Mines of Spain offers Trek With a Tech

DUBUQUE, IA-

The Mines of Spain recently began offering guided hikes through a new program called Trek with a Tech. Each week, hikers venture on a different trail, where a park technician leads and offers historical and environmental knowledge. The program started after Park Technician Jenny Stromberg felt that people weren’t using the trails due to being unfamiliar with and uncomfortable navigating them on their own.┬áThe program is an effort to get people familiar with the trails and enable them to return and share the trails with others in the future.┬áThere are plans to continue Trek with a Tech, as well as expand other programs out onto the trails.
