Star Bike Trail
The Shooting Star Bike trail is approximately 20 miles long stretching from LeRoy through Taopi and Adams and now to Rose Creek! Plans are being made to extend the trail to Austin to the Hormel Nature Center in 2015. The paved bike trail wanders through Lake Louise State Park along the Upper Iowa River and through several woods. It then turns into open prairie and along some crop fields. This bike trail will definitely give you a variety of landscapes. Start your ride at the Trail Head located north-east of the high school football field.

Lake Louise State Park
Lake Louise State Park offers seasonal camping (both semi-modern and primitive) along with many miles of hiking trails. The park also has horse trails and a horse camping area. A swimming beach and picnic shelter can serve as the perfect setting for a family gathering or picnic. Bring your fishing pole or canoe and check out all that Lake Louise has to offer! The Shooting Star Trail also meanders through the park. The trail, perfect for bikers, rollerbladers, or hikers, was featured on the 2003 annual state park permit.
