    City of Osage

The Harry Cook Nature Trail runs for 2 miles from the edge of the small city of Osage, Iowa to the city's public Spring Park. The trail, which opened in the early 1990s, occupies the bed of an abandoned railroad corridor and winds through dense tree cover. For most of its route, the trail runs adjacent to Cedar River. Bring your fishing gear and good luck and you might catch walleye, channel catfish or smallmouth bass.

Access Info

Parking can be found at Spring Park at the western end of the Harry Cook Nature Trail. The park has a large picnic area and bathrooms, as well as a primitive camping area. You may also park at the dog park on South 1st Street in Osage, Iowa.
