The Wapsi-Great Western Line (WGWL) Trail is an 18.5 mile asphalt hiking and biking trail located in northern Iowa. The majority of the trail runs on abandoned railroad beds and winds through rural countryside, with less than one mile on shared roadway. You will traverse through five biospheres: prairie, wetland, farmland, marsh and woodlands. You will cross three waterways: Wapsipinicon River, Watson’s Creek, and Lake Hendricks. You may encounter white tail deer, muskrat, otter, turkey, pheasant and numerous native species.
