Excitement regarding the new bike trail extension from Harmony to the Iowa border continues to grow as land for the trail route was secured at the end of 2019 by the city of Harmony. The route will extend the Harmony-Preston Valley Trail south of Harmony, running 6 miles to the Iowa state border with a branch leading to Niagara Cave.

This will greatly benefit local bikers and add miles to the already-existing Root River Trail and the Blufflands trail system in southeast Minnesota. This extension will also likely serve as a connection to the 115-mile trail system in northeastern Iowa in the future.


The trail construction and expected completion will take place in 2021. The closest Iowa towns where the trail will enter Iowa are are Kendallville and Florenceville.


“It’s really exciting to see this project come together after so many years of work by so many different people,” Giesen said. “We are looking forward to the trail’s anticipated completion in 2021 and continued partnership with our counterparts in Iowa to complete all planned trail connections.”
