We drove about 11 miles from the campground to a parking area near Cresco.
It was foggy which also meant it was cooler. We started early nevertheless. There were many signs like this on the trail. While this one seemed to be a mystery – yield to what? – most of the others were cut-throughs for farm machinery.
Leaving Ridgeway Park:
Our turnaround point was in Calmar:
Calmar is the location for this county’s “freedom rock”. The goal is to have one in each of Iowa’s 99 counties.
In between the fields of corn, a head looked up and watched me until I rode away.
Another beautiful trail. 35 miles.
