Description

A must hiking adventure is waiting for you in the town of Rolfe, Iowa. Located in the northwest section of the state, the Three Rivers Trail runs for 26 miles and offers a pawtastic exploration for you and Fido. This pawtastic trail is named for the three rivers which it crosses.

You will be pleasantly surprised by the beautiful landscapes you will encounter on your journey. There are many areas which cross prairieland and farmland, as well as railroad crossings scattered throughout. Be sure to stop and read the historical markers that have been placed in strategic places depicting battles long-ago fought for control of the region.

This rural trail is perfect for anyone looking for some solitude while enjoying their day with their fur-ever friend. It is a relatively unused trail offering a place to go that is not very populated, so you will enjoy the day without noise and crowds! Your pup can remain off leash here, but be advised it is a shared-use trail. Bicyclists are welcome, and bikes can be rented at the trailhead, if you so choose. Keep your eyes pealed for cyclists to make sure Fido is safe.

Along the way, there are three areas where picnic tables have been set up, and you will find pit toilets or restrooms here as well. You can also plan an overnight at the campground along this route for an extra special treat. Be advised there is no water or food available along the trail, so pack plenty to keep you both going strong!

Since Iowa summers can be hot, make plenty of stops to keep your pawtastic pup happy. The river crossings are the perfect place to let your pup cool his paws in the rushing waters! 

Three Rivers Trail is a great place to explore and hike in the state!
