With all of the heat lately, we start to think about finding water to cool off. With that in mind, we wanted to highlight 2 of our routes that feature waterfalls and other amazing views.
Iowa Waterfall Route
Who knew that Iowa boasts so many wonderful waterfalls? We did, and this route takes you directly to two waterfalls and puts you in close proximity to three others. The two waterfalls with the easiest access are Dunning Spring Falls and Siewer Spring Falls, both in Decorah, IA.
Other waterfalls along this route are Malanaphy Falls, outside of Decorah, Bridal Veil Falls in Pike’s Peak State Park, and Beulah Falls near Spook Cave. Please be aware that Bridal Veil Falls will require a short hike on a well marked path, but Malanaphy Falls will require a 1 mile hike through fairly rough terrain. The view is worth the hike.
The terrain in this part of Iowa is widely varied. Experience the bluffs along the Mississippi and the rolling hills as you move west away from the river. This route picks its way through the various hill formations as it connects to the different waterfalls. It also follows the Great River Road from Marquette, Iowa to Lansing, Iowa.
Be sure to check out the views from Mt. Hosmer Park in Lansing or at Pikes Peak State Park.
