Trails

Council Bluffs is home to a robust trail system with more than 40 miles of recreational trails used by walkers, runners, and cyclists.

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.
