The Prairie Farmer Recreational Trail — not just a great way to get from here to there. A great for walking, roller-blading, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, people watching, bird watching, observing wildlife, enjoying nature and many other great ideas just waiting to be discovered. Bicyclists, joggers, hikers, and cross-country skiers are all invited to use the trail. Snowmobiles are allowed on a restricted basis between Ridgeway to near Cresco only. The small part of Northeast Iowa that you’ll see while on the trail will say it all. We have fresh air, clean water, and open spaces. Discover Iowa. Discover the Prairie Farmer Recreational Trail.
