This route takes riders on a tour of most of the communities of Allen County — Iola, Humboldt, Elsmore, Savonburg, Moran, Mildred, La Harpe, and Gas. The route is completely paved (except for the section on the Southwind Rail Trail).
The route heads east through Iola, before continuing on rural paved roads through Gas and La Harpe, heading northeasterly to the town of Mildred before swinging south through Moran, Elsmore, and Savonburg, before heading back west to Humboldt, then north to Iola via the Southwind Rail Trail.
There are refuel options in Gas, Mildred, Moran, Elsmore, and Humboldt.
This is a self-guided and self-supported route, so be sure to bring everything you’ll need to be reasonably self-sufficient — water, snacks, flat repair, and a cell phone.
If you use a GPS cyclocomputer or a smartphone app that can handle GPX files, you can download the GPS Track to your computer, then upload it to your device. Most devices will provide turn-by-turn directions to allow you to easily follow the route without worrying about missing turns or getting lost.
