The Mississippi River Trail (MRT) is a world-class bicycle trail that will follow the Mississippi River all the way from its headwaters in Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico. The trail is partially completed; much of it is still in the planning and development stages. When complete, the MRT will link over 2,000 miles of recreational trails through 10 states, including 280 miles in Iowa.
Designated as a National Millennium Trail, the Mississippi River Trail will preserve precious natural environments along the river, stimulate economic growth in river communities, and provide bicyclists access to a variety of landscapes, history, and culture.
This national route is designated along bike routes, paved shoulders, and off street trails. This Jackson County section of the Mississippi River Trail offers views of limestone bluffs, river panoramas, and bucolic rolling hills.
