Explore the Heritage trail, the Upper Midwest’s most scenic all-season trail. Follow the 26-mile route of a once bustling railroad into a 450 foot deep valley past old mining and mill towns while discovering the rugged beauty that welcomes thousands of bicyclists and hikers each year. The mountain trail in prairie country is set in the deep, rugged woodlands with a gently sloping grade making travel easy and enjoyable. View the numerous river outlooks, sheer limestone bluffs, interpretive sites, railroad artifacts, and fossil collecting along this beautiful, crushed-limestone trail.
There have been extensions to existing on-road bike routes in the City of Dubuque to connect to existing trail systems at the south of the City.
