Description

Wooded trail connects south end of Cedar River Trail to Wright Brothers Blvd and to Ely


The Hoover Nature Trail is a developing rail-trail in southeastern Iowa being built on a former Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad right-of-way. The trail is named for President Herbert Hoover, who was born in West Branch—one of 16 towns that the corridor connects. When complete, the trail will traverse six counties between Cedar Rapids and Burlington, offering a variety of landscapes, including woodlands, farmland, prairie and urban areas. Currently, the trail is open in several disconnected segments. (source)
