The Cedar River Greenbelt Trail Network consists of the Cedar Valley and Harry Cook trails, plus the Spring Park Connection. The Cedar River Greenbelt is a 4 mile limestone trail that parallels the west side of the Cedar River from Interstate Park at Mitchell to Falk’s Wildlife Area, 1.5 miles west of Osage at the Mitchell County Headquarters and Cedar Bridge Park location. The trails run largely parallel to the Cedar River and a variety of trees, plants and wildlife can be observed along the trails. The trails are separated by a half-mile gap. Trail users need to cross the Highway 9 bridge and travel on Spring Park Road to reach Spring Park and the Harry Cook Trail, which winds along the Cedar River and Sugar Creek.
