Announcement(s): AVOID USING THE COUNCIL BLUFFS RECREATION COMPLEX AS A TRAILHEAD.  

  • The Council Bluffs Recreation Complex, located at 2900 Richard Downing Avenue, adjoins the Council Bluffs Trails system. For security reasons, the Complex’s parking lots are locked when games are not underway. Trail users who park at the Complex run the risk of returning to find their car locked in.

Council Bluffs is home to a robust trail system with more than 40 miles of recreational trails used by walkers, runners, and cyclists. Trails wind from the east side of Council Bluffs all the way to River's Edge Park and connect to the Bob Kerry Pedestrian Bridge. Download the trail map for details. 

TRAIL CONDITION ASSESSMENT

The results of our trail condition assessment are in, and the results are impressive.  We do have improvements to make and it's our goal to have all of our trails in a "Good" or better condition within the next couple of years.
