Cinder Path

Iowa’s first rail trail, the Cinder Path runs from Chariton to Humeston, winding 14 miles down the Chariton River Valley. Visitors can enjoy looking at wildflowers, prairie areas, native Iowa timber and plenty of wildlife when using this trail. However, the trail’s cinder/limestone surface can become rough in some areas, making it difficult for bike riders with narrow tires.
