Show Connector Trails

Trailhead Information

This section of the trail head can be accessed anywhere on the north side of U.S. 67 between Fenno Road and South Bellingham Street with convenient parking immediately as you get off of U.S. 67 onto South Bellingham Street.


The Riverdale section of the Mississippi River Trail now stretches from the city’s western city limits at Duck Creek to South Bellingham Street, where trail users can cross U.S. 67 (State Street) with help from the traffic light at the intersection of South Bellingham. Near the trail’s end, users can cross Belmont Road to access Scott County Community College’s campus. Along the north side of U.S. 67 from South Bellingham Street to Riverdale’s city limits at Fenno Road, the trail is a 1.4-mile-long, 10-foot separated trail.

About halfway in between Duck Creek and South Bellingham, people can exit north off the trail on South Kensington Street to connect with Duck Creek Parkway in Bettendorf.

Other Information
