Trailside Attractions - Center Grove Orchard

On a recent visit to Center Grove Orchard I realized how close this fall treasure is from the Heart of Iowa Nature Trail.

The orchard is only 1 mile south from the trail on gravel. There are no big hills to climb and there doesn’t look to be any dogs at the farmsteads along the way.

7 minutes isn’t much of a detour!

Center Grove has a gift shop and snack bar area that does not require admission to visit. The Country Store makes for a great bike break. There’s warm donuts, apples, coffee and more.
