The Wolf Creek Trail begins in Gladbrook, a small city about 70 miles northeast of Des Moines. The trail was established in 2001 by volunteers from the Gladbrook community who secured the right-of-way of the former Chicago Northwestern Railroad, as well as other adjacent land. From the north side of town, the trail continues 2.6 miles northwest along Wolf Creek through both wooded and open areas. It ends at AA Avenue, where you can hop on the Comet Trail, a 6-mile rail-trail that extends further west into Grundy County. Combined, these two trails connect the towns of Gladbrook, Beaman and Conrad, as well as the Wolf Creek Recreation Area. The trail consists primarily of a crushed limestone surface, with the exception of two segments that have an asphalt surface.
