While you might have to look a bit far afield to find any living reefs near the city of Coralville, Iowa, you don't have to look far to find a nice trail for biking and walking, thanks to the Coral Ridge Avenue Trail. The city, which gets its name from the limestone coral fossils found along the Iowa River, completed an overhaul of the busy Coral Ridge Avenue in 2019, which included the extension of a concrete sidepath trail along the west side of the road.
The trail helps provide an off-road connection between the relatively isolated subdivisions and shopping centers that line its namesake roadway, located just north off of Interstate 80. The suburban nature of the trail means that it has only limited scenic appeal and there's little shade to be had, although the trail is pleasantly flat and does run past some open fields on the northern end. Trail users can also connect at either end of the trail to the lengthy North Ridge Trail, which parallels the Coral Ridge Avenue Trail to the east and offers a somewhat more secluded trail experience, and also offers a way to span the gap between the trail and the Ranshaw Way Trail, which continues along the same corridor further north in the community of North Liberty.
No dedicated trail parking is available, but parking may be available at businesses along the trail's route on Coral Ridge Avenue. Be sure to follow any posted parking signs and regulations. The trail is located just north from exit 240 off of Interstate 80.
