ENJOY DUBUQUE-AREA BIKE TRAILS

LOCAL FAVORITES

HERITAGE TRAIL

Explore the Upper Midwest’s most scenic all-season trail. Follow the 30-mile route of a once-bustling railroad into a 450-foot deep valley, past old mining and mill towns. Discover the rugged beauty that welcomes thousands of bicyclists and hikers each year.

BEE BRANCH

The Bee Branch trail system connects to attractions on Dubuque’s six miles of riverfront and to the Mines of Spain trail system. It also links to hundreds of miles of bike trails north and south along the Mississippi River and west to the Field of Dreams on the Heritage Trail.

BERGFELD POND & TRAIL

Nestled amidst the suburban landscape on the western outskirts of Dubuque, the Bergfeld Recreation Area is a 30-acre park with playgrounds, fishing, and almost two miles of paved asphalt for a short bike ride.
