Mahaska Community Recreation Trail Description

The Mahaska Community Recreation Trail wraps around the southeast Iowan city, winding through neighborhoods, farmlands, community parks, and woodlands. Construction of the trail began in 1999 and to date, 12 of the proposed 15 miles of concrete trail have been completed. The trail hits many points of interest in town, making it valuable for safe commuting as well as recreation. Additionally, intersections with local streets are marked by underpasses, eliminating the interruption of street-level crossing. Points of interest along the trail include the Lacey Recreation Complex in the northwest of the city, featuring athletic facilities for sports including baseball, softball, football and soccer. The park also serves as a trailhead for the Recreation Trail. Another trailhead can be found directly south of that at Edmundson Park which has a pool and a golf course. The trail also connects either directly or is in very close proximity to schools, colleges (William Penn University and Indian Hills Community College), and the George Daly Community Auditorium. Connections between built segments of the trail can be made using sidewalks.

Apart from hosting walkers, joggers, bicyclists and other non-motorized users, the trail is also the route for a Trail Tram Tour between May and October.

good trail

For the most part this is a great trail. The bottom section towards university park is roads and not marked vary well hard to find the trail. To find go to the park (university park) ride East past park trail is on the left. Once back on the trail is easy to stay on.
