Old O'Brien Glacial Trail
Linn Grove is along the route of a newly designated Iowa Scenic Byway (07/11/00). This scenic byway is a 36-mile loop that traverses the corners of four counties. The route begins in Clay County at the intersection of Iowa 10 and County Road M-36. It then proceeds south through Linn Grove to County Road C-16 in Buena Vista County; west to County Road M-12 in Cherokee County; and north to Iowa 10 in O’Brien County. From there, it proceeds east through Peterson to its point of origin.

The Little Sioux River & the Inkpaduta Canoe Trail
from Spencer to Smithland, the Inkpaduta Canoe Trail follows the meandering Little Sioux River through six northwest Iowa counties, including Cherokee. This river is the largest interior stream of the Missouri River watershed in Iowa, draining more than 3,100 square miles. The Little Sioux offers the canoeist excellent fishing and scenic opportunities. It is a typical prairie stream, sharply meandering with a sand, mud and gravel bottom, and high mud banks throughout most of its course. The river current is quite slow, as the rate of fall averages only two feet per mile. The stream rarely exceeds 100 feet in width. Whether you are interested in a 2-3 day canoe-camping trip, or simply a 3-4 hour leisurely float, the Inkpaduta Canoe Trail offers numerous recreational opportunities, combined with a variety of local history.
