From the Iowa West Foundation Council Bluffs Trailhead to approximately Margaritaville, there is an off-road multi-use trail that runs parallel to the Wabash Trace. The trail is approved for use by hikers, mountain bikers, and equestrians. There are bridge crossings where the off-road trail must share bridges with the main trail.
As with the main trail, off-road users are encouraged to be cautious when conditions are wet to avoid damage to the surface. Equestrians are not allowed on the crushed limestone surface, except where they must cross bridges.
Although common rule is that bikers should yield to equestrians, please be prepared to yield to anyone in order to prevent injury. Also, please avoid using the trail at all on Thursday evenings, during the peak time for the Taco Ride to Mineola.
Anyone wanting specific information should contact Margine Henry or Tim Edwards. Please see the TROTT (Trail Riders Of The Trace) Brochure below, or download a PDF of it here.
