Update

An easy section of trail along the river, this route floods frequently.

Amber Crews

Overview

Due to nearby lakes and rivers, this trail system tends to flood late spring each year. If the trail system says closed, do not enter and return after the trail has had adequate time to dry. The CITA (Central Iowa Trail Association) website will have updates about all area closures.
Features: River/Creek — Wildflowers — Wildlife
Dogs: Leashed

Runner Notes

Easy section of trail that is beginner friendly, although it floods frequently and easily.

Description

This easy section of trail follows closely along the river. It floods frequently and it is composed of dirt, clay, and sand. It is all singletrack and has some twists and turns, but very little in the way of elevation change. Keep an eye out for some of the full-time residents of the park on this trail!

Flora & Fauna

There are wild flowers, eagles, owls, deer, chipmunks, raccoons, squirrels, foxes, and an occasional coyote or wild cats. Beware of the poison ivy.
