The Muddy Creek Trail is a paved, multi-use trail that runs through the suburban community of Coralville, following the route of the small creek through residential neighborhoods and lovely wooded land. The creek is a component of the Iowa River watershed, and provides a scenic natural corridor for the trail, winding its way from the Coralville Youth Sports Complex in the northwest to Auburn Hills Park and Wickham Elementary School in the southeast.
The concrete trail has plenty of shade thanks to the variety of trees that line the route, and the pathway is largely flat, making the trail an excellent option for those seeking a relaxing stroll or a place for dog-walking. Multiple neighborhood pathways and sidewalks connect the trail to the North Ridge Trail to the west, which trail users can take north to North Liberty or south to connect with even more trails in the area's sprawling trail network.
On the eastern end of the trail, the trail forks into two separate paths, one of which leads into the pleasant open space of Auburn Hills Park (a short distance further east, the Dovetail Recreation Trail begins across 1st Avenue on Auburn E Lane). The other path leads south to the elementary school, making the trail a convenient option for students and families to walk or bike right up to the school. Across the route, the trail does require several road crossings, so trail users should be sure to exercise extra caution at these spots.
Parking for the trail may be available on the western end at the Coralville Youth Sports Complex, located at 2480 Dempster Drive in Coralville.
