The Eastern Iowa Hiking Group explores a wide variety of hiking trails from April to October. The Eastern Iowa Hiking Group continues to welcome new hikers who want to make new friends/continue existing friendships, enjoy the outdoors and have fun. We schedule two to four hikes per month primarily on the weekends. Our hikes cover all of eastern Iowa, southwest Wisconsin, northwest and central Illinois. Our hikes are open to the public and all ages are welcome. The trails are of varying degrees of difficulty, and most trails are pet-friendly.
