“Nice to walk”
Review of Cedar River

Ranked #12 of 48 things to do in Cedar Rapids

Reviewed May 10, 2014

I really like walking by the Cedar River trails! It's a nice river and it's the heart of Cedar Rapids. I would like to see the City maybe think about a floodable river walk-way like the one they have in Grand Rapids, MI and other places. It would be nice to walk on the banks of the Cedar River.

The Cedar river is a pretty river. Looking at it at night on the west side of the city , Looking towards Quaker Oaks is beautiful. Great for fishing and boating. The 4th of July Ellis Harbor is lit up and makes the river look magical.

The trail that heads south by the YMCA, is smooth and great for bicycle rides, roller blading, walking, or running. I enjoy a bicycle ride every week and in the fall the leaves by the river are so colorful, it is a very enjoyable time, I even bring my Chihuahua's in a bike basket, I think they love the ride even more than me.

Ran the trail route south of town. It follows the river. Nice views of the river. The path is paved. But it is not lit, so plan accordingly. The path (after it leaves downtown streets) is isolated. If you want to be around more people, go north.
On the north side I lost sight of the river, but there is a stream with trout on a section.

Nice and relaxing.

I would have liked to seen it when it was pristine, but still a nice river. In CR a nice place to river watch is Ellis Park. The boat houses are interesting, and you can watch people playing on the river. People enjoy the river all up and down it's run. It would be beautiful to cruise but the dam at CR shortens your run. Because it has been filled by erosion, people don't enjoy it when it floods.
