Cedar Valley Nature Trail

Wonderful trail

August, 2018 by ekman.carla

This is a local trail for us so we ride it frequently. We normally ride from Ely to check village in Cedar Rapids or from Hiawatha to Center point. When we ride in Cedar Rapids in Hiawatha there are quite a few streets to cross that are fairly busy. This can slow you down a little bit and you need to be extremely cautious. We have never ridden past Center point so I don’t know what the trail is like after that however the trail is in excellent condition and a joy to ride from Ely to Center Point

Prairie Farmer Recreational Trail

Peaceful and clean

July, 2018 by al67gto

This was an awesome ride. It was well groomed and you can tell that the people that maintain this trail care about it. We had a picnic at Ridgeway and rode to Calmar for ice cream. But it was closed. Thankfully the restroom was open.

Rolling Prairie Trail

Rolling Prairie Trail

October, 2017 by harry.banks.75

A hard surface trail. We rode it in fall and saw lots of wildlife and beautiful leaves. The trail is washed out at the Shell Rock trail head and again just outside Clarksville, but both spots are navigable by walking the bikes. We especially enjoyed the Allison Restaurant where we had coffee and pie before starting the return trip. The waitress there was especially nice! All in all a very pleasant afternoon trip!

Cedar Valley Nature Trail

Evansdale to La Porte City

July, 2017 by emilyprochaska11

I headed south from Evansdale toward La Porte City. It's a good trail in the fact that it's flat so I didn't have to struggle with lots of hills like some other trails around the Cedar Valley. However there is a part of the trail closer to Evansdale that is gone in which you have to take your bike on a little dirt path to continue riding. There is also a bridge out closer to La Porte City. I hope they plan on fixing these issues so that the trail is in better shape.

Waverly Rail Trail

Great ride!!

July, 2017 by bheilskov

First time to try this trail- definitely will not be our last!! Nice surprise that we were able to make a 32 mile ride by staying on the trail all the way to Readlyn and then the leg to Denver. If you are looking for a place to stop- I would highly recommend The Sweet Spot ice cream shop In Denver-what yummy and unique treats!!!

Cedar Valley Lakes Trail

Waterloo/CF Trails

April, 2017 by dbhogan1

You won't meet your Waterloo here! Rather you will have the time of your life. As a Blackhawk County expatriate, I have ridden trails across dozens of states, and these trails rank among the best. Also They are a tribute which resonates with Waterloo Parks legend---- former parks director Leonard Katoski. They intersperse throughout his visionary Greenbelt which divides Waterloo Cedar Falls.
Again, all Blackhawk County trails leading any direction will result in biking bliss

Cedar Valley Nature Trail

Great trail for beginners to intermediate riders

April, 2017 by hlubbock

Just started riding a bike for the first time since I was 10 and this trail is very enjoyable

Cedar Valley Trail

October, 2016 by trailsguy88

This is a great trail for novice riders, or those getting into shape. It's an old rail trail, so it's flat. It's very scenic and a nice ride. There is trail damage from a recent flood and a section near Waterloo is completely washed out. It's closed there, but you can get through if you can carry your bike. I did almost 27 miles and greatly enjoyed it!

Wapsi-Great Western Line Trail

Area secret - nice trail

July, 2016 by jlvcats

Trail was more interesting than I was expecting. Seems like it's location probably keeps it a bit of a secret. I would definitely ride it again. Some more details below:
It had changing scenery including rural (fields doing well in July, Amish family farming, horses with foals), wooded areas (some tunnel-like with trees), deer crossed the path, many birds and other wildlife, long boardwalk/deck trail through wetland, all with mostly level grade with some curves and short hills for some variety. Several miles were actually concrete instead of asphalt (I've never encountered that on a public trail before).
Had the trail mostly to ourselves on a holiday. It is in great condition except for just a few minor spots that were marked.
Only "neutral" comments are that we started in Riceville at the trailhead, but the parking lot only contained 1 non-HC spot. However the street was bare so we simply parked on it. Don't know if it ever gets so busy where that would be a problem.
Signage is better than many trails, but couple times needed to look around a bit more to find which direction the trail continued (when crossing some gravel roads), had to shortly go onto some rural (low travel) roads for a bit, and then there is the one short section that requires riding on a country gravel road to "portage" to the trail. This gap was somewhere around 11 miles north of Riceville, so you could skip that and get a nice 22 mile round trip in witout it.

Comet Trail

Good trail for out and back

April, 2016 by gim820

This was my first time on the Comet Trail and won't be the last. Grundy County Conservation Board does a good job with this trail. I started in Gladbrook (Wolf Creek Trail - WCT) and joined up to the Comet Trail about 2 miles west of Gladbrook. The WCT is not a road bike or maybe even a hybrid bike trail---I rode a MTB with satisfactory results. It would be nice if they developed the WCT and removed the roller coaster effect and improved the surface with crushed limestone or better yet paved it to join up with the short stretch of paved trail at Gladbrook. There is limited canopy to block the wind or give shade. It would be a trying workout on a hot and windy day. There were lots of downed limbs and a deep eroded spot that likely will be dealt with before the run the end of May---hope so.

Wolf Creek Trail (IA)

Wolf Creek Trail

January, 2016 by donstorj

This trail was gifted to Tama Co. and they are in the process of redoing the bridge and regrading the trail approach on the NW edge of Gladbrook. When it is all done it will be an excellent place to walk/ride again. Don't give up on it and don't blame Gladbrook until you know the full story!

Cedar Prairie Trail

Paw Park

October, 2015 by noeljkelller

Found parking at Paw Park with facilities. Trail surface is in good condition. North from Paw Park is through Commercial area. South some shade & scenic to Prairie Lakes Park. Many unmarked side trails that can confuse. Great Mayor Bridge across SR58. Noel Keller 8 Sep 15
