Description

The Cedar River Trail runs from Ely Iowa (via the Hoover Trail), through Cedar Rapids via the Czech village and Cedar Lake to the Hiawatha (Boyson Rd) Cedar Valley Trail head. It’s all smooth blacktop with some shared highway sections in Cedar Rapids. It’s great for bikers, bladers, walkers, wheel chairs, etc. Some of the downtown Cedar River section in Cedar Rapids is currently (8/2013) closed for tunnel building but you can detour through the resurgent Newbo district with lots of places to eat, drink, and mellow out. Here are a couple of high speed videos that cover the whole trail plus the Cedar Lake loop. Enjoy!

Part of the Linn Country Trails System.
