The Manchester Walkway/Bikeway Trails are a network of concrete paths that form a disconnected circuit around the small city of Manchester, Iowa. The pathway provides a great opportunity for cyclists and pedestrians to experience a wide array of environments around the city, from the frothy rapids along the Maquoketa River to the great swaths of open cornfields and farmland to the city's east and north.
Much of the trail functions as a wide sidepath, running along the sides of roads on the periphery of the city. The longest stretch of pathway runs between Manchester's Baum Park, a pleasant neighborhood park, and the large sports complex for the area's schools, located on the northeastern edge of town. Sidewalks and signed bike routes can help trail users fill in the gaps between the wider sidepath segments.
Parking is available in downtown Manchester, just north of the city's Riverfront Park & Gazebo, west from the intersection of Franklin Street & Delaware Street.
