Close to nature and close to town. Experience beautiful woods and water ways that lead right to local eateries and breweries. You’ll find plenty of bike enthusiasts on the trails or stopping by SingleSpeed Brewery after a ride—they’d love to swap bike stories and local love for the trial system.
With over 110 miles of hard-surfaced, multi-use trails, an abundance of soft trails, and emerging water trails, it’s no wonder why the Cedar Valley Trails was named Iowa’s Outstanding Tourism Attraction in 2018! Trails are free and open 24/7/365 for non-motorized and non-equestrian activities such as biking, hiking, cross-country skiing and skating.
The Cedar Valley Trail System is unique in that it covers both hard (paved) and soft (unpaved) trails—perfect for a workout on your mountain bike or your favorite hiking shoes. Much of the soft trail system is marked with rudimentary signs, and serve as the gateway to hidden, picturesque routes throughout Black Hawk County. Head out on your own (or with a group of friends!) and experience the natural beauty of outdoor Iowa.
