From fall flooding to spring showers, water has left major sections of the Sac and Fox trail damaged, forcing the city to leave it closed for weeks.

The 7.1-mile trail, which has sections winding along the Cedar River and Indian Creek, was damaged by flood waters. It’s an aggregate trail, meaning there is no hard surface, and river banks that have been washing away are taking parts of the trail with it.

The Cedar Rapids Parks Department has had crews surveying the damage. They estimate repairs will cost around $12,000 said Parks Superintendent, Brent Neighbor.

It’s been a rough 6 months for the trail, that was never able to dry out after getting flooded in the fall.
