Accessible from the numerous towns the trail passes through, the Wabash Trace offers a journey through the scenic Iowa countryside.
From wide-open farm fields flowing with nature's abundant harvest to the picturesque Loess Hills of western Iowa, visitors to the Wabash Trace will find their journey on the trail a memorable experience.
