The Cedar Valley Has Plenty Of Outdoor Amenities To Make It Easy To Slow Down And Enjoy The Fresh Air.

Need a thrill? Pull on your swim shorts and take a screamin’ fast ride down one of the few hydromagnetic water coasters in the world. Or, hop across the street to the Cedar Valley’s very own Lost Island Theme Park!

Sit back and relax as you tube down a lazy river. Take a hike or stroll through the more than 300 acres of woodsy Hartman Reserve or 35-acre Cedar Valley Arboretum & Botanic Gardens. Put your pole in the water and pitch a tent. Look up—you’ll see the stars.

Grab your bike and head for more than 100 miles of hard-surfaced, multi-use trails and many more miles of soft trails. Open year-round, these trails are also great for hiking and snowshoeing. Kayak or canoe the Cedar River and or paddle on 5,000 acres of lakes.

Cold outside?

No problem. Cross-country ski, strap on your snowshoes, or drill a hole in a lake and go ice fishing. When the snow flies, layer up and pull on your boots, grab a trail map, and gather your friends—hundreds of miles of maintained trails will be ready for your snowmobile.
