Interstate Power Company Forest Preserve Trail is a 2.1 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near La Motte, Iowa that features a great forest setting and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is accessible year-round. Dogs are also able to use this trail.
it was a beautiful day in February with unseasonably warm temperatures. The trail does have steep inclines but generally meanders through the woods for a nice walk. There are a number of Boy Scout Eagle award project benches along the trail. The preserve has a lot of wild life and we counted 8 different types of birds.
