Welcome to the Pioneer Trail! This trail was once an active railroad bed that served as a vital link to the largely agricultural communities of Holland, Grundy Center, Morrison, and Reinbeck. Today the trail stretches for 12 miles from Reinbeck to Holland connecting these four towns. The Pioneer Trail has a surface of crushed and compacted limestone. Outdoor recreation activities include hiking, running, bike riding, and cross country skiing. Horse back riding is allowed along a mowed grass trail that parallels the limestone trail. Activities that are prohibited are all motorized vehicles and hunting. There are eight conservation board areas that are easily accessible from the trail. These include the Holland Marsh, Wolfe Family Preserve, Shearn Park, Grundy County Heritage Museum, Buckles Wildlife Area, Gutknecht Park, Copley-Strohbehn Preserve, and the Reinbeck section of the Grundy County Greenbelt. Spend some time on the Pioneer Trail and enjoy all of nature's treasures including wildlife and native vegetation.
