Find a Trail
Iowa By Trail is a multi-use trail app that allows users to find Iowa trails close to them, find points of interest—like restaurants, natural areas and attractions—along their route, share their adventure with friends, track stats and more.
Iowa By Trail was produced by Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation, a statewide conservation nonprofit working to protect and restore Iowa's land, water and wildlife. INHF has helped establish over 65 percent of Iowa's multi-use rail trails, creating connections to the natural world for all Iowans.
