Type: Rail Trail

Length: 21 miles

Surface: Paved

This trail is paved with many of the road and lane crossing paved as well. The bridge approaches are in good shape. The only problem is a lot of leaves and walnuts on the trail in the fall.


Above Average

Grade - Flat



The T-Bone Trail stretches nearly 20 miles between Audubon and Pymosa township in western Iowa. The paved pathway follows a former railroad right-of-way and offers beautiful countryside views. On the trail's north end in Audubon is Albert the Bull Park; if you have the time, don't miss checking out its 45-ton, 30-foot-tall cow sculpture! (source)

This trail does have a washout about 3 miles south of Brayton. You have to ride about 1/2 mile on highway 71. It does appear that this is being worked on.

This is an excellent trail ride. Would love it more if the pass thru towns had a little more to offer. Audubon has quite a history, couple museums and nice town square and of course Albert the Bull! We rode from the rural "trail head" south of the Lorah Cemetery - there are like 3 spots to park in the shade. Also the trail is around 2/3 covered by shade.

Tons of wild plums, patriotic touches, and Albert The Bull made my first visit to this trail a fun one despite the wet weather. This trail needs to be on your "must ride" list! A complete review of my ride is over at Happy Riding!
