Hoover Nature Trail

Hoover Nature Trail at Chinkapin is OPEN!! Check out the newly resurfaced 2-mile long trail.  (Note - it is 2-miles long so it is 4-miles if you walk down and back, the entire trail)

Louisa County Conservation manages three sections of developed trail: 2 miles that bisect Chinkapin Bluffs Recreation Area just outside of Columbus Junction; 1.6 acres near Morning Sun; and 1 mor mile west of the Indian Hills Golf and Country Club. 

In addition Louisa County owns 6 segments of undeveloped trail comprising a total of about 4.2 miles between Morning Sun and the Muscatine County line near Conesville.  Total public land ownership totals 8.8 miles along the 16.8 mile corridor.

The trail has a gravel base with mowed grass on top.  Hiking and biking are allowed, no motorized vehicles
