You should notice new signage directing you to paddling destinations all across the Cedar Valley! New signage will also be added to locations along the water trail to help paddlers better navigate both the Cedar River and Black Hawk Creek in Black Hawk County. These signs were made possible through a collaboration between the Iowa DNR, Black Hawk County Conservation, Cities of: Janesville, Cedar Falls, Waterloo, Evansdale, Gilbertville, Hudson, and La Porte City. The new water trail signage is part of the state designation of the Black Hawk County Water Trail. State designation will help promote awareness and safety of the navigable waters in the Cedar Valley. Keep your eyes peeled while on the road or in the water!
