Travel along babbling brooks and prairie preserves before entering the University of Northern Iowa campus. You’ll also pedal through Paw Park and past The Falls Aquatic Center. Take time out to visit the College Hill art galleries, bookstores, and coffee shops, and the Hearst Center for the Arts’ sculpture garden.
A good place to park for this loop is the small parking area just across Main Street from Paw Park. This loop connects to the Cedar Prairie Trail, so you can easily extend your trip to the rest of the Cedar Valley Trails System.
