Allamakee County is tucked away in northeast Iowa. It is home to one of the most picturesque destinations in the heart of America. The Mississippi River provides a stunning backdrop all year long. The four seasons are abundant and include a spectacular fall season. Several historic towns await your visit within the county, along with numerous outdoor activities. I hope you will be inspired to visit this corner of Iowa, as it's truly a beautiful place.

Yellow River State Forest
The Yellow River State Forest is home to more than 8,000 acres and award-winning trails. Hikers, equestrians, snowmobilers, and cross-country skiers enjoy the numerous trails in the state forest. Kayakers will appreciate the water trail as well. The forest offers a wide variety of plant and animal life, including more than 65 species of birds. When you visit, be sure you have your binoculars in hand, as the birding is outstanding. Fishing and hunting are also popular in the Yellow River Forest. Dress in layers, as the weather can change rapidly during all four seasons. In my opinion, the best time of year to visit is in the fall. The fall colors are stunning, and the weather is still fairly nice. There is no fee to enter this state forest.

BIKEIOWA Note: Several trails in Yellow River State Forest are open for mountain biking.
