The Hudson Road/Union Road Loop is a 9-mile (Figure-8) urban ride utilizing the multi-use side path trails around the UNI Dome and the northwest Cedar Falls area. You can mix and match the trails to your desired route length using Hudson Road, West 1st Street, West 12th Street, Union Road, and the paved shoulder along West 27th Street. The newly-completed Union Road Trail now runs all the way from 1st Street to 27th.
The loop is mostly flat with a few small, though gentle hills, so it’s great for getting in some quick miles. There are plenty of small eateries along 1st street as well, and College Hill and Downtown Cedar Falls are just minutes away. The scenery is actually quite good for an urban side-path trail.
