Sports & Recreation

Love sports? Then you'll love Hiawatha, Iowa. Name a sport and we offer it in the Corridor. We have semi-pro teams in baseball, hockey, football, and soccer. Youth leagues and YMCA programs are available in every sport imaginable. And you can root on a wide variety of nearby college teams, including the University of Iowa Hawkeyes.

Hikers, runners, and cyclists love our many miles of pristine trails throughout the county. The Cedar Valley Nature Trail, for example, begins in beautiful Hiawatha and provides 51 miles of scenic land north to Waterloo, Iowa.

Golfers can tee off at more than 16 private and public golf courses within a 30-mile radius. And if snow skiing and snowboarding is more your style, hop in the car and head east to Sundown Mountain Resort in Dubuque or Chestnut Mountain Resort in Galena, Illinois.

If you have children, you'll love all the opportunities for recreation. Pools and parks are plentiful in the area. If you own a horse or wish to take horseback riding lessons, you'll find half a dozen stables near Hiawatha. And if your young one hopes to learn figure skating or join a hockey team, look no further than our Cedar Rapids Ice Arena.
