About the Course

This 2.6 mile cross course opened in August 2017 and is the first permanent cyclocross course in Johnson County. 

It is open to cyclocross biking, cross country running, and cross country skiing. 


Updated June 16, 2020: Creekside Cross is now open. Use good riding etiquette by not riding if ruts are being left behind.   

*New at Creekside Cross*:  Phase I of the new Flow Trail at Creekside Cross will open on July 13, 2020. Help pack Flow Trail #1 by bringing your mountain bike or fat tire bike to our Open House and Ride Down event on Monday, July 13 from 5:30-7:00 pm. Observers also welcome to come and view the new trails.  Flow Trail #2 will be done later in 2020 and a grand opening will be held this fall during the Iowa Mountain Bike Festival on October 17.
