Alt Names

Cedar River, Waterloo, Trailblazers Off Road Club, Black Hawk County

Last Known StatusOpen

Bordered by the Cedar River, this 180 acre property offers miles of wooded trails and two natural terrain motocross tracks. Amenities include a large flat and paved parking lot, vault toilets, a kiosk with map of the trails plus a shaded picnic shelter.

The park is open daily year-round but may close temporarily on short notice due to inclement weather so call first before heading out. Overnight parking is not permitted but camping can be found a few miles south at Deerwood Park.
