Save on Gas. Check. Stay in shape. Check. Come on warm weather! Get ready to break out your bikes Dubuque! For those of you that didn’t know, the City of Dubuque maintains a comprehensive 53-mile bike and hike trail system. This system includes 28 miles of on-street routes and 25 miles of paved trails for walking, hiking, and biking. This off-road transportation system includes trails at the John G. Bergfeld Recreation Area, Eagle Point Park, Port of Dubuque, Chaplain Schmitt Memorial Island, and Peosta Channel. On-street areas include sections of the Mississippi River Trail through Downtown, the Millwork District, and the Washington and North End Neighborhoods.
In addition, the Chavenelle Road Hike-Bike Trail project is currently underway and is hoping to be ready for use soon. They are extending the trail along Chavenelle Road from Radford Road to the Northwest Arterial. This portion of the trail will connect the existing trail on the Northwest Arterial and give bikers, walkers, and hikers a new territory to explore.
Of course, the Chavenelle Road trail project came together after much planning; when the western portion from Seippel Road to Radford Road was completed. Followed by the eastern section from Radford Road to the Northwest Arterial. This trail continues to ensure a safe off-road trail for riders of all ages and abilities.
