The Wabash Trace Nature Trail is one of Iowa's premier trails. Stretching
more than 62 miles through southwest Iowa, the Wabash Trace is a
converted railroad right-of-way that runs from Council Bluffs on the north to
Blanchard on the Iowa/Missouri border. Biking, hiking, cross-country skiing
and even horseback riding on the equestrian trails that parallel parts of the
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.
Parking & Trail Access: Council Bluffs, Mineola, Silver City, Malvern, Imogene,
Shenandoah, Coin, and Blanchard
