Grade - Unknown
The trail system in Muscatine, known as the Running River Trail System, spans approximately 17 miles, with another nine miles planned for 2015. The new expansion will connect Musser Park to the Wiggins Road Trail. The project will be funded by $510,000 in federal money, $300,000 from a state recreation trail grant, and matched local funds. The city of Muscatine is also contributing about $50,000 of in-kind engineering services for the $922,000 project.
The trail's addition will be 10-feet wide and begin at Kent-Stein Park near the Soccer Complex in Muscatine and run 3.4 miles to 41st Street. This will complete Muscatine’s segment of the Mississippi River Trail, which runs along the Mississippi River from Minnesota to Louisiana.
