Iowa’s trails total 1,600+ miles and make the state the World Capitol of Trails. Many of the trails are paved, yet some have a compacted gravel/limestone base.  The hard surfaced trails are appropriate for any type of bicycle, but you may prefer a wider tire on the compact gravel.

Some of the urban trail systems are expansive and contain several trails within the community.  Efforts have been made to map the trails with more than 5 miles of distance.
