The Cedar Prairie Trail is an important component of the extensive trail system in Cedar Falls, Iowa. The paved pathway runs between the South Riverside Trail at Waterloo Road and the Sergeant Road Trail along Sergeant Road/US 63, just north of Shaulis Road (south of Cedar Falls). Near its midpoint, the trail connects to the Greenhill Trail and the Prairie Lakes Trail, providing further opportunities to explore and allowing you to do a loop around the area via trail. The trail travels over gently rolling hills and past a few suburban neighborhoods and light industrial areas before entering the lushly wooded Black Hawk Creek corridor. The Cedar Prairie Trail enables cyclists and pedestrians to travel through the beautiful Iowa landscape from the heart of Cedar Falls to the rural outskirts of town, where even more trails await to allow you to continue your journey.
Access the Cedar Prairie Trail at the southern end from the Sergeant Road Trail and at the northern end from the South Riverside Trail (no parking at either end). You can park in the cul-du-sac at the end of Main Street (south of Greenhill Road) and toward the northern end at Round Park off Main Street just south of SR 58/27.
Parking and restrooms are also available at the trailhead in Nordic Ridge Park at the intersection of Quesada Avenue and Kael Trail, where the trail intersects with the Prairie Lakes Trail.
