Flowing through the woods and grasslands adjacent to the Cedar River, the Locust segment of the Sac & Fox Singletrack strives to create a trail experience rarely found in the area – a linear singletrack tied directly to existing park infrastructure (parking areas, picnic facilities, and other multi-modal trails with community connectivity).

The singletrack alignment mirrors the Cedar River, flowing nicely onto and off from the Sac & Fox multi-modal trail at the natural bends near the parking area and the bike pedestrian bridge / equestrian crossing. Once off the Sac & Fox, the singletrack trail has the opportunity to flow in and around a mix of trees and grasses, providing an immersion in nature experience just out of site of Otis Road and the Sac & Fox multi-modal trail.

Access Info

From the Fir Avenue parking area begin onto the Sac & Fox multi-modal trail. Not long after the trail turns east (approximately 50 feet past the trail counters) there will be a sign post marked entrance to the singletrack on the left.
