Outer Drive Trail Description

A two mile paved sidepath trail on the northern outskirts of Sioux City, Iowa, the Outer Drive Trail helps provide a connection between neighborhoods, businesses, and schools across this stretch of the city. The trail, also known as the Outerbelt Drive Trail, also helps tie these neighborhoods into the city's larger trail network, connecting at the eastern end to the more scenic Floyd River Trail, which leads deeper into the core of the city.

The Outer Drive Trail, as its name suggests, parallels the roadway of the same name for its entire length; the trail is wider and set back a little farther from the road than a typical sidewalk, but don't expect a whole lot of sightseeing opportunities or majestic vistas along the route. Despite its more utilitarian nature, the trail offers a fairly relaxed experience, running through quiet communities and undeveloped green space with some occasional shade from nearby trees. Those looking for a more traditional trail ride or walk can take advantage of the connection to the Floyd River Trail, which is joined seamlessly thanks to a bridge over the railroad tracks installed in 2018. Still, for local residents looking for a path to get in a quick jog or a nice place to walk their dogs, the Outer Drive Trail provides a convenient option.

Parking and Trail Access

No dedicated parking is available for the trail, although parking may be available at nearby businesses and schools along the trail; be sure to follow any posted parking signs and regulations. The trail is also accessible from several of Sioux City's bus lines that service Outer Drive.
