Mississippi Riverfront Trail

The Mississippi River Trail, coursing along America’s backbone, the Mississippi River, from its headwaters in Itasca, Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico, offers approximately 3,000 miles of on-road bikeways and pedestrian and bicycle pathways for the recreational enjoyment, health, conservation and tourism development of river communities, river states, and the nation. The Riverfront Trail follows the Mississippi River in Davenport and Bettendorf to Credit Island Park. A segment of this trail circles Credit Island Park. Duck Creek Parkway, serving as the lifeline of the Davenport/Bettendorf park and recreation system, is a 12-mile urban greenbelt located in one of Iowa’s oldest cities. It provides a wide variety of scenic and recreational opportunities as it meanders through native woodlands, wetlands, urban housing areas, two golf courses and eight city parks. The asphalt/concrete surface extends over flat and gently rolling terrain, making it an ideal experience for all age groups. The multi-use trail follows the Duck Creek tributary from Emeis Park, in Davenport, to an area north of Devil’s Glen Park, in Bettendorf.
