Hoover Trail
The Hoover Nature Trail is an 18 acre trail that connects Cedar Rapids to Ely - a continuation of the Cedar River Trail through Cedar Rapids. The Cedar River Trail also connects to the Cedar Valley Nature Trail to the north, which runs further north into Waterloo.


All three trails are part of the American Discovery Trail that runs 6,800 miles coast-to-coast across the United States. The trail is popular for biking, walking, running, nature study, and photography.


The Hoover Nature Trail is located near 76th Ave SW Dr and Spanish Rd in Cedar Rapids.  For a map of the Hoover Trail, click here, or see the map below.
