It’s part of the Cedar Valley Lakes Trail Network a 120 miles trail system that includes numerous trails connecting with local recreation areas including Black Hawk Park, Cedar Bend Park, Prairie Lakes Park, Big Woods Lake, Hartman Reserve Nature Center and Katoski Greenbelt. This system is quite complex and it's easy to get lost. Fortunately there are some great resources on the Cedar Falls Tourism site here.  You can download a PDF map of the whole system, order a free paper version, or download an interactive trail map app for your smart phone. You can also scout the trail system ahead of time on Google Earth using biking directions.
