Big Sioux River Trail Description

Located on the eastern end of Sioux City, where the Big Sioux River forms the snaky boundary between Iowa and South Dakota, the Big Sioux River Trail provides the opportunity for trail users to enjoy some recreation and a slice of nature right in the heart of some of the area's residential communities. The paved trail follows a tranquil section of riverfront from River Drive in the north down to the city's sprawling Riverside Park, which is host to a huge variety of playgrounds, athletic fields, and recreational amenities. Riverside Park also marks the beginning of the Sioux City Riverfront Trail, which continues for over five miles along the Big Sioux and then the Missouri River, providing a convenient pathway into downtown Sioux City and offering gorgeous river views along the way.

The Big Sioux River Trail marks another important asset in the area's developing network of off-road trails, which continues to grow every year. A bench along the trail, north of Riverside Park, is dedicated to the memory of local trail advocate Brian Goetz, who was instrumental in the development of this and many other trails around Sioux City. Together with its sibling trails, the Big Sioux River Trail offers a great way to explore the lovely riverfronts that define the landscape.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking and restrooms are available within Riverside Park, which is located at 1301 Riverside Boulevard in Sioux City. Additional parking is available towards the northern end of the trail in nearby Goldie Beck Park, at the intersection of Wright Avenue and Beck Street.
