This 52-mile multi-use trail offers long-distance hikers the opportunity to travel from Cedar Rapids to Cedar Falls without getting into a car once. The trail runs primarily along an old railroad route through the Cedar Valley, and it sustained damage in some sections in the 2008 flood. This section of the trail explores the wooded area near La Porte that leads to a torn-up bridge overlooking a remote section of the Cedar River.
