Next Outing - Backbone State Park, Strawberry Point, Iowa. May 13 - 15, 2022

Dedicated in 1920 as Iowa’s first state park, Backbone State Park is one of the most geographically unique locations in Iowa. The steep and narrow ridge of bedrock from the Maquoketa River forms the highest point in northeast Iowa - The Devil’s Backbone - giving the park its legendary name. We will check out history by visiting the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) museum, explore the rugged 21-mile multi-use trail system. the park also has Iowa’s best trout streams.
