The Hike To This Pretty Little Iowa Waterfall Is Short And Sweet

When most people think of Iowa, they don’t realize just how much our landscape varies. We aren’t just a state of cornfields! If you’re looking for a scenic place to explore in the Hawkeye State, embark on a short Iowa waterfall hike to Malanaphy Springs Falls in Decorah.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

While you’re in the area, be sure to check out the Decorah Ice Cave and Dunning Spring Falls, which both require minimal hiking. It’s easy to tackle Malanaphy Springs, the Ice Cave, and Dunning Spring all in one day.
