One of Iowa’s newest Water Trails has recently been established on Middle River in Adair and Madison County.
The trail begins in eastern Adair County at their Middle River Forest County Park and meanders downstream, covering approximately 45 river miles, and currently ends at the historic Holliwell Covered Bridge located approximately 3 ½ miles southeast of Winterset.

Canoe, Kayak and Tube rentals available from Middle River Rentals.

Accesses, and descriptions of the river sections between each access, are listed and described in detail at www.madisoncountyconservation.org/water-trail/.
