Iowa Trails to Hike With Dogs in the Fall [PHOTOS]

There are countless fall activities, festivals and events in Iowa for people, but what about our pups? Here is a list of some of the dog friendly autumn activities you can do with your furry friends.

1. Grant Wood Trail

2303 US-151

“The Grant Wood Trail (Linn County Segment) is one of 1600 rail-trails supported by Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, a nonprofit organization that is working to create a nationwide network of trails from former rail lines and connecting corridors. Previously an unused railroad corridor, this “rail-trail” is now a great place to walk Fido in Marion! The map below shows a parking area with convenient access to the Grant Wood Trail (Linn County Segment). Rails-to-Trails Conservancy has generously provided map data for this trail to Bring Fido for informational purposes only.

3. Maquoketa Caves

10970 98th St.
Maquoketa, IA 52060
ph. 563-652-5833

Artifacts such as pottery, as well as tools and projectile points made of stone have been found in the caves and surrounding area. These discoveries tell us that the Maquoketa Caves area has been a popular spot for hundreds of years, perhaps thousands of years. Early recorded history tells of the Native Americans in the area, and that they were likely visitors to the Raccoon Creek valleys. From the discovery of the caves in the 1830’s by settlers until the present, the park has been a place to view the special beauty that nature has to offer.”-http://www.iowadnr.gov
