    Does the Missippi River Trail extend from Burlington to Keokuk?

    when I did the Mississippi River Trail a lot of that section was on the 4 lane Highway 61. That will probably be the vehicle route so extra heavy traffic. It took the old highway by the river in Ft Madison and that is a busy road, pretty much their main street through town, From Montrose to Keokuk looks like we are on it

    From Montrose to Keokuk the route will be on River Road(I am fairly certain) which is NOT 61.
