Backbone Hosting Lake Loop Route Tours & Trail Run

Backbone State Park will be the site for a couple of events coming up this fall.

The Lake Loop Route Tours will be held Sunday, September 18th and again on Sunday, October 2nd, giving you a chance to learn about route marking, hazards and interesting history and facts about Iowa’s oldest state park. You can choose from the noon or 3 pm time slots and the pace will be leisurely, so plan for a one and a half hour to three hour tour. Meet in front of the concession building at the Beach and bring your own water and supplies. 

And runners – mark your calendars for the Backbone Trail Run set for Saturday, October 8th.

Tune in for more details on Thursday, September 29th at 8:10 am – Roger Helmrichs from the Friends of Backbone will join us as our Guest of the Day to tell us more about it.
