About half of the Flint River Trail is still in planning/construction phases. On the county side, a seven mile section extending from Flint Bottom Road to Big Hollow was officially opened to the public in October 2013.
Completion of the trail will require significant community investment. To help make the trail a reality, consider donating.
Background of the Flint River Trail
This project began as part of the Great River Gateway Vision Iowa project, which is providing funding for improvements to City of Burlington and Des Moines County community and tourism attractions - including Big Hollow Recreation Area, Burlington Public Library, Des Moines County Heritage Center, Burlington Memorial Auditorium, Burlington Bees baseball (Community Field) and the Flint River Trail. The City of Burlington and Des Moines County have been working cooperatively to complete all of these projects, including the Flint River Trail.
