Cedar Valley Nature Trail

The Cedar Trails Partnership http://www.cedartrailspartnership.org/ is a network of more than 100 miles of hard-surfaced trails in central Iowa. Configured in a series of loops, the trails wind through Black Hawk County, Iowa, and several metropolitan areas. The routes offer experiences ranging from peaceful woods along lakes and streams to entertainment, dining, shops and bars in vibrant and historic downtowns. The system connects to northern Cedar Rapids via the Cedar Valley Nature Trail, one of the nation’s very first rail trails. The 52 mile Cedar Valley Nature Trail connects Evansdale with Hiawatha and runs through several small towns. The trail’s surface is asphalt from Evansdale to McFarlane Park, just 2½ south of La Porte City.  From the Park to Hiawatha, the trail’s surface is compacted limestone. The Cedar Valley Nature Trail runs through wetlands, forested land, and farmland. The Cedar Valley Nature Trail Connects the Linn County Metro area to Waterloo, IA.
