The Linn Creek Recreational Trail is a 8-mile segment of a 17-mile hard-surfaced linear trail extending from Riverview Park to the town of Melbourne. The trail and several short loops link areas that provide a variety of outdoor diversions: camping at Riverview Park, the Nicholson-Ford Wetlands and OHV Park, the Marshalltown Family Aquatic Center, adult softball and Little League diamonds, playgrounds and picnic areas. Trail users can observe views of river bottom timberland and marshes, as well as prairie grasses and wildflowers.
The Recreational Trail is cleared of snow from 12th - 18th Avenue and from Center Street to 12th Street. Snow is not cleared around Timber Creek Pond, Goldfinch Pond or Glenwood Pond.
This trail is a collaborative project of the City of Marshalltown, Marshall County Conservation, and Region Six Planning Commission.
