The natural beauty found along the twists and turns of the Upper Iowa River is filled with diverse wildlife, limestone bluffs, chimney rocks, forested areas, cold water springs and more. This unique river was nominated to be one of the First National Wild and Scenic Rivers with the Department of the Interior.

Two popular canoe trips are from Chester to Lime Springs, 7.5 river miles, or from Lime Springs to Kendallville, 28 river miles. There are also many bridges in between where one could enter or exit the river.
