Planning Trails, Side Paths, & Sharrows
Coralville uses the a variety of resources to guide planning for trails, side paths, and sharrows. City staff work with the Metro Planning Organization of Johnson County to determine best on street bicycle accommodations and on trail funding. Trail planning is also guided by the Comprehensive Trail Plan and by other community planning efforts.

Funding Trail Development
Trail development is funded in two ways in Coralville:
- Through state and federal grant programs with match money from local hotel / motel taxes
- Through working with developers as subdivisions are planned to place dual-purpose trails for recreational use and for sewer manhole access
Snow on Trails
General Trail Snow Removal
Within Coralville's trail network:
- Some trails and overwide side paths (sidewalks) are plowed
- Some trails are not plowed and are used for winter sports such as snow shoeing and cross country skiing
- Some natural surface trails are groomed for fat tire riding
School Area Trails
The City removes snow on trails which are directly linked to a passageway to a school. Those trails are:
- The Auburn Hills trail segment northeast from Brown Deer Road under the Muddy Creek Bridge to Kate Wickham School
- The Auburn Hills Trail segment north from Kate Wickham School through the woods, and at the T-intersection to go east to Auburn Hills Drive and west to Muddy Creek Lane
- The Oakdale Boulevard Trail from Kate Wickham Elementary to 12th Avenue
- One path through S.T. Morrison Park leading to Northwest Junior High and Kirkwood School complex
- Sidewalks in Central Park that provides access to Coralville Central Elementary School
Winter Trail Etiquette
- Stay to the right of the trail, or follow directional signs for singletrack trails.
- Use caution for snowy or icy conditions as salt or ice melt is not used on most trails.
- Do not use headphones or ear buds.
