noticed the Readlyn Grump Trail and came again for a visit a few weeks later.

As one would ride east out of Waverly toward Readlyn the tree canopy fades to riding across open areas east of Highway 63. The trail is very straight and the pavement is well maintained.

There are no services on the trail, but it's a nice ride to the town of Readlyn, which is an idyllic little burg to ride around when you reach the end of the trail.

It's a great add-on to the Waverly Trail.
