trail are some of the great ways to experience the Wabash Trace. User fee
required: $1.00/day or $10.00/year.
Trail Description: Former railroad corridor converted to a multi-use trail; trail
width 10 feet, corridor width 100 feet.

Review: Crushed limestone. Better maintained closer to Council Bluffs. A lot of use, especially on Thursday evenings so avoid if you don't like crowds. Easy ride, shaded, beginner skill level needed.

Review: It's relatively easy and perfect for scenic countryside view. Even though I'm intermediate level, I still enjoy this trail a lot.

Review: Easy ride. Relaxing. The horse trails on the side are good for short spurts of off roadness. Taco ride, of course, is a favorite.
