Backbone State Park
Submitted by: Ash Burton
DescriptionDuring the summer, very thick vegetation makes it difficult to see more than 10 feet into the woods, but there's quite a bit of rock to explore here. Some good rocks to boulder, TR and difficult cracks for trad.
Getting ThereJust south of Strawberry Point, IA.
