Just past this bridge there are two downed bridges. They have been down since June of 08 after flood rains. I head through a small field at the end of this bridge, and ride gravel to the town of Graf Iowa and pick up Heritage trail there. Love it.
I ride a small stretch oh Highway52 north of Dubuque, this is where I get to turn off and stay on gravel/dirt. It is a relief to get off the pavement, and cars flying by, and catch the serenity of country side.
