A German Tradition that began in the mid-1960s, Volkmarch has become a favorite pastime in Germany.  Our Volksmarch is September 22nd, the Sunday following Apfelfest.  We will hike the Amana Colonies Nature Trail located just outside of Homestead.  The walk is about 3.2 miles and leads you to the bluff overlooking the Iowa River.  The Indian Dam (pictured) is located below the bluff but due to the changing river and flooding in past years, the Indian Dam is no longer visible.

Hikers looking for a shorter route are in luck as there several options on this trail but all take you through the beautiful Homestead Timber.

Many hikers will want to enjoy a picnic lunch at the bluff and the Amana Meat Shop will have yours ready for you.  Call 319-622-7586 to place your order.  The Lunch is only $8 per person.

Come join us as we hike the timber on September 22nd from 11am-2pm.


This event is weather dependent and may be canceled due to rain.  Please check facebook for any late announcements.
