The trails sits within the corridor of Railroad Highway, but is separated from the road. The concrete trail is 10 feet wide, accommodating pedestrians, cyclists, wheelchair users and other trail travelers.

A 2-mile extension will be completed in 2019 which will connect the trail to the regional Council Bluffs and Omaha trail system. Future plans call for creating a continuous 17 miles of trail from Council Bluffs to Neola.
