Get off the beaten path in the Cedar Valley

Get off the beaten path - take our soft trails to experience the Cedar Valley's natural beauty. Great for hikers and bikers alike!

Our Trails are free to all

But still have a cost for upkeep and expansion...your contribution will have a positive impact on our trails!

Usable & Fun even during the winter

Head outside, get active and you will stay warm. The sun is out, the wind is calm so get your walking boots, cross country skis, fat tire bike or snowshoes and enjoy the fresh air with your friends.
