|Cedar Valley Nature Trail|
|Iowa's Cedar Valley Nature Trail is a 52-mile linear trail running from Hiawatha to Evansdale. The trail surface is asphalt on the northern 15 miles, and the remainder is crushed limestone. The entire trail is accessible for persons with disabilities.
The terrain is flat the entire length, as the original locomotives required the grade be 2% or less. From prairie grasslands to woodlands to scenic stream and river crossings, the trail traverses numerous habitats and provides abundant opportunities to view wildlife, wildflowers and enjoy natural settings.
