Mormon Trek/Coralville Strip Nature Trail Description

Passing over the same ground that Mormon pioneers once crossed on their way out west, the Mormon Trek/Coralville Strip Nature Trail provides a welcome dose of historical reflection and natural beauty along its relatively short route. The paved trail runs through a scenic, tree-lined corridor behind the series of athletic fields that marks the western edge of the campus of the University of Iowa, giving students and visitors a way to disappear into the outdoors without having to look far afield.

The trail is a popular spot among the local bird-watching community, hosting a number of species including hawks and woodpeckers. For those looking for a longer walk or ride, connections are available via sidewalks from the western end of the trail to the Clear Creek Trail, an integral part of the area's network of multi-use trails. The Lower Finkbine Trail also intersects the nature trail on the eastern end, which acts as an important commuting and transportation link for neighborhoods to the south of campus.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at the softball complex lot at the western end of the trail, located off of 1st Avenue. Parking is also available at the eastern end of the trail on the university campus, with several lots located off of Hawkins Drive - campus shuttle stops at the Carver Hawkeye Arena and the Finkbine Entrance also provide convenient access to the trail.
