Beginning just outside the city of Dubuque — county seat and tri-state urban hub — Dubuque County offers connected, stunning system of outdoor recreation and natural exploration opportunities.

Heritage Trail

The natural connectivity on display in Dubuque County continues with planned connections via this popular trail.

The 26-mile former railroad line stretches from Dubuque’s North End west to Dyersville, connecting many of the county’s communities, with a shady gravel walk.

Cyclists, hikers, joggers and equestrians have grown to love this path through railroad cuts, along and over creeks on a dozen bridges, through working farmland, prairie and dense woodland alike. The path is small chipped gravel, so easy on the feet, and a great place to beat the summer heat.
