Pingora Ankeny to Pingora Jester Park, lots of gravel in between. I’d recommend this route and both stores. I’d also recommend riding more bikes in general. @kylesbikes @pingoraoutdoors #ridebikes #bikes #gravel #gravelbike #outside #iowaoutdoors #iowaparks #iowagravel #crux #specializedcrux #specialized #notrunning #ultimatedirection
Our friend @bearthimages captured this fun moment of an elk at Jester Park. Check out those teeth! 👀 #LeadingYouOutdoors
Lake Geode was looking pretty mystical last night! #iowaparks #statepark #lakegeode
Teddy loves to go hiking with Jeanie and Chris. We are attempting to visit all of the state parks in Iowa, but Teddy’s not a picky pug. He’s just happy to be outside! As we post our adventures, try to guess where we are. #wheresteddy

Most people associate elk (or wapiti) with the Rocky Mountains but don't realize elk once lived in Iowa. They were most common on prairies in the western two-thirds of the state. However, early reports give the impression that elk were more abundant than bison in Iowa. [Photo by @wildlifeofbryan ] #LeadingYouOutdoors
Some days, every trail you choose just ends up in the river. 🤷🏻‍♀️ #stillflooded #sycamoretrails #iowaparks #desmoinesriver
Woah. We've now got nearly 100 sites, parks, and exhibits that highlight archaeology on one interactive Google Map! The link in our bio will lead you to the map - it's embedded on our homepage! Find museums with archaeological exhibits, hike an archeological state preserve, explore archaeological sites and parks with visitor services, or take a road-side stop to visit other recorded archaeological sites. These sites are all open to the public and many are on our public lands! To celebrate all these new outreach projects and to give you a chance to participate in Iowa Archaeology Month, we're creating a social media contest, happening now through the end of Iowa Archaeology Month, October 20. Watch the comments for details! (If you or your organization manages an archaeological site or exhibits open to the public, please direct message us to find out how to get your site on the map -- Thanks!) #iowa #iowaarchaeology #archaeology #pubarch #exploreiowa #traveliowa #publiclands #museums #exhibits #iowaparks #archaeologytour
Join us as we tackle the trash in and along Yeader Creek, as well as invasive species and litter removal in Ewing Park. Don't forget to register for our event - registration is free! But we would like to have an idea of how many awesome volunteers we are expecting. Link in bio! Thanks to @polkcountyconservation , @cityofdesmoinespublicworks , @polkswcdiowa , @easterlake_watershedproject for putting this project together to celebrate #nationalpubliclandsday ! Hope to see you there!
My brave little boy wanted to do the zip line at the park without my help. I definitely have a fearless kid lol. I love how much he enjoyed it ❤️❤️. #bravekid #fearlesskid #ziplining #lovehimsomuch #iowa #iowaparks #toddler #toddlerlife
We had a fun and adventurous Sunday afternoon at Geode State Park yesterday. The weather was too gorgeous to spend the entire day inside. #geodestatepark #lakegeode #trails #getoutside #trail #statepark #iowa #iowaparks #iowatrails #explore #freshair
No nap day. Chose something on “the list” and ventured out. Pretty drive. Happy toddler. Happy momma. Plus I got my cabin fix for the day. #exploreiowa #toddleradventures #iowaparks
I did it! I walked across this scary bridge! #edenvalley #biggirlscanmove #iowaparks

We love the parks near our house. It’s been raining a lot lately so last night when it was so great out walking Wilbur I just had to take a picture. No filter, no edits either, just that beautiful in real life. #shotoniphone #nofilter #getoutside #iowaoutdoors #sunset #iowaparks
We're getting Glow Wild ready! Are you?! Purchase your tickets today! [Link in profile] #GlowWildIowa #LeadingYouOutdoors
We noticed the east game area at Hickory Grove Park wasn’t dewatering along with the rest of the lake during this partial drawdown period - sometimes you’ve got to put on your waders and improvise! A thumb’s up from staff as they finish installing a tube to help get things moving 💦 If you’re out at the park please leave these in place so they can do their thing. Visit our website for more info about the lake restoration project. #lakerestoration #waterquality #outdoorrecreation #hickorygrovelake #iowaparks
Wednesday: Name this Park in Johnston. What is the name of this park and where is it located? #cityparks #cityofjohnston #iowaparks #parksandrecreation #parks #parksandrec #crosshavenpark
Thinking about heading outdoors this weekend? This Charles City park is next to the naturalized play area! This connects to the Riverfront trail labyrinth and public art pieces. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Just another reason why we love #CharlesCity ! #stewartrealtycompany #charlescitywhitewater #naturalizedplayground #riverfronttrail #iowaparks #august #northeastiowa

Waiting patiently for a friend to bring your kayak back so you can get out on the water where you belong. Phineas, my water averse border collie, was the first to settle in for a kayak ride. #optoutside #dogsinkayaks #iowa #iowadogs #ilovemydogs #muttsofinstagram #rescuedogs #iowaparks #nineeaglesstatepark
In the park and decided to get a few in with the Sony. #godox , #iowa , #iowaparks
