Hello, I’m Chris The Iowa Hiker. In 2012 I wanted to get back out into the woods and started looking for local trails to hike. The more I looked, the less I found. I figured I couldn’t be the only one interested in getting out and seeing Iowa’s green places, so I decided to begin building a database.
Over the last 4 years I have hiked and recorded hundreds of miles of Iowa parks and am now creating a place where that information can be shared. My hope is that those who also want to get outside will find this as a source to help them find more trails to explore.
