The Iowa River Corridor Trail spans almost 14 miles of beautiful rolling countryside while visiting Iowa City, Coralville and North Liberty along the way. Featuring beautiful river views and scenic city parks, this multi-use trail has distinct segments and is the longest and most heavily used trail in Iowa City.
Beginning on the southern end of the trail, Terry Trueblood Recreation Area serves as the trail head before heading north along the shaded shoreline of the Iowa River. Crossing Ralston Creek, the trail continues several miles through the majestic University of Iowa campus. Riders may want to cross the river via the pedestrian bridge to explore the historic downtown district of Iowa City.
Continuing north to City Park, the trail moves away from the river and heads west, where riders can choose to continue on Foster Road through the grounds of the Elks Lodge and golf course to Crandic Park or to take Mackinaw Drive through residential streets, picking up the trail along the river once again at Waterworks Prairie Park.
From here, the trail continues north on Dubuque Street into North Liberty, a suburb of Iowa City.
