Cedar River Trail Closures

FOR YOUR SAFETY please follow directions on all posted signage.

The lower walk between Wells Ave N and Bronson Way N is closed in anticipation of more rain and snowmelt that may raise the river water level over the path.

The trail remains closed between the Cedar River Dog Park and Riverview Park due to riverbank erosion following the Cedar River flood event in February. Detours to Hwy 169 are through Cedar River Park and Riverview Park. City staff are working to secure a plan for repairs to re-open the trail as soon as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience.  


For Kids

Cedar River Trail Park will be closed until it is safe again to be together.  Remember that TRACK Trail brochures can be printed at home via the kidsinparks.com website, and you can use them wherever you are.  Take a walk around your neighborhood to see how animals live outside and are now building nests for their babies!
