Join the Marshall County Conservation Board for a Fall Foliage Bike Ride on the Heart of Iowa Nature Trail, Thursday, October 17 from 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. Participants should bring their bike, helmet, water and lunch and meet at the Rhodes trail head. The group will eat lunch at 11:30 a.m. and then bike the crushed limestone trail while enjoying the scenic views and fall colors.

“Diane Hall, MCCB naturalist, will lead the group on a ride through wooded and open portions of this recreational trail to the picturesque, historic Hoy Bridge only two miles from the Rhodes trail head. The 212 foot long, concrete arch railroad bridge, which was built in 1913-1914, sits 60 feet above Clear Creek. An adjacent foot path allows visitors an impressive view of the bridge. The total distance traveled that day will be determined by group preference and available time,” wrote Hall.
