Regional Trails

Sioux City is located in Woodbury and Plymouth County in Western Iowa. Sioux City and South Sioux City have miles of recreational trails for bike riding and walking located throughout the two cities. There are paved trails along the Missouri River and trails that head out to the outer reaches of the cities. The trails offer a great way to get some exercise, get about town or enjoy the natural areas along the river.

Lewis & Clark Trail

The Lewis and Clark Trail consists of two trail sections that follow the banks of the Big Sioux River and the Missouri River as they wander through the city. The trail is paved and extends for over 6 miles.

The northwest end of the trail is located at the north end of Riverside Park near the swimming pool.  The trail then goes though the park, tucks under Interstate 29 then heads to the east to go past the confluence of the two rivers.

The second section of the Lewis & Clark Trail goes though Chris Larsen Park located on the north banks of the Missouri River and just south of Downtown Sioux City. The paved pathway wanders through the park going past the Sioux City Marina, the playground, the Spirit of Siouxland Statue and the Anderson Dance Pavilion. The trail ends near where the Floyd River flows into the Missouri River.
