Description
Waypoints (0)

This route begins at the Western Historic Trails Center. Through bike trails and on-road lanes, the Iowa Riverfront Trail meanders through various locations and along the levee system in Council Bluffs, skirts the Blackbird Marsh County Preserve, and ends at Big Lake Park seven miles later. Accessibility: There are multiple designated handicapped-accessible spaces with striped access aisles in the parking lot by the Hampton Inn. The trail surface is paved and typically at least four feet wide. The estimated grade is gentle (all 3% or less) so will likely be traversable for most wheelchair/mobility equipment or stroller users.

Easy double pronged O&B walk on wide sidewalk crossing Bob Kerry pedestrian bridge and along levee on Iowa side. Wildlife management area along river that provided sightings of turkey, squirrels, rabbits and waterfowl. Start and end at Harrah’s.
