Volga River State Recreation Area Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"In the 1960s the Iowa Department of Natural Resources bought land around Frog Hollow Creek, a tributary of the Volga River, to create a large lake for recreational purposes. Because of cracks in the underlying bedrock, the lake never came to be.
Instead the Volga River State Recreation Area was established, offering 25 miles of multiuse trails and canoe access to the Volga River. Trails take you through weathered bluffs, along the floodplains of the creek and river, and past several recovering grasslands and savannas. With room to roam and loop trails to choose among, the area offers hikes of varying length and difficulty."
