Coralville Creekside Cross

Admission Fee

Free and open to the public

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 March 3, 2020: Creekside Cross is closed until mid-June so that the course is not rutted by biking conditions that are too wet, and so that it can have repair and regrowth time in the spring.  This is a regular closing that the City conducts each spring from time of thaw until end of June.  

January 1-spring thaw

Open daily, dawn to dusk
(Dates are dependent on weather and course conditions)

Spring thaw-June 30
The course is closed in the spring when the ground is soft.

July 1-December 31
Open daily, dawn to dusk
(Dates are dependent on weather and course conditions)


Restrooms are available at the ballfield concessions stand when the Coralville Creekside Ballpark is open.


The course is just west of the Coralville Creekside Ballpark. Head west on Highway 6 past Coral Ridge Mall and Lowes. Take the first left past Lowes (Deer Creek Road). Cross the bridge and turn right (340th Street).

Course Etiquette

Runners should stay on the right side of the mowed path; cyclists should announce themselves before passing. The person being passed should move to the right side to allow the person to pass on the left.

Future Trail Access

Clear Creek Trail will be extended from east of Deer Creek Road to Creekside Ballpark, and will connect with Tiffin's trail west of I-380. It was bid in fall 2017, and construction began in 2018.
