This Beautiful Hike In Iowa Has A Mouthwatering Restaurant Right Along The Trail

It can be hard to find the energy to get out and exercise when winter rolls around, but luckily, Iowa’s got some great motivators! Take the Wabash Trace Nature Trail, for instance. Not only is this one of the most beautiful trails in Iowa, but a short trek or bike ride will take you to one of our finest small town restaurants.

It’s easy to find a trailhead along the Wabash Trace Nature Trail, but if you’re looking to join the Taco Ride, head to the intersection of Highway 92 and Highway 275, near Lewis Central School. Scenic countryside soon takes over your view, and soon you’ll be at Margaritaville! From there, it’s all downhill until Mineola, where you’ll easily find the steakhouse at 408 Main St, Mineola, IA 51554, just a few blocks off the trail.
