Day 2 (Friday, September 6)
From Pisgah, riders will head west on a blacktop road to Murray Hill, home to one of the most scenic overlooks in the Loess Hills. From here, you’ll visit the towns of Little Sioux and River Sioux, then follow the Missouri River Valley into Mondamin. A few miles past Mondamin is Small’s Fruit Farm, a great place to stop and enjoy some fruit and juice! Next, you’ll head south again following Loess Hills Trail, hugging the base of the bluffs into the town of Missouri Valley, where the Boyer Valley meets the Mighty Mo.
Continuing southward out of Missouri Valley, riders will pass through the unincorporated communities of Loveland and Honey Creek. After one final hill, the day will end at the beautiful Hitchcock Nature Center, managed by Pottawattamie County Conservation Board.
