This scenic, 22-mile gravel loop starts and finishes at Waldo Rock Park (6303 Partners Ave, Marion, IA 52302) on the historic Grant Wood Trail and then around some of the most challenging yet visually rewarding roads in our rural backyard.

Wickiup Hills

Toddville, Iowa , United States | 18 mi

Roll out from the Wickiup Hill Learning Center parking lot for a luxurious 18-mile Cedar River Valley gravel figure-8 loop that's sure to work those climbing muscles and soak in some of the best rural views while you're at it.

Hennessey Quarry Gravel Loop

Our weekly no-drop gravel group ride leaves from the shop at 6:15 pm every Thursday.
