Indian Creek Trail (IA) Description

The Indian Creek Trail in Council Bluffs runs north along Indian Creek from busy US 275—where it meets the Veterans Memorial Trail and Lake Manawa Trail—to the southwestern edge of Sunset Park on 16th Avenue. The trail uses a tunnel to avoid a dangerous crossing of Interstate 29/80. Along this portion of the trail, the scenery is a mix of residences, industrial properties and scenic views of tiny Indian Creek.

Another section of the Indian Creek Trail travels north from Sunset Park to the active railroad tracks behind the houses on 14th Avenue, while a third segment cuts diagonally southeast from Sunset Park through residential neighborhoods on an abandoned Wabash Railroad corridor.

Be sure to stop at Joseph Katelman Water Park in Sunset Park for a dip in the pool, or bring a tennis racket or baseball glove and make use of the recreational facilities at Sunset Park.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking for the Indian Creek Trail can be found at Sunset Park/Joseph Katelman Water Park on S. 12th Street between 15th and 16th Avenues.
