Features River/Creek · Wildflowers · Wildlife

Family Friendly It is the most family friendly within this system of trails. It is hard to get lost on this trail despite lots of twists and turns. Strollers will not work on this trail.

Due to nearby lakes and rivers, this trail system tends to flood late spring each year. If the trail system says closed, do not enter and return after the trail has had adequate time to dry. The CITA (Central Iowa Trail Association) website will have updates about all area closures.

Description

This easy section of trail follows closely along the river. It floods frequently and it is composed of dirt, clay, and sand. It is all singletrack and has some twists and turns, but very little in the way of elevation change. Keep an eye out for some of the full-time residents of the park on this trail!

Flora & Fauna

There are wild flowers, eagles, owls, deer, chipmunks, raccoons, squirrels, foxes, and an occasional coyote or wild cats. Beware of the poison ivy.
