This Intense Hike Through the Mines Of Spain Is Iowa’s Best Kept Secret
This is one of Iowa’s best hiking spots. There are 12 miles of maintained hiking trails, and no requirement that you stay on them. Five individual nature walks are inside the park. You’ll see limestone bluffs, winding logging roads, prairie, forests, and scenic overlooks. If steep and challenging terrain is what you look for in a hike, you’ve found your match at the Mines of Spain in Dubuque.
Have you hiked here yet? If not, what are you waiting for?
